Let's not get this thread closed lol. I wanna see this through and hope to see a wonderful saltwater tank from our friend.

I can add that patience is KEY here. So just take your time and ask lots and lots of questions and do a lot of research it will pay off in the end.

I agree. But if you want to knock out a lot of confusion I would get a Red Sea Max tank, probably the one built for SPS reefs. I only say this b/c I seen you were talking about all in ones earlier. Nu-nu has the RSM 66 gallon tank.

They are pricy but extremely nice. But you do lack some customization as with any all in one set-up. I believe they are coming out with a beer version of these also or just came out with one but not 100%

Here's some pics of my friends 10 gallon with 2 Par30 lights. Just to give you an idea what can be done with a small tank if done right and if you maintain it well.


Water changes every week, no skimmer. He does have a mini HOB fuge made out of a AC110.


His stock is 1 clown and that's it. He does have inverts. Snails, hermits and a cleaner shrimp.

I happen to think it looks good for a 10 gallon.
