proof you don't need a big tank to have a beautiful aquarium

good things come in small packages.
10 gallon tank

thats amazing..
as for the age of the setup heres a quote from the site..
Quote:
I started this tank 6 months ago; I only wanted a cheap reef on my desk at work, the key word here being "cheap." I was determined to make a low cost setup that I could enjoy, without sinking much money into it..

First line of the article says it's been up for 6 months. The guy used LR and LS from his existing 180 gal tank.

It is a beautiful tank. I'd like to see it a year from now. Six months is still very new IMO. Softies and sps in such a small tank isn't something I'd attempt but it's a nice mix of colors.
