    I have a 10 gal sitting here and would like to try a nano tank. Is there a list of equipment that I could look at or could someone give me a list? Thanks Dean.

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Here's what I ran on my 10g when I had it running.

    Lighting:
    4x24w T5HO

    Flow:
    Koralia 1 (equivalent now to the Koralia Nano)
    Maxi Jet 1200 (pump on my skimmer)

    Skimmer:
    CPR BakPak

    While a skimmer isn't necessary on a tank this small, it surely can't hurt. Other than improving water quality and adding more flow, the skimmer also adds volume that can make a difference to a tank this small(about 10% of the total volume of the tank).

    You surely won't regret researching and reading up on saltwater. Its so easy to waste a LOT of money, and time, and fishy lives by trying to do things too cheaply, without some foresight. And there's so many methods and so much equipment out there - you really do need to get a handle on the basics yourself, and then get help on the details and gaps you can't quite understand once you decide where you're going.

    Saltwater is quite a different - but awesome - kettle of fish! (lol)

    Most of us of AC, I think, lean to live rock filtration, rather than a power filter, so you might want to read up/factor that in as well. Live rock can be quite a cost, unless you are prepared to take the time to allow for seeding dead rock.

    I know next to nothing about salt, but I know a buddy of mine had pretty good luck setting up a nano using this forum as a resource: http://www.nano-reef.com/forums. No slight meant to the reefers here, but the more info the better. :)

    That's what I was wondering about using live rock instead of a power filter. I'm going to a lfs in the next town over tomorrow that only deals in salt water and has a lot of dif coral, fish they sell and everything to do with salt water. The biggest thing i'm trying to figure out is all the equipment that I need since i'm going to use live rock and live sand.
