20g FOWLR

Since im in the process of finishing up my 110 gallon build and things arent quite going as smoothly or quickly as planned i turned my old 20g into a fowlr and thought id share with the rest of AA.

I had the idea of a small "ecosystem" style tank without corals since funds are minimal but i ordered a few kids of macro algae from reefcleaners and want to grow them inside my tank. This gives me more to do in the meanwhile, more to learn, and gives it a better look than just two small fish and some rocks. Also lets me finish my planted tank journey i started while i was still doing freshwater.

Questions, comments, advice, anything is well appreciated. Thanks

Any pictures of your new setup? Are you using any rock or will it be fish only?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My layout thus far. Just waiting for the order of macro algae, and a few feather dusters. Hopefully my little "ecosysyem" works out good.

Mine did that as well. The coralline will come back and spread.

If it doesnt i may have to scrape coraline off the rocks in my big tank (which doesnt seem to good either). I can keep fish alive but cant promote algae growth? That sounds like fail.

Reef cleaners package came in! Hermits are living, John sent me more than a few extra snails, macro looks good and feather dusters are hiding a bit but should be fine. Now to acclimate and place

Everything is settling in, now that i've seen it though it looks crammed. Might be upgrading to my 30 long and going for a different look.
