JBJ Nano 24 gallon

Does anyone have one of these set up yet? If so any modifications you would like to share and/or pictures?

For what it's worth, I have the 12gal and 6 gal versions of your tank. The only change I made was to add a Hagen CO2 generator to the 12 gal. The plants had a major growth explosion and I've since had to take nearly a third of them out!

I turned the pump flow to the minimum--the 6 gal still seems to have too strong a current, but it helped. Added heaters to both. Added a single bulb LED blue light to the 12 gal [it's the old version that doesn't have them built in like my 6 gal does].

There's pix of my 6gal up on this Nano forum....

What are you planning for your 24?

I'm about ready to post pictures. I didn't make any mods, but I'm going to do something about the filter output, as it's a bit strong for the plants (and I'm being generous with "a bit".). No too much flow, just that the currents are too strong. I've got a thread going in the equipment thread.

I haven't bought one yet? Not sure if I am going to get it or a 29 (standard), or a 46 gallon bow front. I might be moving this summer and not sure if I should wait or go with the JBJ 24 (would be easier to move)

Just looking for some ideas on the nano.

I have the 12g version. The only thing I would point out is that stock pump sucks. I replaced it with Mini-jet 404 - waaay better . Also I put the heater in the compartment meant for carbon, so there's nothing in the tank besides aquascape. Hope this helps.
