This kit will not include the stand in the purchase. The lights are great for softies and some Low light corals however would not support many high light SPS and other intense corals.
Water will weigh around 8 lbs per gallon putting it up to 160 lbs off the bat, the tank will weight around 30 lbs, and any other components will weigh the tank down such as sand and rock. Ideally a stand with 250-300 would be optimal. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Great question, with your current set up it would work well to transition some sand, live rock, and other livestock from the 55 down to the 20! You will need of course the refractometer for measuring the salinity levels, and proper sized heater for a 20 gallon tank (2.5 - 5 watts per gallon) Over all the standard tank package with lights would work well for most soft corals!
Most any coral will work just fine! We find softies work great as easy to care for such as Zoanthids, Palys, Mushrooms, and Green Star polyps. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Having said that, while I'm looking at your Nuvo kits, it would be helpful if you included in the descriptions the actual dimensions of the tank. I want to get a tank, and I want to get it through you guys, but I can't decide without knowing what the sizes are. It's possible a bigger tank will work better in my space than smaller.
Thanks so much.
We do have quite a few dimensions and descriptions on the tank page itself included in the link below!
Overall the dimensions are Tank Dimensions - 24” Width: 15” Height: 13” Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
You do not need a skimmer if you can perform regular large water changes once a week. We have these tanks currently running without a skimmer and regular 5-10 gallon water changes once a week and they are thriving. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
For the Nuvo 20, I'd recommend the 75w Neo-Therm.
As long as the rock has been cured beforehand (about 1 month) you can add the bio-spira and add a fish right away.
For improved performance you can purchase the Desktop reactor to run GFO and Carbon and possibly the desktop skimmer for waste removal.
With nano tanks there are a lot of DIY solutions for filtration. As for power head you will want between 200-500 GPH flow (often koralia and other cheap power heads work great) For filtration you can rely on the live rock and possibly a reactor for Carbon and GFO or consider modifying a small hang on back filter to provide an area for running media. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
A protein skimmer will help to remove waste in between water changes however on smaller tanks typically for best life span of corals and best looking tank weekly water changes will still help to keep the tank thriving. The unit is very quiet with proper insulation of pumps. You certainly can upgrade light in the future if more high light corals are added! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Fusion 20 gallon tank is 13 1/8” tall without the light attached.

Good product By Liam on 12/1/2016Liam would recommend this product to a friendGreat kit. Only thing i found was that the powerhead was too powerful for most beginner corals like softies and some lps. I use the 600gph powerhead that came with this to mix saltwater and keep a less powerful one inside the tank.
Amazing! By keeks on 11/29/2016keeks would recommend this product to a friendVideo was great help. Love how easy it has made this!
Great tank and starter kit By Troy on 5/12/2016Troy would recommend this product to a friendI have had my NUVO Fusion 20 set up for about three weeks now. I couldn't be happier. It has been over twenty years since a had a saltwater aquarium and I can't believe all the new technologies that make it easier. I currently have 2 percula clown fish and a small clean up crew. I am planning to add a shrimp goby and pistol shrimp soon. After my tank is matured more, I plan on adding some corals. Thank you, I will definitely be a repeat customer.
