This is excellent. I’ve been stuck with very large aquariums for all my reefing life, but I've always wanted a fully stocked stony nano tank. Something about filling it to the brim without busting the bank, and not worrying if plumbing/pumps/leaks will happen one day. I don’t even need a chiller on it! This nano is a dream for me and my anxieties of losing my corals from an inevitable pump failure are long gone!

So without further ado, here’s a new nano tank:

Tank: 20 gallon long from LFS
Lighting: 1 Ai Hydra 52 HD
HOB filter with activated carbon
Marine land diatom filter
Basic heater
Kaomer dosing pumps - Randy’s DIY Recipe 2 part with calcium carbonate and sodium hydroxide
Salt: Instant Ocean Purple bucket.

I had all these corals and inverts in my main display (which is now a FOWLR). I moved them into this tank with a live rock. :)

Looks great! Are these the corals you had to remove from your big tank?
Thank you. And yes, everything in this tank was from my now FOWLR tank (I had other LPS and leathers too that I sold to LFS).
