It's not about sequel movie..he.he.. :D :D , but just fullfiilled @ntony sugesstion to me, ok.. here we go..
the topic is about my new nano AQ, about three weeks ago I made a new AQ, a nano AQ (40 X20X20) volume about 20 L I guess, because I saw at nano AQ section in this forum..wow.. how beautiful they're, so I interested to make it one..and I put it in my living room, because my larger AQ placed at the outdoor, for the gravel I used red pearl ceramic, some kind of bio ceramic and kuartz sand, thick about 3 cm, I pick it up from my larger AQ so I think is already mature ( about the bacteria ) at least that what I guess.. I filled water sea, also from my old AQ, so I didn't wait the cycling, I put some coral such as cynaryna, button polip,star polip, mushroom, hammer coral , brain coral, buble tip anemone and some fish indeed, royal dotyback, red spot phanter, 2 blue devil, and marroon clownfish.. oh ya.. I add one "pelet" shrimp too, all creatures is small size of 'em, is that overcrowded ??
For the filtration I use waterfall filtration hang on at the edge of the AQ with zeovit, carbon active and sponge inside, is it enough ?? should I use small protein skimmer ?
For the lighting, I use 2 t5 NO 8 W day light and actinic blue
at the top of hood Aq, I add 1 cooling fan, so the pavouration is fast.. I have to add at least 1 L fresh water everyday
water parameter now : PH 8.2, Nitrit 0.3 , temp 25-28
feeding : mysis shrimp for the fish and coral feeding drip
it's running for almost three weeks and still just fine.. I hope it's always will,o. .ya, water changing every week about 20 %
so.. what do u think guys..?? c'mon tell me about it OK.. salam
PS : I'll take pictures and try to post it later

Overcrowded i think. Maybe you can solve the problem by water changing. But,will not it change the parameter of water fluctuatively? Also,u dont have any ps.

The sand i used to gravel is azoo quartz sand blue & white, and "koi food" is red pearl ceramic just like I mentioned above, zeovit I add at chamber of filtration as much as it can fix in it, beside sponge ofcourse... and water fow ( if u mean that) is 400 l/hr, and 200 l/hr.. I used 2 pump, thanx for asking but anyway... is anyone have experience with red pearl ceramic ..it seems quite rare to use.. isn't it... :D :D

Oopss...U've got me.. :oops: :oops: , I'm sorry, what I mean is zeolith rock, I was wrong from the beginning and gave a wrong clue.. I'm so.. so.. sorry, thanx for the correction.. :oops: :oops: and back to topic about fitration at my AQ, in fact I just use mechanical filtration and hoping bioliogical filtration from my "pearl". is it enough or just wait to go to disaster, what should I do ??

My tool kits is just 4 PH, No2 and alkalinity. just like I wrote before.. nothing else, and water parameter now seems not quite different, but maybe Po4 increased, because I saw some brown colony started appeared at my aq's corner
it's the picture under actinic
