Here are some pictures of my nano as of 25 May...

I've just added the following this past week:
- 1x55W 50/50 PC (DIY w/ e-ballast & 24" reflector) 24/5/03
- green hairy acro (a. millepora) 22/5/03
- fire coral (millepora sp.) 22/5/03
- blastomussa (red polyps w/ green center) 22/5/03

Lighting now consists of:
• 1 x 55W 10000K PC on a 12-hour photoperiod
• 1 x 55W 17000K (actinic) PC on a 12-hour photoperiod
• 1 x 55W 50/50 PC on a 9-hour photoperiod
• 1 x 15W actinic FL on a 13-hour photoperiod
• 1 x 13W PL on a 12-hour reverse photoperiod for the refugium
• Bulb height from water surface is about 3.5 inches

That's a freakin' TEN gallon??!?!?!?! It's got more stuff in it than my 72!! Excellent job! I'm jealous. I've got a 12 that I'll build up, in ten or twelve years, you'll have some competition...:beer:

Starting a new 20 gal, grow out tank - might take a few years to catch up :funny:

Thanks all!;) I'm always and truly inspired by both my local reefing club as well as online reefing community. This is a great hobby and sharing of experiences is very much a part of it.

Here's an updated pic from the left and right angle...

Amazing, I got Nano envy.

I got a 15G that is not even close to that.

Keep it up.

Elgo, Rob, Buzz... thanks for the feedback, comments and encouragement.

Elgo, try the link in the first post above. You'll find specs/setup info there. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

Buzz, do keep us updated on your 10g setup and progress.

Dan

Thanks Tpeck, RWD... a very nice complement indeed :)

Here's my latest addition, a purple tip table acro. Montipora danae, t. crocea and t. derasa moved to other spots on the reef to make room for the purple tip... which is now the centerpiece.

LittleFish... I am always on the lookout for small 'bonsai like' specimens and frags. That's how I manage to stock the wide variety of corals in my nano and with proper placement/spacing...create a 'big tank' look :)

Thanks bigT.

I expect that many of the corals will outgrow the tank in the next 6 to 12 months and I will need to frag them. If I setup and cycle my new and larger nano (20g) in time, I'll simply move some of them over.

I took this full-tank picture yesterday, a day after adding the purple tip acro.
