Thread: Nano Reef tank

  1. Question Nano Reef tank


    0 Not allowed!
    I really want to set up a nano reef tank, but I have never done anything with saltwater before. I want to use my ten gallon and make it into a nano reef, is that possible?

    It certainly is possible

    Marine set-ups that small can be a pain in the back side to keep stable, but as long as you are willing to do your homework before setting it up you should be OK

    I would, however, recommend a larger sized tank for your first marine aquarium only due to the fact the larger water volume is far more forgiving should you make a mistake.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Thank you for the advice :). I am going to research a lot for sure!

    I started out with a biocube 14 and moved up to a 37 gallon tank. I can't begin to tell you how much easier it had been to maintain the larger tank. With the smaller tank I was constantly monitoring and fighting minor (and major) changes in water quality. This larger tank has required very little attention to the water quality.
