    It is a 20L, Really small. We have a Skimz SH1 Internal Protein Skimmer.
    works really we with this tanks and can handle up to a 200L tank if needed.

    Hi PhoenixRed I am new to the hobby and I really like the nano tank you have. Would you suggest I start with a tank like yours? I stay in Greenstone so if you could tell me where I could get a tank like that around here I would greatly appreciate it.

    Good luck with your tank

    Hi Wizard,

    The light came standard with the tank. If I'm reading the hiroglyphics on the lamp correctly its a 'JBD'? LED Clip-on light.

    Hey Dre,

    We stay pretty close to you then. Its best to read up on the type of tank you want to start as it boils down to personal preference. I've read quite a few posts where larger tanks are suggested for beginners as they're more forgiving. We personally chose the nano tank due to space contraints - but obviously we're also very new to the hobby.

    You can check out Wild on Pets at Greenstone Crescent by the Checkers. That's where we bought our tank. Staff are really helpful
