That is always a good idea! Having water on standby is something I always do. You just never know when something is going to happen.

Geeze, if I ever got into SW I thought it would be via a nano, but now I'm not so sure.

The thing with a nano vs a larger tank is things can foul quickly in a smaller water volume. Dilution is the solution to pollution. In other words a larger tank is going to give you more time to correct an issue. When I had my 5g nano setup I did PWCs almost every other day. I siphoned a gallon from my nano into the sump of my 72 and replaced it with water from my 72. So basically my 72 did the filtration for the 5g nano.
