mbuna cichlids, are strong and can handle some current but not to much.

ok, there is currently enough current tyo move food around the entire tank within a matter of about 15 seconds. I kind of like it like that because it means everybody gets food, and there are never any leftovers so I don't have to worry about that. so I think even though it is overkill on a tank this small it will be ok for now. Also in the near future, (6 months) this tank will be converted to a nano-reef, so the circulation will be really good for the corals I hope.

All's well that ends well.
Good luck on the future Nano.

yeah thanks, I will probably post the journal on here as I know I will be in need of lots of help, I will probably start with a FOWLR tank and then slowly add corals as the tank stabilizes and I get a little more experienced dealing with a smaller tank.

When you do start the Nano research the fish because not all fish are compatable with corals.

just a note, make sure you upgrade to a 55g or larger for those fish... they will grow like crazy and wont be very happy at all in such a small tank.... but it sounds like you already knew that

Yup no worries, thanks thincat and mfd, I have a tank that is being cycled and is going to be the new home for the cichlids, and as for the nano once I move the cichilds from the 20g I will start it. As of right now I am only thinking about trying to get a pair of clowns, and a good cleanup crew. That way I know the tank won't be overcrowded and they are ok with corals. Probably no anenome for at least the first year, and then we will see how it goes...
