IM 30L Nuvo Fusion- Rookie

Looks great!
I agree w/Drfu. To secure them, Especially your arches.

Are they on the sand or directly on bottom glass?

Zip ties work well too.

Have a side shot?

Thanks! Here are the side shots. I left enough room to clean with my magnet. The rocks are sitting on a very thin layer of sand, less then half a inch. Do you see a placement problem for my MP10? Also, I have Bio Spira and a raw shrimp. Is that a good way to go to cycle this tank?

Ok, I finally have light, ATO and good water readings. What's Next....CUC?....Coral?....or Fish? Also, I'm currently running the stock sponge media in both baskets. Are they "Ok" or what should go in both or one of the baskets?

Looks good to me.
What light did you go with?

I just finished the cycle on a Nuvo 40, I am adding a single fish this weekend as, IMO, there is no food for inverts or corals and fish can tolerate minor swings in a new tank better.

Here is my filtration / chamber set up. Right to left-
1.in tank media racks w/ micro fiber pad, purigen, carbon.
2.IM reactor w/gfo
3.(middle). Float valves, heater, return
4. Skimmer
5.(far left).- i cut 2/3 bottom off of the stock media basket and run micro filter as there was no room for the temp & ph probes. (Reef keeper).

Thanks! I went with the current orbit LEDs because I'm a novice and it was plug n play with timer and presets. I'm planning on buying beginner corals and my tank is only 10 inches from water line to sand. Hope it's enough light, if not, I'll go with a razor or radion.
