I have a JBJ pico with one clown fish at this moment. he is going to transfer to the new tank once the cycle is complete.

I havent had a detail plan on what is going to keep in it. However, I did growth some frags from my main tank as followings:

Xenia,
Nephthea,
GSP
Zoanthids

Cool.
What are the specs on this nano setup?
The LEDs seem very bright.
I love that you can take out the whole filter assembly for maintenance.

I'd assume with that many LED's that each one must be less than .5w. Perhaps even lower? Great lookin pico!

CAD lights website say it is a 3.8W in total. I put a small Zoanthids in yesterday, It opens up very quick. I don't have the tools to test the PAR value but I do think the light is enough for some soft coral.

I find the white and blue led ratio is 2:1 and the Zoanthids show not as colorful as I wanted.
