Hi all

Hi everyone,

I am working on setting up a 3 gal pico reef this winter break, so I thought I would join this forum that I have already learned so much from. I will be starting a thread and will probably have a few questions. I can't wait to get started!

I have run many freshwater tanks in the past, but I only have 10 gallon running currently. I have been doing much research into saltwater, and am getting ready for my marine tank. This forum looks like great place to start!

A 3 gallon is tough with evaporation and be aware that really no fish can go in there. It is definitely possible but you may want to get your feet wet with a little larger tank first.

Thanks bribo, I understand the challenge of keeping such a small tank (water params, salinity and such), and I am only planning on keeping a few soft corals and shrimp. I was recommended towards a few green star polyps at my LFS, and that's pretty much all I'm planning on for now. I am a newbie to saltwater though, and am happy to hear any suggestions.

This will be my first saltwater tank, so I'm taking it really slow, and I'm really just using this tank to become accustomed to nano reefing, without investing in any serious livestock or equipment (sorry for the run on sentence :P)
