awesome and informative build! I should've checked this out before I annoyed everyone with my 20 ?s :p
I heard all the same stuff about small tanks vs. large in both salt and freshwater, but ya know what? If you can successfully run a small tank with concentrated water chemistry occurring; you can easily run a thriving, successful BIG tank that your fish will be incredibly happy with!
Nothing wrong with facing the harder challenge first
I subbed your thread, Im going to go back and read through it more since I'm new to sw
and learning as well... I may have questions for you! lol
btw, your scaping looks cool, IMO
... with everything centered like that the fish and invertebrates have plenty of spaces to hide/explore.
