The size that a tank has to be to be classified nano is kind of up for debate all over the internet.

Some say 20 gal or smaller others say 10 gal or smaller and others say 29 gal or smaller or 15 gal or smaller.

The real limit of what is or is not a nano is less important than knowing that nano = small tank.

Freshwater folks might call a 20 gal a large system but us salty folk usually think of a 20 gal as a moderatly small system.

Remember dont tap the glass, your fish will think you're an idiot -Anonymous mother

Not to nitpik but anemones are not reef animals. We just seem to like them enough to put them in the mix.

Anemones are, in fact, animals.
