Has anyone made a nano tank with an Aqueon Mini Bow 1 gallon aquarium before? I have one these tanks and was wondering if it would be feasible to make it a saltwater nano tank. If so, what kind of lighting and filtration would you recommend.

This is what they look like: http://www.petco.com/product/114818/Aqueon-Double-Sided-Blue-Mini-Bow-Desktop-Aquarium-Kit.aspx

If I were you I would go to wal-mart and get a 3 gallon cube or at least look for something in the 3 gallon area. the one at walmart is 30 comes with a leds not good enough for coral but could hold a diy fixture or could be modded. Then io would go to a lfs pet store and get a aquaclear or small hob and a heater that will fit inside it. I wouldn't go smaller than 3 gallons personally

Okay, thanks for the advice. I was just trying to figure out something useful for the 1 gallon that I already own though. I guess I will just leave it as a fresh water tank.
