    Yep, I agree with divott. Pics, Pics, and more Pics. I love the look of nano tanks and this one sounds like it's going to be awesome and a ton of fun to build.

    There will definitely be a good supply of pics. I'm planning on starting to build my rockwork tomorrow. I think Im going to go fishless for this project. Maybe just a shrimp.

    Nothing wrong with going fishless, less bioload. But if you go with just a shrimp you need to get something like the sexy shrimp or a blood red shrimp. JMO

    I just finished gluing about 15 different types of soft coral and LPS to the rockwork for this tank. Now its into my frag tank to cook. As soon as I find a place for this tank Ill have it fully set up with coral in it.
