We are just starting up a new nano and wondered where were some good sites or LFS to get some nice looking zoanthids.

Also, what is the opinion of using or not using Protein Skimmers for nanos...

Mr Aqua sometimes have some nice zoos. Or if you have the time, Keys Island up in Denver got some too.

IMO, skimming is not needed on a nano reef. Depending upon the type of tank it is, a skimmer may just take up room. I'd reccomend no skimmer and a weekly 10% water change, unless you decide to overstock with fish. Then you may need to consider a skimmer.

thanks COreefer...I think we may be leaning towards no skimmer...

But if you have the means, a skimmer won't hurt anything... I've got a EuroReef on my 40 and planning on using another EuroReef on my next nano (29 or less)... Be sure to check out www.nano-reef.com if you want to see some crazy nano's and mods. If you need any help with anything just PM me, I love small setups. :)
