Hey guys.. After coming back from Thailand scuba diving for 3 Months, I am now tempted to set up a nano reef to bring a piece of the wonders of the underwater world to life in my room!
I am 99% of a newbie to salt water aquariums and have only kept tropical/cold water tanks for about 10 years (This is part of my reason to try something new).
What is the perfect size tank for a nano? 5 gal
? 10 gal
What kind of filter do I need?
Do I need any powerheads?
What are easy corals to keep? Soft? Hard?
What kind of life can I keep in it? I understand for most fish it will be too small, so are Shrimps ok? I love the look and behavior of Boxer Shrimp! Which I saw in the wild so would be extra cool to keep one!
Any other help would be very much welcomed! Plus pictures of your nano reefs if you have any?
