    Hey guys

    I know heres quite a few reefers on Masa that owns these awesome nanos.
    Thought, lets start a thread with full tank shots of these tanks only.
    Will give members who's considering this as starter tanks an indication of what could be
    done with these tanks. Also i know heres a number of guys hiding their jewels.
    So please everyone who has one or even had, participate.

    Lets make it a FTS, with some specs of livestock and filtration methods
    Fire away.......
