    @dallasg, bud do you realise what you have done? I was summarily called by @GTH and given orders that I should do some scaping "immediately!"

    Some of them are borderline not Nano tanks. 140L display and then an extra sump. Total volume easily 200L

    But yes, they are very nice tanks. See 2 of them runs on Radions LEDs, the one got the Pro over the display. Would have thought that on such shallow tanks that light would be excessive. And could burn the corals. More likely they slowly ramped up the light intensity. But anyway, very nice tanks.

    You can run them at a lower setting @RiaanP, just installed one over @GTH's nano and it's set at 50%

    I do understand that.
    For MASA the split is under 130
    The one nano got 2* MP10 and another MP40, that some serious flow. The substrate is not too fine, but it does not look like he got sand storms either. Wonder what the setting is on the pumps.

    well, that little system of Toolboysa is something else. Got more equipment. Nice setup.
    @Toolboysa, what was the Vortech pumps set to? About what percentage power setting?

    I didn't realise that other forums followed MASA's recommendations? I suppose it's very relative.

    They do not need to. But I can hardly call a display of 150L a nano.
    Plus then add a sump.

    In what group do you place a 200L system?
