@najibda firstly I had plans for clowns and anemone. But after some reading i found that anemone wont be the right choice for me. Currently I plan on completely covering my rocks with purple algae before thinking of anything.

@all I will install 5-6 cooling fans on the tank and LED lights. Hope it will suffice to keep tank temp between 28'c.

5-6 fans will be killing IMO. Just add one to begin with. A high power CPU fan will do the job.

Najib vai is right.
Perchase a good high speed cpu fan and set it in a manner as it can blow directly the surface water of your tank. You can find mechanism of its setting & connection in diy section.
Infact Najib Vai himself is a diy guru. :D who can guide you.

And the purple algae you are talking 'bout is coralin algae. For its growth temp between 25-27 degree C , 2part regular dosing of Ca and buffer, pH between 8 to 8.5 stand by and good lighting is necessary bro.
So, do these things and you'll get good coralline within few months. :)

Best of luck..............

For nanos you need two CPU fans and run them alternately . Running one fan for long periods will affect its lifespan. So run one at a time alternately. For new tanks , keep an eye on PH , PH fluctuation is huge. For coralline dose CA ,MG and NAHCO3 . Your params needs to be close to this - CA > 400 , MG > 1350 ALK > 9 . One note : be careful about carpet anemones , they are deadly if you are dealing with small fishes [Predator prey relationship] :P
