Saw a tank filled with Ricordia that looked awesome. Seahorses are nice too thats what our second saltwater adventure will be.

LOL, this topic got off to a great start.


I'd second a sweet softie tank. Go for all that stuff that'll kill your prized SPS. A nice sarco, hundreds of rics, plenty of zoos. Of course you know that you can add a large ric to the tank for three weeks, once established you can cut it with a scalpel into 8 pieces through the mouth and they will all grow into adult rics. So with 5 nice rics to start with in 6 months you could have 40. Then you can easily trade them to other reefers for their prized pieces of Japanese Bonsaii, Superman monti, strawberry fields cap, or Miami orchid torts. Not to mention a couple of seahorses or pipe fish would look really nice. The best bit of advice I've heard is forget the filtration and do daily 1 gallon water changes. Of course so TR doesn't come back and ask me why I suddenly changed my methods in regards to a nano, this advice would be for a low flow nano with sea horses and such that won't live well in a sparkly clean SPS clam tank. And because of the low flow you'll need plenty of nutrient export.

sorry for being off topic, but why is it called a Nano Cube?

nano meaning small, cube well cause it's a cube not a rectangle. Pico tanks are even smaller. Pico anything up to 3g, nano 3-40g, average 40-180, large 180+.

generally "nano cubes" mean that everythign is built in. They don't always have it perfect as far as lighting or filtration but you can do a low maintanence tank easily with one.
