How am I doing?

Hopefully I'm posting in the right place!

I've just started setting up a possible nano tank (20G)

I'm using aragonite sand, my SG level is at 1.024 and I've just added 6lb of live rock for now.

My heater is running at 25c and I am also running a 600L/HR filter.

I don't plan on doing anything for a while now while it cycles, I was just wondering if I'm going in the right direction?

Thought so, I'll definitely get one in there, something like 1000l/hr - 1500l/hr?

best is to have a turn over rate of 10x the full system volume, so in your 20g its best to go with 200 gallons per hour or about 700 liters per hour
