Gotta hand it to you nano guys... I tried a 10g reef years ago in college and they are much more difficult than large systems. A lot more room for error I suppose, I'm sure my super limited budget had something to do with it back then as well. Lol

Yeah, lots of people told me nanos (and picos) were a lot harder to maintain than larger tanks, but since my 3 gal was my first tank I can't really compare it in terms of difficulty to larger tanks. Not many problems so far, or anything that couldn't be fixed with a few big WCs. That's another thing, in small tanks big WCs aren't a problem.

Come to think of it, if big tanks really are that much easier a much bigger tank should be a breeze lol

The issue is if there is a change it is magnified in smaller systems. Even just a little evaporation will raise the salinity a lot. Big tanks have their challenges also, for one it takes bigger quantities to make small changes so dealing with nuisance algae can be a huge pain.

Very pretty tank. Gives me something to hope for. Did a 75 gallon FOWLR for a while and got bored. Setting up a 29 gallon right now and looking for inspiration
