Hey everyone, I have been really looking forward to getting the nano tank going. It was sometime in December that my wife and I decided that we were going to change her FW planted tank into Nano reef tank. Ever since she brought home her 10g FW tank from her classroom I thought about turning it...
Well were about to ring in the new year and I thought I would throw a party. We have all had a lot of accomplishments in the 2007 Year. Lets share some pics. We can call it the Before and After Party. Lets see some before and after pics of growth, change...etc. Lets hear some ideas for the...
So about a week and half ago I started a new tank. I got a new JBJ 28 gallon HQI Nano Cube. I added the Nano Tuners 2.18 PC light upgrade and a JBJ Arctica 1/10 hp chiller. I have 28 lbs of LS and 28 lbs of marshall Island and Tonga Branch LR. (I will add pics of my set up tomorrow.)
We were given this tank in order to rescue it from Hair Algae.
Details we currently have on it until later when I can get some lights on and investigate contents better ...

I asked for some advice on another forum, and what they told me was shocking. Long story short, basically I dont need to have any mechanical filtration besides my skimmer, if I have a very established tank with enough sand and LR?

ok, quick question. just how much room do my swimmers need? i added another 20 pounds of base rock last night, which brings me up to about 50-55 pounds of base and fiji for the moment. i'm also intending to add another 30 of the good stuff, as soon as casey is ready to sell (hint hint ;) )
I have noticed Live rock from different places. Are some better than others. I do see different prices. Which would be the best for a reef tank?
I would imagine its best to get it cured?
