A question.

If I were to get the innovative Marine nano 8 what other accessories would I need in the tank?

If you wanted corals then I would strongly suggest another light, if it comes with that 4watt led one. Other than that, maybe a heater but the filtration system is complete already.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

A mini sump is good to have too but not needed in smaller tanks.

Small power head maybe, other than that nuvos are pretty much plug and play (other than lighting, agree with Carey there)

The 8 gallon comes with an 8 watt lighting system.

The stock light isnt enough for most corals. My best friend has the nuvo 16 and it came with two of those lights and she had trouble keeping even zooas. She just bought a marine orbit led fixture and her tank looks amazing! All the corals have come to life, such a drastic improvement.
