Just thought I'd share pics of my Nanos before they go away. The 20 gallon will be merged into a 75 gallon. The office nano (11 gallon Via Aqua) will stay as is.

Thanks...

It's been fun, but requires CONSTANT attention because of the bioload. The contents will be a nice "Starter Kit" for my new 75 gallon.

It's a red open brain coral. Yet another reason for upping my tank size. That guy was only the size of a tennis ball when I got it. It's now as big as a softball! I do spoil him though. He gets fresh tiger shrimp once every month.

Beautiful tanks! Nice rockwork especially in the 20g. They really look like reefs!

Could you post some specs on your tanks? Lights, power heads, etc.?

Thanks again... Some specs on the 20..

20 gallon
CPR BakPak 2R
Jalli 2X55 W PC's (Modified, stands removed, PC's on eggcrate and acrylic rods to bring light closer to water) 1 full spec, 1 actinic blue.

5 inch DSB (Southdown and LS mix)
2 false percs
1 orchard dottyback

1 black brittle star
snails, snails, more snails and both blue and red legged hermits
1 squamosa. I had a maxima too, but it was attacked (byssal threads) by a lysmata and succumed :(
Too many corals to list here...but if you have any questions about what a certain specimen is in the photos, ask away.

office nano specs..

11 gallon Via Aqua curved glass tank
2X18W PC (Again, converted as explained above)
mini cascade hang on filter (media removed. I run carbon only when needed). I use this to move more water and create chop on surface

4 inch Southdown SB with LS boost from my 20.
I have 2 pepermint shrimp and 1 bangai cardinal in this tank

Dancn...yes, that is a branching frogspawn in the 20. I bought it with two branches/heads. It now has 5.

Thanks again!

Dave next time we should shut off the dinning room light before taking pix.

Dale loves hanging out at your house! He was getting a little tiered and grumpy when it was time to go tho. Once I put him to bed I think he was in a deep sleep in about a minute! Thanks for the invite!
