    A little background; I had this setup back in college and kept a pretty successful tank with primarily SPS along with hammers and zoas. Even with it being moved to and from the dorms every few weeks in line with breaks, I had decent growth and color. After graduation, I gave the tank to my...

    Looking back at my first reef tank a couple years ago, a 29 gallon from petco with a HOB filter, a $10 heater and two $8 powerheads from Amazon.. This tank had no business even keeping the hardiest of fish alive! I had no idea what I was doing! How did I grow coralline all over the rocks...

    What do you guys think of my nano reef?

    This is my Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 20 Gallon AIO tank. Started it up about a year or so ago, but it's not my first reef tank ;). All the coral started from little frags, so there is at least a healthy growth to some extent. Im not a guy to use aquarium controllers and high-tech type of...
