    Hey all!

    New fish keepers!

    (I have a 2.5G goldfish tank, yes I know its way way way way too small but thats what I have now. and a 40G semi-aggressive tank which is my 1st real project!)

    So I'm obviously addicted and wanted to know what is a nano-reef!

    They seem so cool!

    I go to college, so my little brother takes care of my fish for the most part (I havn't parted with my 40G yet so we'll see how that goes) but I deff. would be interested in setting-up one of these awesome things in my 2.5G tank! (Again, I gotta make a move with these gfs, they really are going to struggle in the 2.5G)

    So I saw someone here has a really awesome 2.5, and even saw a 5G, so why can't I do the same?!?


    Anyway...

    Again, what is a nano-reef? Is it just coral, or is there fish/animals in there too? What do I need to set up one? And how would I set one up?

    thanks all!
    RIP Shark Bait, my Red Tail Shark :(

    It can be many different things, based on what like and what can live in a 2.5 gallon tank

    I would suggest starting by getting a goof book about SW set-ups and reading the stickies in the SW section here on the forum

    I would not suggest such a small tank for your first SW set-up. With any Marine tank, bigger is much better (and much easier)
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    nano means small,reef means it is a tank with corals. Quite simply a small coral tank.I suggest much research.

    I would suggest rather than venturing off into a nano tank, to first find something proper for the goldfish. Taking care of what you already have just makes more sense to me rather than investing in another tank.
