14 Gallon Nano Reef Build

So I bought an aqueon cube (14 gallon) and am trying out the possibility of making it into a nano reef. Right now its very basic setup, tossed in my clowns and saltwater mollies with some live rock and hob with some chemipure. BTW - Clownfish SUCK to catch! They knew every trick in my book!

Trying to decide if I like the place it is, and if I do, my next plans are upgrading light, adding sand of course, and eventually corals (want to give time for it to mature up, even tho rock is from a fowlr tank I already have).

Mollies most likely will go back to fowlr or another tank...

Looking for ideas/thoughts/etc.

And don't ask me what # tank this is (because I really dont want to count and realize LOL).
 
Yeah they are super cool!
Went to Bluefish today and got 2 Chili Rasboras. That was all they had, the girl didn't even know they had them. They were in one of the little nanos by the crayfish tanks.
I want to try salt water but alas I am too lazy for that. :rolleyes: The fish are so pretty.

Oh super cool.. I have a 20 that I broke down I want to turn into two 10 gallons with a divider.. thinking of something like that on one side
 
So interestingly, I am pretty sure I have a spot of aptasia poking its head... Which is really strange, because in the FOWLR tank it came from, I had a bout of it to begin with, but after adding my fish, none really seemed to show their face... Curious to see what happens here - Either my puffer was keeping it at bay, or one of the fish in the nano tank are being lazy.
 
So after lots of thought I think I'm going to discontinue this. I love having the clowns next to me but I don't think it's a good setup for them as I observe them. I'm going to be switching over to a 20 gallon long. This tank will become a shrimp/nano fish tank.

The other issue I'm battling with us the equipment in the back. I'm going to do a "coldwater" setup so just a sponge filter.
