    Nice looking tank.

    But that regal wont survive in that tank, its too small. It needs a minimum of 1.2m because they get pretty big.;)

    nice looking setup but the tang wont survive. Gonna get stressed due to insufficiant swimming space. Stressed fish gets sick. Swop it for something smaller thats suited for a nano. You get nice looking fish. Setup looks cool. Did you cut the hood to fit skimmer?

    Yes, i got alot of stick from alot of people for the regal, wating my lfs to get stock so i can swop it for an appropriate size.

    dont swop it for another tang. No matter how small they will grow and you dont want to swop for a smaller size every few months. If you realll want to keep tangs. Upgradeto a bigger system:lol:. Even a small tang will get stressed. do some research and add fish suitable for your nano . There some beautigull small fish out there. :yeahdude:

    Wow the tanks looks amazing! How old is the nano, cause I see you have a nennie in there. It must be at least 9 months old for it to be able to keep a nennie and the small tank is to small for the carpet. It will quickly outgrow the tank. Is the big tank also yours?

    Annoying lol and i thought my name was original!! The nennie was from my previous tank , fatal mistake by putting it into this tank with a carpet , chemical warfare started and by the time i pulled it out it was to late. Carpets do grow very fast especially if u supplment its diet, but i dont! The other tank on top is not mine....how i do wish:(

    Nice Tank, and the guys are right about the space of the tang....... you do not need to open different threads for your setup. It is confusing and you'll eventually work triple time just to keep up on all three, as all three are of the same topic- just a tip ;)
