I was shocked by the amount of people who had a Nano aquarium based on the results of a poll from yesterday. Today I'm thinking we need to see these nano tanks so that may inspire some of us "nano-less" reefers to get one going!

1. Do you have a photo of your nano past or present that you would share? ADD IT!

2. Is there a particular reason you have a nano tank? Special nano fish, species only, you just love them etc?

@eschulist what do you stock in the tank?

Heres a pic of my NANO. I bet many of you would say this is not a Nano but compared to @dca22anderson tank mine is a nano.

I chose a small Peninsula tank as my first ever Aquarium ( I had a freshwater aquarium when I was a kid, doesn't count lol ) - Waterbox PM 25 - because I knew I wanted something small to divide my small living room / dinning area.

I also didn't want to go to big on my first try and regret having a massive aquarium.

I've struggled a bit, but I've found most everyone in the hobby to be very helpful and I'm starting to really enjoy my tank.

My issue is I love to tinker, and I love gadgets.

I'm 6 months in and I already want my upgrade! Lol

I actually started one about a month and a half ago, long ways to go in order to get it where I want it. But I’m happy with every step along the way :)

10G waterbox cube with a Newa pump and a RFG.

going to be mainly mushrooms and zoas on the bottom. Euphylia in the mid/top and RFAs everywhere in between

Added a few corals,



And I built a stand for it. Still lots I want to do before everything’s said and done

Do you guys run skimmers on your nano setups. I’m at college and was thinking about setting a 10 gallon rimless cube. I was thinking of only doing mushrooms.
I don’t run a skimmer in my 13.5
