Hello all, I hope all is well with everyone in this time of hardship! I know that I haven't been very active in the past few years, well because of life and such. I have been looking to jump back in the hobby with perhaps a nano tank with only small SPS corals and maybe a fish or two. Ideally I'd like to establish something with a strong arthropod background to sustain a Mandarin. I have always loved the look of Zoo's, so I'd ideally like to make those the primary focus with a few others small corals. Ideally, I'm looking for an all in one unit such as a nano cube that would fit on a good sized desk. I'm asking for opinions or suggestions, thanks in advance!

Welcome back Brother! Sounds like a plan. I wouldn't go too small with a mandarin unless it's accustomed to eating prepared foods. They can go through a lot of pods.

Great to meet you! Definitely go for maximum volume, for success with a mandarin. In my experience, they are the kind of fish you should forget you want, until you have a well established mixed reef, somewhere down the line. No matter what, have fun and looking forward to hearing how it goes.
 

Would you be shocked by today's reefing hobby if you had just returned after a long period of time?
