    Hey everyone! I'm new around here, but not to saltwater. Ive had a few nano tanks in the past but unfortunately I didn't document them. Oh well they weren't much to look at anyway. My goal with this tank is a somewhat low tech, peaceful mixed reef with a few fish and inverts. To start off I...

    Setting Up a FluvalSmart SEA Nano

    Hi all! I just recently upgraded my light to the FluvalSmart Sea Nano for my 5 gallon pico reef, I’ve got some LPS guys and one SPS, And I’m excited about the new possibilities with the light, I’m just seeing some new algae growth and some of the corals are shrinking back, and I’m pretty sure...

    Mixed findings on filtration; don’t want to ruin anything with the wrong method. Advice on timing?

    Hi all, This is my first post here. I searched some of the key words in my question but haven’t found much, and I read mixed reviews on this subject: I’ve had a 5gal pico reef running for about a month now. It has the stock filter in it. There’s also a cherry shrimp in there. Seems happy...

    Kessil A160WE on a Pico - is it overkill?

    Hi there, So I had this idea of converting a 5g (25x25x30cm not sure in inches) dennerle to an AIO to keep some LPS like hammer, blasto, acans and some shrooms. I am trying to stay as low budget as possible, so hunting around for used lights. I have this rare opportunity of picking up a Kessil...

    Coralife clip on light on 2 gallon pico reef.

    Does anyone know if the Coralife LED Marine Aquarium Clip-On Light will grow soft corals? I’m thinking of using it on a 2 gallon pico reef.

    Nano Build TheReefVase

    A week ago I set up a pico reef in a 2g/8L vase. It will hold only zoa's and other softies. Maybe an euphyllia if the flow and light is enough from only a air pump and a cheap China LED. I don't know if 2g is maybe too small for sexy shrimps or a porcelain crab? Here's a video from when I set it...

    I'm setting up a sexy shrimp and rock flower tank. A waterbox 4g. I've had it running a couple months with only a few rock flower nems.

    I recently set up a pico tank at the office! I am not new to the hobby but definitely new to a tiny tank. As it cycles and gets settled in I am wondering what livestock I should toss in and am open to suggestions. The two routes I'm thinking are refugium life...inverts, feather dusters, macro...
