The Nano Reefs DIY thread...

It was recommended a while back that we have a sticky thread for DIY projects that are geared to smaller tanks. Please post links to threads on RC that are good DIY projects for Nanos.

However we don't want to make people wade through a long thread to find the DIY so if you know of of a good DIY project in a long thread ask the person to make a seperate thread for the DIY and add a link to this thread.

If it's a good DIY yes please post links. My RC reference was meant to include links anywhere on RC, not just the nano forum. However a good diy is a good diy no matter where we find it....

I once saw a link to a website that had nothing but nano upgrade parts. Mainly just light upgrades. Anyone have that site?
I have searched around, but couldnt find it.
(not the jbjlighting.com site)
