Due to miscalculation, I ended up with a spare Skimz iBox Nano IOS Tank (only).

So I thought to myself… What the heck… If they can make these things so small, there must be some kind of reef that could to kept. So start my Nano/Pico tank adventures...

Dimensions: W180mm x D225mm x H245mm

Pump: Dymax PH200 (5W, 200 liters/hr, 5-10 liters)

Light: Hopar LED-200 (Blue+White, 3W, 21 LED)

Before Setup

After Setup

post-22745-0-25070100-1375022754_thumb.j

Found a small skimmer but not small enough to fit into the IOS compartment… Will continue searching probably will go for those limewood type.

Considering using LIVE rocks to cycle.

Please hit me with all the necessary wisdom to make this work. :P

Thank you.

Wah... 2-3 times a week! I MUST find a skimmer. Once a week also can but bioload have to be low. Seriously no skimmer can work well in that space and set up.. U can try the dymax iq skimmer if it fits. Even changing Sanders 2 lime wood every 2-3 weeks, all I get was very light tea color. Yeah... Currently 30 degree Celsius.

      Has anyone seen dwarf gobies besides clown gobies before. I have always found them beautiful and they have practically zero bioload bcs of their size. I am planning to keep a school of them in my 20 gallons. I know it may be abit small but as i have found, they have very little bioload
       
      i cant seem to put a pic of a trimma goby here so...

      This gonna be very interesting journey , I never thought that I would ever document my reefing journey. But would definitely give a big thank you to SRC forum admins and all the sponsors for coming up with this initiative to encourage all of us to more actively participate and share part of out life in these mini threads.
      First of all let me give a brief introduction about my reefing journey.
      - I started reefing roughly around October 2018. ( yet to reach the 2 year milestone )
      - Equipment  :
       Innovative Marine Lagoon 25 ( its a 25g small tank perfect for a beginner )  IM Nano Ghost Skimmer ( not the best in the market , but not the worse too )  Eheim Canister Filter  ( All mechanical filtration removed )  China brand wavemaker which I eventually changed to a Nero ( one of the most expensive equipment I bought to this date, But no regrets because Nero is a work horse)  Eheim Return pump ( Which I had with me during freshwater tank )  HS-28a Chiller ( Its really decent and so far been treating me well , not that noisy or maybe I'm use to it )   My very first light was a white LED light i used on my Arowana tank (Initially I wasn't sure if i wanna spend a lot of money on light with wide spectrum and it took sometime for me to read and understand before i got myself a second hand AI Prime HD )  Last but not Least , Im using a very old table as my cabinet for the tank ( Which is in use to this date and those who know me been bugging me to change it to a proper cabinet (For safety)  , but hey sometimes I can be a bit stubborn.  . )  Well we all have gone through that phase where the tank is empty and you see all the reefers posting their nice tanks and you wonder " How in the world " gonna fill my tank. Give it sometime and you will be telling yourself " I NEED A BIGGER TANK " 
      If anyone have any questions regarding the equipment, feel free to comment and I will try my best to explain to the best of my knowledge.  
      my tank look as of 16th Oct 2018 :
