Sounds like a good start. The IM 20 is nice and long, may need a powerhead at pne end. Depends on how the new pump and spin streams work though

I have a Nuvo Fusion 20. Here's what I got:

Radion XR15
MP 10
Eheim return pump (small one - the stock pump is pretty loud)
InTank media baskets, one on each side. These are amazing. You absolutely want these. Here's a link:

I run Chemipure blue on one side, Phosguard on the other
Marinepure balls in other two sump sections
Neotherm heater in reutrn chamber
Tunze Osmolator nano

It's a great little tank.

I bought the matching black Nuvo stand, and after MUCH research, I found 5-gallon jugs that will fit in the stand (for ATO). The normal jugs you find at your LFS will not fit. I can send a link if you're interested.

How do you like the Radion XR15?

I plan on picking up two of the media baskets, almost everything I've seen so far about the socks say they are terrible.

I'd be interested in that jug, if you would post that link it would be greatly appreciated.

XR15 light is great. It's perfect for that size tank. More than enough coverage. And the Radion mounting arm is WAY better than the AI Prime one. I actually bought a Prime first, but returned it since the arm didn't work for my purposes. My Nuvo is against the wall, so the arm/light stuck out way too far. XR15 fits perfectly.

Here's the jug.

I looked forever - it's the only one that I could find that fits it the cabinet. And it BARELY fits. So much so that I leave the jug in and just siphon water into it from another jug. I put the full jug on a stool and then siphon water down into the jug in the cabinet. It's that tight a fit. But it does fit. I can post a pic if you want.

Even looking on the AI page and using their "Us vs Them" to show the difference in the lights, the Radion XR15 even shows to be slightly better than the Hydra. I'm pretty well sold on the XR15. It's just a little more than the Hydra, so why not!
