    Hey Vette,

    I just saw your latest pics of the nano. It's looking great!

    The only eyesore is that powerhead. Could you not use some Mini-jets in there? It would look so much better, you could have them on opposing ends, and even have them on a wavemaker to create random movement...

    I think you have done an excellent job there.Really sharp. What will you put in it? some Gobi's? the little Catalina Gobi's are nice. Quick questions ... how will you manage algae cleaning and heat build up from the powr head?

    The power head is just temperary while the tank cycles a bit longer. Catalina Gobi's are one of my choices,,,,a cleaner type shrimp....some small frags...I still have to tinker with the lighting.......but I should have things in by around next week...

    Catalina gobies don't fare well in reef-tank temperatures. They prefer cooler water.

    Hey vette68! That is so cool! I am a little curious however about the actual size. Next time you take a picture, put a common item next to it, like a can of drink or something just for comparison! Thanks. BTW, I love the stand you created for it.
