Started this tank January 2019. Iíve always loved following aquarium builds so I thought Iíd post mine for people to enjoy.
I used to have a 72 gallon mixed reef and it took over my life and my wallet. I took a break after I sold it and decided to go the nano route with minimal equipment and keep it as budget friendly as possible. It has worked out surprisingly well.
Here is the tank today:
And here is how it started...
20 gallon long aquarium
My old Current USA light
I bought my cleanup crew off Kijiji from a guy who was shutting down his tank and he cave me his last two corals. I didnít expect them to survive the end of my cycle but a year later and the chalice is thriving... the forest fire digi is still struggling
Once the cycle finished I added a black and white ocellaris clown and added another Current USA LED
light. Added a few of the easiest corals I could find (gsp, Kenya trees, blue palys and some macro algae)
Added a sub-zero frostbite clownfish
