Hi all,

Has anyone had any experience with the Innovative Marine Peninsula 14 or 20. I am trying to scratch the itch that I've had since I shut my E170 at the start of this year. I was struggling to keep up with the maintenance of it, largely because it was just completely impractical for someone in a wheelchair.  However, if I go for a smaller tank such as the IM Peninsula 14 I can have it on my desk, which I can get my chair under and easily work with.  Obviously, I am aware that dropping from a 200l tank to an approximately 50l tank is going to mean faster changes to react too. Also aware it means less equipment as I have no lower sump to hide it all in. I figure that given I am planning to just go with softies + maybe a pair of clown fish I can probably get away with most of the maintenance just being weekly water changes? With ChemiPure or Carbon and BioMedia in the back too.  Am I being massively naive?

@HK_Fuey Do you think the tank will cope with a pair of clowns? Particularly the 14 gallon?
