10g zoa tank

Ok I finally decided. I was juggling a mixed tank excluding sps or a zoa tank and i decided after some long hard thinking its just got to be the zoa tank.

Now i was all enthusiastic when I realized I had a lot of questions

1. Bare bottom or not ( kind of leaning towards an inch of sand )

2. Filtration ; I've heard that having a filter is not a bad idea for instance I can run a filter sponge and even carbon, but was wondering wont a sponge become a detritus factory. also an aqua clear 50 can be modded to be a " Hang-on refugium " for pods etc but was wondering how do u keep the pods from getting mashed up in the propeller.

3. Lighting i have no idea what to do for lighting help!!!!!!!! Was thinking LEDs but want something that will be just over what zoas need to , ensure enough light. I want something with everything needed, actinic , whites, nightlight, and possibly some other features like dimming or maybe full spectrum really flustered helllllppp!!!!!!!

4. Circulation : i hear things like 10x 20x even 40x ( probably for sps) and alot of places say that zoos need low to moderate flow so i want something like the koralia nano240 then i remembered that zoas will grow towards flow and if i want them to grow evenly i need something like the vortech mp10 that makes random flow im also really flustered on this

Feeding: my final topic what do i feed them i know some zoos accept meaty food and i can try that but what else. Bbs, cyclopeez,etc...

Thank you in advance just dont want to mess this up
