    10G Cubey reborn after 5 year hiatus

    Here in CA we are 'shelter in place' and literally are discouraged from leaving our homes or if we do keep social distance (no closer than 6') so on and so forth. Long story short, I cleaned up the nano from the garage, tooth a tooth brush to the LR and setup my beloved nano after more than 5...

    Hey all, wanted to see what advice and experiences y'all have had with fish being aggressive in smaller tanks, and how to deal with it.

    Do you consider a tank above 30 gallons to be nano?

    Why are tanks above 30 gallons considered “nano”. I feel like that needs to be changed because calling 30, 35, or 40 gallon tanks nano Just seems very not right. They are not nano at all in my opinion, the cost of setting them up is especially not nano. What do you think?

    Bag/Sock Micron Size to Catch Chaeto Pieces, but not Copepods

    I have a Waterbox 20 Nano running a Tunze Algae reactor. The return for my reactor feeds into the same chamber as my return pump. Loose bits of chaeto are flowing into the chamber and eventually cause my return pump to clog (even with a cover on the intake). I was thinking a simple solution...

    Let's see your workstations.

    I know everybody wants to show their sexy reef tank, but what do most of your workstations look like, and where do you keep it located? Mine is a custom stand, to house my ATO and water changes. I like to have an actual bench and keep my stuff accessible since I'm running a nano. Ma
