Zachs 20 gal long build, addittions and filtration

Hello all,
But now i am back. And in the past weeks things have changed. First off i have new additions. Coraline alage and baby turbo snails! I will post pictures tomorrow but i can't today because i have to study, (i have 2 finals tomorrow.) I have also ordered new filtration. I bought 15 pounds of base rock, this will eventually help filtration. In addition, i am upgrading to an aquaclear 70 filter and making 1 chamber a fuge! What do you think? Now to the big elaphant in the room, stocking. I was very arrogant about stocking but i have changed. I have realized that the best nano tanks have low bioloads and nice corals. My stocking will be 2 designer clowns (what type do you like?) 1 royal gramma. 1 yellow watchman goby and 1 red striped goby. I am thankful for all the advice i recieve on this site and Happy Holidays!!

Good approach - lower bioload, nicer corals. With the right water quality & light, you might even be able to keep sps.

Zach - much improved bio load. Just make sure you add them slowly, one by one, with the least aggressive first, and the most aggressive last.
