    Build Thread From where I was to where I am. The adventure of a Nano

    This was the humble start of it all. Little was I aware of how much I would learn, make mistakes and fall in love with this hobby. Started with my purchase of an Aquatop Nano. Wasn't a fan of the black stand so I bought some adhesive vinyl flooring and gave it a more fitting look.

    Will the AquaMaxx NF-1 Nano Protein Skimmer Fit Biocube 32?

    I will need skimmer to fit on chamber 1 because the rest are full with other stuff and prefer skimmer on first one. Or anyone suggest any other good skimmer for Biocube 32 that is not the coralife Biocube one.
