Send a message via MSN to mr_X
all depends on the lighting. you can go to nano tuners and find an upgrade or just stick with lps and softies. what were you thinking of adding?

You should have no problem growing those corals in your nano cube

Yea i could have blastos, acans, hammers, torches, leathers, favias. There are many options when it comes to what u can put in a nano. Try to stay away from SPS corals. Most important is to keep the lens that covers the lights clean and change the bulbs when it is nec. Ofcourse also keeping up with adding ur chemicals to give the corals the nutrients they need.

Small tank for xenia IMO. Spreads quickly and not a lot of real estate to acccomodate.
