    Well this is the start of my Juwel nano.

    120 liters.
    Waterproof T - 5 lights.
    Machein joined with black silicone.
    Resessed canopy for no drip lines.
    Built in filter and heater.
    SunSun pumps are an extra.

    Ok...
    So i put about 8 kgs of mature kenyan liverock in and waited about a month before introducing any thing.

    Now to go against the flow , i put in my Bubble tip anamone in first. ( in at least 4 of my previous tanks the anamone has gone in first, its the way i do it and it works for me. )





    a month after set up - the bubble tip anamone and 2 x cleaners go in.

    A month after the anamone - the royal gramma , and a colt tree goes in.( & a zenia frag )

    A month later the yellow tang and tube worm goes in.

    Up to date this tank hasnt had a water change yet, i have put in Red sea Buff and magnesium , but its definatly time for a change about now.



    So this is 3 months old and plenty to go, before its up to Nano standerds that have been posted on this site.

    Tank is a bit small for a tang dude. So unless you are going to upgrade in the future, your tank is going to become way too small for him.

    Nice tank. And beautiful kids too. Btw, It is one seriously big bottle in the right hand corner behind the baby. Suppose they do not get thirsty at night after one of those....lol

    I am Chuffed !

    Used a new product on my nano Tonight for the first time, and its great to see things looking better when you put in supliments.

    I got Nano complete: does P.H and Alk.
    and
    All in one Master Supplements : 10 ml per 120 liters per week.

    also got Coraline algea accelarator ( havnt used it yet though )

    Colt responded realy well.

    P.s
    Flame angels , purple fire fish , allsorts of tangs and nennies are in @
    Perky - Diep river.

    I got these supliments to try and let them know what i think, probebly will want more , going to post some pics of the product tomorrow , cause theyve got a anti whitespot whitch is reef safe aswell, that i dont want to test, but looks gr8.
