Default JF's Nuvo 16

For some reason I can't stay away from the nano tanks..

I have been dedicating a bunch of time and money to this little tank.

Tank is a Nuvo 16 (Thanks Akma) and it is temporarily lit by a Maxspect 60. I will be upgrading the lights to either an AI sol Blue or AI vega.

WOW JF, everything in and about the tank is sick!! The pattern on the clowns is very defined. Why did you change the rock work?

I had a maxspet 60 over the tank and the spread was not that great. I have been considering moving back the rock now that I have the ai sol. We'll see.

Also, do you guys think 1 MP-10 would be too much for this tank?

You get better spread and par numbers from the AI?

I dont think so, plus it will help keep the cleanliness of the tank. I have been considering one for this little tank.

The AI is over kill for this tank. I keep it at 30% white 40% blue 40% royal Blue.

I have to find an MP40. I thought it might have been too much for this tank but I'll just throttle it down.

Great tank J!

Is this an AIO or is there more to the system underneath?

Beautifull corals and I love the clowns (altough not a big fan of that nearly completely white variant)

This is all in one. All I have in the bottom is a container with water for the ato.

I don't, but for a tank his size the tunze 6055 footprint is to big. MP 10 will have to do.
