What skimmer if any does everyone run on their nano's? Post some pictures and system specs of tanks they are running on.
I will start.
1. Tank size. (34gallon rsm130)
2. 3 fish. 2X clowns and a flame hawk
3. Skimmer (modded deltec mce600) cleaned and emptied daily.
4. Once a day feedings of omega flakes. 3X per week frozen mysis.
Here is the tank http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y430/fish4life28/C92B7CE4-30D5-4EBC-97A3-12E191DCDBB6_zpsjckrtxuw.jpg (http://s1274.photobucket.com/user/fish4life28/media/C92B7CE4-30D5-4EBC-97A3-12E191DCDBB6_zpsjckrtxuw.jpg.html)
Here is 1 day of nog http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y430/fish4life28/61B93B72-23FC-4158-B491-409ECB51E406_zps0dsa44kp.jpg (http://s1274.photobucket.com/user/fish4life28/media/61B93B72-23FC-4158-B491-409ECB51E406_zps0dsa44kp.jpg.html)
And another pic with tape measure for size reference http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y430/fish4life28/82C0E4B9-0F93-4BE8-AB37-60E595E9F94E_zpsvwn3mzlt.jpg (http://s1274.photobucket.com/user/fish4life28/media/82C0E4B9-0F93-4BE8-AB37-60E595E9F94E_zpsvwn3mzlt.jpg.html)
Pretty dark nastiness coming out of there

Definitely some impressive skimmate, but I wouldn't expect any less from an MCE600 :)

1. Tank size. (29 gallon biocube)
2. 5 fish. 2X clowns, flame angel, tailspot blenny, and geometric hawkfish; Tons of coral
3. Skimmer (Stock AquaMaxx WS-1) cleaned and emptied every 2-3 days.
4. Every other day about a cube worth of mysis

And the skimmer (with about 3 days skimmate in it). You can tell it's really working, because it smells like skimmer (something I haven't experienced since I had a huge Euro-reef in my 120g SPS tank).

Nice amount of nog there. Love your tank lots of sps. Mine is still pretty young but am headed the mainly sps route.
My wife tries to make me empty the skimmer when nobody is home lol smells the same as my alpha 170 did on my old 120. Had the deltec in the closet so figured what the heck might as well try it on the rsm.

Nice looking tanks! I have a 29 biocube with the Innovative Marine SkimMate skimmer that I used to use on my Nuvo. Works great! I'll post pics later when I get home.

I have much 20 long build total gallons about 28 gallons.

I run a eshopps sc120

Feed a pinch of pellets every day and mysis flood feeding once a week.

This skim is from the last few days.

Looks like a nice little unit on your 20. I want a sump again so bad but the wife won't let me. Last tank drained 100 gallons of water in the floor when the power went out. Was my fault, should have replaced the check valve more. So really ignorance on my part lost me being able to have a sump lol

Oh man, sorry to hear that! You should never be reliant on a check valve if possible! I guess lessons learned.... I'm glad you're still in the hobby though. I have nightmares of a tank of any size breaking or leaking and draining into my home (not house :( ).

One of my reefing friends/mentors had the side of his 375g tank fall off.... while a fully-running stocked, beautiful reef.... ugh! nightmares!
