Haven’t started a build thread. Unfortunately I’m not the best at taking pictures until everything is done but I’ll be sure to update this as things change! Anyhow love seeing everyone’s nanos and awesome ideas i see!

Tank is a mixed reef (always changing) and currently housed by 3 residents.

Storm Clown
Helfrichi Firefish
Fireshrimp

Added some close up shots of some corals but always open to ideas as well. FTS is not currently what it looks like, mostly dominated by scolys on the ground now. I will update the thread with more current photos of the tank soon! Happy Friday reefers!

This looks like a good start to your build thread and we look forward to hearing more about it came together, hear where you are headed, and then see more pictures as the system matures!

So the update on this little nano....put together a simple Apex EL on this tank. So i can get basics and certain necessities and hopefully more in the future. Definitely exciting so i can’t wait to see what other possibilities i can add to this little nano what do you guys think overkill? Lol haven’t got around to wire management i was just so stoked to just use it! Lol

With the hang on fuge so far everything has came together oddly enough...still working my way around my top not having a secure fit seems to be the only challenge and I'm thinking about cutting it down a little just not sure if I like the fuge hanging on the side vs. the back...I'm going to try a few things before its something I want to keep in the long run though so just feeling it out for now.

Your tank looks beautiful. I will be getting my IM 20 on Friday and will probably be setting up next week. Your tank gives me great inspiration.
That’s very nice of you, though we are our own critics lots of times mine is nearly no where near what I think you’re describing but I’m very humbled so thank you! I can’t wait to see yours up and running! Be sure to tag me and definitely love seeing new nano builds!

So it’s been sometime since I’ve updated the thread and I’ve decided to share an update. I have since took out the hang on refugium as i was literally leaving 0 nutrients in the tank and Dino has been my culprit. I got rid of the hob refugium a few hours ago and upped my game with wire management and everything else to make it much neater than the last guild with the apex just kind of laying there. Corals have also been added and some traded for others and as far as fish go my helfrichi some how had ich after keeping him for a good year out of the blue with no fish added so i quickly quarantined him but didn’t make it out of quarantine and low and behold he was a goner. I have however found my clown a mate who she is absolutely ecstatic about and to say the least they are both funny. They literally sleep together in the paly colony together. Anyhow enjoy the updated posts excuse the Dino as this is my hardest task thus far and will update once that’s over!
