3 foot desktop tank.

Instead of updating the old nano thread, I thought it was more appropriate to start a new one.

While being classified as a nano in terms of volume, it's actually 3 foot. I always find that funny, tanks can seem a LOT bigger than their volume indicates, especially when cleverly stocked.

The current stocking is an ocellaris clown and a PJ cardinal. Turnover is somewhere over 20x.

Lighting is temporarily a mixture of daylight power compacts and actinic t8's. I shall be purchasing a T5 luminaire very shortly (probably tomorrow..) .

The skimming is taken care of by a HOB recirculating skimmer that I DIY'd sometime last week (great results!), which you can see on the left of the tank.

I lost the clown! :(

Silly bugger. I found it stuck to the intake of the large pump. I'm going to assume he got stuck there while live, as the cardinal is fine and the parameters are also good.
