    Hey guys

    After many years of toying with the idea I have finally taken the plunge into nano tanks. I have looked at building a nano and started with the tank a while ago, but after sitting down etc and working our prices for what I actually wanted it was better for me to just buy the buyo. glass tank will stil be completed but at a later stage.

    Tank has been running for a few weeks already so I will just let you guys know what I have done and yes I will post pics for those pics *****s out there....

    After getting the tank I took out the old skimmer, bio balls and ceramic bags, also removed the UV steriliser.

    Added Aragonite sugar fine live sand, BUYO WG-308 skimmer, live rock rubble, added Purigen and runnign seagel and polario dual action turbine.

    Have made a auto matic top up unit for my RO using 5 litre water bottle, airpump, tubing and electronic float switch.

    also please excuse the pics i was using my phones camera.

    Okay I have now moved the Polaris to the back of the tank and found it to be better than on the side.some more pics with added live rock and a some very small frags of corals. mainly a pin cushion, blue trumpet, red/purple shrooms, gorgonia, and some local zoos and a TINY clown. just got a green ric today and some star polyps. If anyone in the east london area is fragging please guys contact me. looking for some different zoos, maybe a pink birds nest, frogspawn for now.

    And very cool looking tank Seabass. Wanting to try and get as much colour into mine as possible, and i think the best way of doing it is through zoos.

    Got one or two frags I will be grabbing from my brother soon and will be adding a fish or two and a cleaner shrimp this coming weekend so very keen for it

    thanks mate

    Its not a blue frogspawn. Its a new branch that was growing under my other three branches. it has been happy in that spot for about 3 weeks now. opens nice and big, but its still white with green tips. Dont see any sign that it is in bad shape, or that it is getting its colours back, so just decided to leave him be.

    Yeah the red, white and green zoas were a very lucky find for me. got them from an indonesian shipment from my LFS, bought the rock before the zoas had even opened. now everyone is trying to get them off me :lol:

    Yeah very lucky with the frogspawn aswell as with the zoas.

    wont frag them for a while though, going to wait for them to totally engulf the rock they are on, only then will i start to think about fragging them

    Yeah will keep you in mind when they start to take over that rock.

    my tank is basically fully stocked now. just need my cleaner shrimp. then I will be happy. maybe one more nice coloured rick with some red/blue/orange in it.

    At the moment I have to Black Clowns, sixline wrasse and a Bi-Colour angel. All is looking well. Only plan on adding a cleaner shrimp, 2-3 more turbo snails and one more fish, but I will keep quiet with regards to what fish it will be until it is added. Just have to wait for it to arrive
