Ok, so I got my nano up and running this weekend. It's a 7 gallon mini bow. There is 20# of Live sand in there and 6# of LR. So far I have added a misbanded ORA clown, and an clown goby. I am planning on upgrading the stock fixture with a 32W PC retrofit kit that should fit into the stock strip light housing. right now there is a 14w Aqua Glow T8 in there. I am also going to throw a small powerhead in there for more flow. So here are the pics.... :D soory they sux, I need to work on getting my camera settings right.

well, I am plaining on adding some shrooms, and maybe some Ric's, but I want to upgrade my lighting first before adding the ric's. Right now though the zoa's look great. the pics don't due those Fire and Ice ones justice.

Nice Larry, but I can't wait to see your real tank up and running!
Is this your only running tank currently? it looks very clean.

yeah this was to kinda satisfy my obsession until the 120 is up.... Right now we have a 5g Hex that's a FW tank, and this 7g. The 120 is comming along though, MY RODI should be here this week, as well as the skimmer. I am also planning on ordering my return rump, and getting the plumbing completed.

thanks guys. Tim I will send you a pm.

I am going to paint the back of the tank this afternoon, and pickup a small power head for more flow at lunch time. I ordered a retrofit kit that has a single 32w PC 50/50 bulb. it will fit into the existing light's housing, so it will look completely stock.

Nice, I like the idea of having a second small tank anyway. With my 600 when I get frags they can be put into my 10 for observation and let them rest a few days before gluing to plugs. It has worked out great so far. If I remember correctly you are also doing a frag tank behind the scenes right? either way multiple smaller tanks are always good.
Anyway keep up the nice work,
Chris
