I am definitely buying a Dymax IQ5, it just what I do with it that I am not sure about.

Will either be a dwarf cichlid breeder / desert style scape or a salty one.

My worry is that I can leave a fw set up for longer unattended than a sw one and a tank volume so small could go wrong very quickly (zero sw experience)

Hmmm......

I find with the tank being only 80l that a weekly wc of 30% is a must, the corals don't open as much when it's getting to the end of the week but as soon as I do the water they go nuts, if you need to leave it unattended for more than a week or two at the most it mite not be the thing for you.

Yeah, the tank i'm getting is 13l so super small and therefore hard to keep stable.

Something like this would be nice, although I don't think it's suitable for the Bangai
