An experiment that i have done in freshwater and really want to try in a reef

Last year i tried an expirament in freshwater. I add elodea 3 guppys and some snails to a ten gallon tank. I placed the tank in front of a window. The sun grew the elodea which fed the fish whose waste fed the snails. In worked for 8 months until the power outage. I had 3 genarations of fish. I would like to do this with a reef. I would have a bunch of live rock and a bulky cuc. My goal is to use to cuc. I would have mushrooms and zoas grown by the light outside. My stocking would be a pair of nano gobys. My biggest concerns are flow and heat. Any suggestions?

Powerhead or two and a heater. They can get covered in algae and be fine, I've seen it in a LFS lol

I ment that they would work. Because TBH, I have no clue how you would keep a tank at ~80 degrees and keep good enough circulation without it...unless you live in a heated wind turbine.

Meh, redacted. I had a long, drawn-out response, but its probably not worth it. Sorry for interrupting with a redacted post.
