I get nano, but what makes it a picco tank? No fish?

Pico tanks are usually 5 gallons and under.

+1 to that.

I believe when it comes to SW, Pico can refer to 10g and below. I've even seen 20g referred to as Pico. I generally draw the line as 10+ to 29 as nano and 10 and below as Pico.

It's funny to note the comparison to Fresh. Where 10 is pretty standard!

Ya but think about the largest lakes compared to the smallest oceans lol. It's absolutely amazing that we can even keep "pico" reefs if you ask me haha
