so im almost done cycling my 10 gallon tank. im going to probably do a par38 led bulb for lighting. For now im using a hob filter that i had lying around but ill just use natural once its established. I already have a 60 gallon reef doing well so i thought id take a shot at a nano.



jus put sand in so its cloudy

Nano's are kind of tricky, with that bulb I would suggest a few low light easy care corals, like Zoa's & mushrooms, maybe a few Ricordia mushrooms, Toadstool leather & maybe later on an Open Brain coral on the sand bed. 1 fish of your choice, obviously medium-small to small. It is very hard to keep water quality high in such a small volume of water if you push the limit of your Bio-Load. Again, enjoy.

Get another Par38 over that tank and you can keep anything you want coralwise. One of them probably doesn't have that great a spread, but you could keep some SPS in the middle right under the light.

Enjoy, I miss my nano!

There you go, someone who has had experience & has kept SPS in a 10g. I do know this, water quality is the key with a Nano Reef.
