Bribos rebooted 20 nuvo

Posted this in the wrong section first

So unfortunately due to having a baby 1.5 years ago I had to tear down my old setups. However now that we have moved and the baby is older I will be rebooting my nano 20 nuvo tank! Currently it is cleaned but just needs some glass cleaning from a bit of dust build up...

Current equipment I will be using on this tank includes:
-AI hydra 26hd
-Vortech mp10
-I ordered a filter/fuge rack to go in the back and new brackets for putting the light on.
-Need to order a new rodi as I had a bulk reef supply one but not sure if Iíll do that or get a spectrapure
-I have plenty of dry rock, not sure on scape either
-Looking into ATOís for the tank as well

If you have any suggestions on rodi or ATO let me know!

Stocking wise Iíll probably go with 2-3 small fish and then zoa/lps heavy and rock flower nems. Some SPS but Iím planning on doing between a 120-180 next year thatíll be SPS dominant and the wife loves corals that move so Iíll be pleasing her in the smaller tank!

Nice to see you back in action man. Things will look real nice in no time. Currently, I'm running an aquatic life twist ro/di unit and am really liking it over my old BRS one.

Thanks guys! Iíll take a pic of the scape I built when I get home in a bit.

Hank whatís the price on the aquatic life rodi compared to brs or spectra? Does it have easily adaptable fittings? I will be fitting it onto the laundry water line

Looks good! I like the open space and how it wraps around the center but is still 2 separate islands! Are you going with bare bottom, or just not adding sand till youíre 100% on your scape?

I run the dual resin unit...I modified mine with a booster pump and TDS meter from BRS to round it all out. I believe it came with the adapter I used to hook it up to my old laundry faucet...but do not recall.

Iím gonna putty all the rocks together I think so itís more stable and then get sand. I donít have the rodi unit yet so Iím not in a rush to get sand either. Probably going to order an rodi this week and hopefully have it filled the week after
