NANO Reef questions
Been looking at getting the 28gal NANO reef LED setup looking at about $600 for this baby. Seems a little pricey and i'm not sure of using LEDs with a reef tank. I also have a 75gal tank sitting empty right now was weighing the pro/cons of setting that up compared to buying the NANO. Which would be the smartest way to go? 75 is tank only it busted a leak few months back bought a new one and resealed this one. My other tank is a cichlid tank. So would have to get stand/filter/light etc....
If you have room for it the 75 is an ideal size for your first reef. Check out this older thread to see what a relative newbie did with a 75g and some solid planning. As far as LEDs lighting goes I personally want to go that direction in the future but the price is just too high right now unless you want to build a rig yourself.

I say go with the one you can most comfortably afford. Bigger tank = bigger $. It doesn't make sense to go big if you can't afford to get good equipment and do what is needed for upkeep. i once had the go bigger mentality until i got to a 210 gallon and i could not comfortably afford to buy what i wanted. i've since then downsized to a 100 g and can afford to do just about anything i need to do to the tank. i got really good equipment and it made my life easier to deal with the tank and i can deal with the unexpected expenses of the tank. JMHO. bigger isn't necessarily better.
