Like the topic says "Show us a full tank Nano pic !!!"

Me and a few other people would like to take a peek at everyones Nano. Please post 1 full tank pic. Just the best full tank pic you have. It really doesn't matter how far along your Nano is. We all would just like to see all the different Nano setups.

Also please give a brief description of the tanks setup.

Thanks in advance.

I've got two nanos, as I haven't been able to afford a bigger tank. This is my large nano, my 15 gallon. It has 166 watts of PC lighting. One 55watt 50/50 10k actinic 03, one 55 watt actinic 03, one 10k 26watt, and one 26watt actinic 03. It has a Prizm skimmer, DIY auto-topoff system, a 20 gallon refugium with base rock and caulerpa. the tank since this shot has had a MAJOR algae bloom, and I think it is because I had four fish in there for a while. I hope that it will soon become as nice as some of the other tanks I have seen in this thread.

Now here is my second nano that I JUST SET UP! ! ! !:D :dance: :beer:

It is an eclipse 3 gallon modified to fit an incandescent screw in type bulb. I have the coralife screw in 10 watt 50/50 PC bulb. I added an aquaclear 200 for circulation, and i have a lot of shells and some LR in there now. I am probably going to add some xenia, mushroom anemones, green star polyps, and maybe some zoo's and see what happens. i may make this tank my mantis tank if I ever find one!

My Nano tanks

I just started two tanks a month ago.

I orginally started with an eclipse 12 but changed it to a glass bow 16 gal tank due to all the scratches that occurred during my live rock setup. 96 watts of pc lighting. The quad bulb 50/50. About 20 or so lbs of live rock.
Our family in the 16:
2 black clowns
1 yellow watchman goby
1 bi-color goby
1 BTA
I lost count of snails and hermits
1 Emerald Crab
1 striped bristle star fish


I would show a picture but I am not sure how to get it in the message block. Maybe someone could help me with it.

I attached the picture of my 7 gal. I will reply with a picture of the 16 gal until I figure out how to attach to the message area.

I also have a minibow 7 gal with 32 watts of pc lighting. 12lbs or so of live rock.

Our family in the 7:
1 maroon clown
1 neon goby
1 BTA
a bunch of nails and crabs
1 emerald crab
1 striped bristle star fish

Generic 10g tank (whatever was available at PetSmart)
55w CSL 50/50
Not sure how much rock
Clump of macro algae in the front of the tank
Colts, xenia, shrooms, macros, leather
~15 astreas
Coral banded shrimp
1 blue "dumsel"
Penguin mini-bio wheel (wheel removed)

Been up about a week and was thrown together from stuff I took out of an old tank.

It has been quite a long time since I have been around but my little piece of the ocean is comming along nicely.

Humble Beginings.


And now my little Minibow 2.5 with life, coraline growth, and even a different fish.


The pictures don't do it justice, but it has really come a long way.
I plan on buying a Nano cube soon, and moving everything into it. I really like the more self contained look, aswell as the options of upgrading that I have.

Anyway, almost done with another year of college, and I can't wait to be home. I plan on spending alot of money over a Capucino Bay. I was in there this weekend and saw a guy that bought a clam the size of a small pecan, and a rock of really preatty rics for only 40.00. All I have to say is that there place is top notch, and the lady that works the counter is the coolest.
