    well, saw this nano from a local person for sale and i have seen her other tanks and stopped by to take a look at it and feel in love with it. she did such an awesome job on this nano which came out absolutely beautifully. i never thought i would like a small tank but this one has a change of heart. here are some pics of her true masterpiece.

    moving the tank was easier than a water change on the bigger tank. lol all i did was scoop out 15-20 cups of water into a 5g bucket then place all the rock and coral into the bucket and moved it to the car. then picked up the tank with 3-4" of water and sand and placed into the car. got everything else into the car and brought her to the new house. and setting back up was a breeze. it was harder getting the mount for the light then the whole move. lol
    equipment is just a koralia pico in the right top corner and a aquaclear 20 with brs carbon and gfo. plan on doing the same maintenance routine which was a gallon water change weekly and cleaning the bag of carbon and gfo while replacing with the recommended amount which is 1 tbsp of carbon and gfo.

    I have a larger tank as well , but for some reason I cant seem to pull myself away from the nano/pico world. Maybe I enjoy the stress & torture that can easily come with smaller tanks.
