Home depot definatly (my friends mom works there, maybe ill get a discount) anyways are you going to post your ideas and pics up eventually? im pretty anxious to see what your thinking. is there a diference between a powerhead and just a small water pump? pros-cons of using either? if theres anything im worried about its the pump. i need one with adjustable settings, because i dont know how many gallons per hour are coming in i have no way to determing the gallons per hour of the pump i should buy!!

Here is a good article to read up on for all Nano Reefs: http://www.aquabuys.com/page/aqb/CTGY/z2b

You should have a Powerhead with the GPH of atleast 10 times the amount of gallons your tank is. I have a 400ghp Powerhead.

Yes, eventually I will post pics and a log of my tank once I get it, which will probably be in a week (seems like a long time). My mom wont take me to the LFS when I need to go.

thanks for the link. i know what you mean, im only 14 but next year ill get my own car and show her whos who. thats why i decided on a 10 gallon because i had 1 laying around and could take the measurements and research before i went. i think ive decided on a EX 100 power head, it moves 130 gph. http://www.aquatraders.com/index.asp...ROD&ProdID=303
that site also has some plumbing parts im going to use.

Yea, I'm 14 as well, but we have to be 16 and a half to drive here.

That powerhead sounds good.

People either place it right on the Powerhead nozzle if it is small/big enough. If it isn't too size, they attach a clear plastic tube to the end of the head and then attach the 'y'.
