its not cheating a lot of ppl use an aquaclear 500 on the back for water movement and refugium. Its pretty cool. You see a lot more ingenuity on nanos because of space limitations. Electrobes, i wouldnt do one because they move around and can sting your corals. They're very picky about light also. More for advanced aquarists, even in a normal reef they can be a pita

Actually, I am thinking of a big ol' refugium myself... maybe the same size as the nano. I just haven't figured out all the plumbing yet. Lights were my first research project - now it's time to move onto refugiums and plumbing...

I've thought about the AC 500 too, but I am afraid it will be too much flow for a 10 gal... The AC300 has the impeller that you can change out to get less flow... But then you lose the water volume of the 500. Biotoxin - help! Any opinion on an AC 500 for a 10 gal nano?

My friend can burp loud enough to do this.

I thought I could burp loud but not like that.

Just thought I'd share

from what i hear you adjust the flow on it. Plus id rather have too much flow than not enough that was you dont have buildup of elements. Im a DIY person so id just build one that would make the flow be adequate. I just got done making a cpr bak pak for my 10g its an exact duplicate as a cpr but mine cost around 50$ for all of it

Silly Snap, thanks for sharing! 8O

My boyfriend (dear sweet gentle boy that he is) chugs diet coke with the express purpose of trying to frighten me, the fish, the cat, the dog and every other living creature within a 5 mile radius. I must say that phrase 10 times a day!

I think I'm going to have to put the English translation in my signature now so people know what the heck we're talking about...

Sorry about the hijacked thread An!

I am in pretty much agreement with everything said here.

I would be better if you could have a sump/fuge plumbed into your nano. The additional water volume will give you a bigger margin of error since small tanks can be very hard to keep important parameters in check.

OK possum - I included the English translation in my signature. Now the whole world will know that my BF is an Italian burping fiend!
