    Smile My 10 Gallon Nano

    Well I'm finally ready to post some pictures of the Nano. I plumbed the system last weekend and I was able to remove all pumps/heaters from the display tank. In the display tank I've got 15 LBS of Vanuatu rock and about 15 LBS of fine argonite. It's got a 1" bulkhead and a custom made overflow that I made out of acrylic. The two returns are plumbed to a SCWD for alternating current. The returns are 1/2" plumbing. I've got a Mag3 pumping the water back to the tank so I figure I've got about 200 GPH of flow. Current inhabitants are 5 blue legged hermit crabs, 5 astrea snails, 1 emerald crab, 1 green candy cane coral frag, pods and stometella snails. The sump is a 10G and I used acrylic and silicone to make baffles and divisions. I've got a 3-4 inch sand bed and about 4 LBS of Fiji(I think) live rock in the sump. The bulb you see is a 60W Home depot "grow bulb" and I kid you not my cheato is growing really fast under it! So finaly here are some pictures

    I'll keep that in mind for the next pictures. What I did for these is uploaded them to AC using photopost and then when filling out my message I clicked on the "IMG" button at the top and entered the pictures URL in the field. Thought that would work ... guess not

    Strange, yeah it should of..uses those tags anyways..Unless Ivan has some settings on his board to not make em display automatically since they reside on his server and he is hosting the pictures. Rather than wasting bandwitdh with pictures displayed automatically for people who read the threads but don't want to look at pics, display links and if people want to look at pics they will click on links...personally I like to look at the pictures rather reading hehe : Although you still have to read!
