Yeah, I'm not messing with this tank. No light upgrades or skimmers or anything fancy. LOL

i still have a 125g reef to deal with by the years end. So I'm officially on a "budget". eewww I hate that word.

It's good for your view
Looks nice. Personally I liked the first setup better.. but you can't go wrong with either one!

Great setup!!

There is a book I have that has a bunch of different scapes that will work for a nano. Yours is like the cove one in the first pic but they don't have anything for this one. I do like it, but it may be better if you added a few pieces around it to open it up IMO. But its your tank and of you like it, do it!

Personally, I think the 1st has a more natural cave like appearance...but I do like this one a lot too! You'll be able to see what they are doin in there! I can't wait to see fish in this bad boy! I think it will take it to a whole new level!

Thanks! I think I'll try again tomorrow, the more I look at it the more it looks planned. I want haphazard and natural.

My first stop on shopping is cuc. When should i add them? I have no readings on my tests but there is 15lbs of LR in there and I see lots of pods moving around so it's gotta be safe right?
