    I've had a sudden interest in SW fish and Nano tanks and i had a 5 gal hex that i had lying around and i thought, hey, i might be able to do a SW nano tank.

    I'm really going to be devoted to this tank, doing whatever i can to get it right.

    Tell me EVERYTHING! lol

    You'll have to do your own research for the most part, but what I can tell you is that you most likely can't keep any fish. I'm not quite experienced with SW but I do remember my options with a 10g were very limited, and you definitely wouldn't want to keep any fish in a 5g.

    What I'd recommend is some live rocks and inverts. Also note that it'll be very hard to maintain such a small tank.

    With such a small tank, There really is not a single fish that would live in there. The only thing i could mentions in live rock with some non coral eating hermit crabs and shrimps. It would like nice with hermits in there. NON-THE-LESS it wil lbe very hard to maintain a stable enviorment. There is way to little water for something to mess up or the entire thing will mess up. Would look nice but I would never attempt something so tiny better off with a 10 or bigger.

    my two favorites in my life.
