Howdy from Texas. Used to run reef tanks but had to give it up the to moving a lot. Last time I had a tank was early 2000s. Boy have things changed.... Getting use to LED lighting when VHO and halide was the thing.

Anyhow, started a 20g Nano Reef. It's going through the growing pains right now. Currently no corals. Just live rock, live sand, and a chromis.

Getting my equipment together. Got ATO installed. Got a hang on fish box to work as a refugium. Some cooling fans for when it heats up in the summer. An AI prime 16 HD. Got get used to setting a light schedule. Playing around with it now and not the corals are in it.

Need to get a wave maker or power heads to give more flow. Need to get rid of dead spots.

Was going to attach a pic, but when I hit the attach file button, nothing happens. Oh well....

Take easy!

Welcome to the fishy family! I'm sure you'll be upgrading from that 20 G nano soon.... don't they do everything bigger in Texas? LOL
