    Hi Guys

    Newbie to marine have kept multiple tropical tanks for ages, moved to centurion a while ago and decided it's time I went marine.

    I know nanos are not great for beginners but space requirements that's all that I can have.

    Which of the two would you take I've got options on both, the Jebo is running with only live rocks and sand whereas the boyu has live rock coral live sand and livestock

    Which would you guys say is the better tank between the two taking away the livestock etc from the equation in terms of quality

    Regards

    Hi

    I would suggest the bigger tank. In the long run, you can do more.

    Parameters are harder to control in a nano unless you want a fish only tank with no corals.

    Patience is the name of the game in marine unlike tropical.

    Unfortunately space is an issue both tanks are already running and have existing coral and livestock, the Jebo will have the coral and livestock removed but will come with live rock and sand. The boyu will come with live rock and sand and the corals and livestock

    Price likely plays a role..?

    But depending, bigger will often be the better choice

    Oh o misread. Boyu 450TL, not 450 liters.

    Then it depends on what Jebo it is, since both are about the same volume.

    If both tanks are similar in terms of filter compartments, lighting, condition, etc, go for the option with the most extras.

    The Boyu has:
    Tank, light, wavemaker, heaters, skimmer, zoas, xenia, devils finger, Kenya tree, 2 clowns and a shrimp won't add more fish or coral, obviously live rock and sand.
    4k

    Jebo
    Tank as from supplier, lights heater filters live rock and sand
    1k

    The 450 does, its where the skimmer, heater etc goes. Its designed for marines, the Jebo look like it was made for goldfish.

    So you suggest the Boyu as the better option, also I've noticed it's better supported in this country also on the forums from my lurking over the past month

    If that Boyu is in a good condition with everything working it looks like a good deal to me.
    (Bear in mind that I have just started with marine and everything I know is from research, not experience)
