    Hi all

    You may have seen That this weekend my TL550 split open on the bent glass. I had to get a nano up and running ASAP and bought a tank from a fellow reefer.

    As I saved the water rock and live stock I was able to build up the tank last night and its running and clearing up fine.

    I cant get the LS back into the nano as its now in my 1.8mt tank so I now have the opportunity to try something new .

    Nano is a 80 lt unit I have a solarmax LED light and a JNS skimmer in the sump.


    No LS in it at the moment as the movment of the sand might cause a spike (am I right)
