I have a 12gal nano-reef and love it. I am thinking of putting a 6gal in my new born son's nursery.

I don't think it's really hard. As long as you have the money, time, and are into it then itll be "easy".

Try the 30 instead. itll save you the time and money of buying another bigger tank in the future and you'll be able to keep more fish in it.

I also have a 12 gallon cube! LOVE IT!!! More fun than a big tank ... in my opinion. The only downfall is once your to that limit there is not much else you can do with them except sitback and watch the growth.

We do need a Nano section, don't we?

yours sounds quite similar to mine, topic starter (not even gonna attempt that mouthfull of a screename). i have a pair of percs in a 15 gallon. (more details in my sig)


i love it. i don't think it's too difficult. but it's definitely a challenge and a lot of fun. a lot of work, as well.

wow, thats pretty....what kind of hood/light is that? are those real plants?? i would love corals in mine, dont have any right now, waiting for the tank to be more mature (over 1 year). only about 5 months to go. i dont think its hard at all. the biggest thing with mine is the evaporation, but thats not so hard to keep up with. i love it.

thanks. it's a coralife 20" 96 watt 50/50 aqualight. high quality light strip. i just wish i could control the actinics independently like the longer aqualights. and yeah they're real plants. it's a macro algae called Caulerpa Prolifera. my biggest problem is patience! but everything seems to be going good so far, despite some efforts to rush things.

I have a 10g and I love it (all the fish I have gotten dont though lol), ANyways all my water params seem to be good and stable. Just make sure you give a little time everyday to make sure its ok. You have less error room with the small tanks. Oh and this was my first SW tank

And one of the things to also consider is that your fish selection becomes very limited around that size tank.
