    Here is my nano.

    I first experimented with NSW from our coast with some shrimps and a little fish

    The fish I had in there(someone with an ID maybe?)

    (I must add that I did not know much about keeping SW:lol:)

    I then got a Yellow Watchmen Goby, a Blue-Legged Hermit Crab and two pieces of LR. Thanks Xtreme, you rock:yeahdude:(sorry, no pics of that setup)

    Then just the other day I bought myself a piece off Fiji LR and 4KG of Kenya LR:thumbup:

    Great!

    THis is me being VERY picky now....but why not hide the heater behind the liverock on the right? And then get a piece of blue (or black) perspex/plastic to put in the back of the tank so you dont see the pump and cables.

    459b is right Q, but go for blue, your tank will have more depth to it

    Your magnesium is a bit low, aim to get that up to between 1200 and 1300ppm. Also you need a test kit to measure your alkalinity, that is a vital parameter especially when keeping corals. Otherwise it looks like you're off to a good start. :thumbup1:
