What a cool little tank. :P One day I would like to try my hand at nano reefs.
Do you find the up keep of such a little tank hard?

squiggles 12-09-2006 01:37 PM

no, i don't find the upkeep hard. i can't imagine with a huge one though now that we have a small one! it's so easy to do water changes with this one, 2g a week, so that's no sweat. plus we didnt have to buy a protein skimmer, we just have an aquaclear mini and an aqua tech filter for current, with no media in them. we we're lucky to find such cool looking small pieces of lr, it makes it look big even tho it's not.
