Fluval Edge V Reef Build

Hello folks! Its been about 3 years since I've set up a true nano tank but decided to take the plunge and get back into it today. I had a Fluval 5 gallon I wasn't using for much so I grabbed some aragonite, about 5 lbs of live rock and some pre-mixed saltwater. Luckily I found an extra powerhead I wasn't using so I should have good flow. Got everything put together tonight but haven't began water testing. Will give it a few days while I think about what all I wana do with this project. Any suggestions!???

With small tanks limiting stocking so much, I'd say a clown goby or two. Maybe a rock flower anemone garden.

Yea, I probably won't have any fish in there at all. I'd like to do a zoanthid and mushroom garden....so far that's kind of what I'm thinking about.

I've tried to post pictures of my progress but the app is saying my upload quota is reached??? Anybody know how to fix that??

Full members don't have the limited photo album.
Or you can use a site like photobucket.

Have had this tank as a SW nano kept a pair of Camelback shrimp and later with a Yellow Clown Goby. The shrimp spawned even. (none were able to survive).

No filter just live Rock and Macro Algae and an air bubbler. 5-7 days pwc of about .5-1G.
