    Hi guys

    As some might know i have packed up my TL550 due to the purchase of my first home etc etc. Sad to say the deal ended sour and im sitting with no tank and no home.
    I could kick myself for reacting to fast with packing up my pride and joy. Anyway life goes on and ive decided while house hunting again, im setting up a little 30L nano just to keep me busy as i just cannot stay away from this hobby.

    So here goes...
    Collected tank from a fellow "retired" reefer who might be on his way back aswell:p and who was so kind to collect the tank for me from the seller in Town. Thanks @STC-1000
    Received a cupboard from my brother thats perfect for the tank.
    I have no idea what I'll be doing with this tank but the ideas will come as i go along.

    Some pics to follow....

    You guys are setting the bar high. Placing me under pressure hey:p Will do my best and thanks for the positive comments.

    Boyu MT308A. Basically same like the MT30 Just slightly bigger.

    3 small chambers with the usual sponge and bioballs. No skimmer. Its like a mini TL550.

    Thanks. I know everyone loves pics so there will be plenty:thumbup:

    Finally collected some dry rock. Thanks @4age
    Did a mock scape and quite happy with results as theres not much that can be done in this little tank.
    Went for a bonsai scape. Now just need some putty to stick them together and ready to fill.
    Will probably only do that in few weeks time. Still wanna do some minor mods before the tank gets wet.
