    It's alot of work. I think if I had an ATO it would have been a little easier. But I am just too busy with 5 classes, work and a new baby.
    I was starting to grow some coraline algae in there too. I don't even have that stuff in my 72. But I was also growing red slime, green hair algae and everything else. I increase my clean up crew and it helped some.

    I put the six line wrasse,extreme misbar clown in my 72 along with all all the coral and rock. I am now using the HOB skimmer rated for 65 gallons on my 72. I didn't have a skimmer before, just a algae scrubber that I am still trying to get full green hair algae growth.

    ***No fish or corals were harmed during this tank set up*************

    That sounds disappointing, and yet at the same time, a wise choice.

    Yeah, I've been so busy to even make the switch. I had big hopes for my nano. I bought all things to build a custom stand, custiom drilled overflow etc. However the pump I was going to use is allot quieter than the one I currently had on my 72.

    When planning the nano, there are so many options to go with. Unless you are 100% dedicated, idk how one could have a pristine nano, unless money wasn't issue.... LOL

    Jeff, it could be a piece of cake if you had an ATO set up. But even now I'm finally learning the importance of good husbandry on my 72 gallon. I just invested another thousand on lights, ATO, skimmer, RO/DI. Things aren't cheap.....
