starting 20 gal long nano
I am in the process of planning a 20 gallon long nano reef. Here is what I have in mind so far:
-20 gallon long tank
-2x 55w 30" power compact with legs, and 2 1/2 watt moon lights
-2 maxi jett 400 or 600 power heads
-40 pounds of live sand
-20 pounds of live rock, maybe later slowly adding up to 25 pounds
-heater of some sort
-hang on filter with no media just for a little extra water and water flow
I would like to have a few small fish in here as well. No more than 3. Along with some shrimp, snails and crabs.
Will I have enough bio filtration to handle this? I would like to add a skimmer, but don't think there will be enough room.
Any advice, input, or tips at all will be greatly appreciated!!!!
-20gal tall sump / refugium.
-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.

-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
