    Would a small planktonkreisel count as a nano? Just an idea.

    Yeah but I don't know how many votes you will get for it :)

    Show us a pic of your tank Ross, are you measuring up to the water level or the full tank/s dimensions?

    There are a lot of tanks out being called nano's. Some with chillers, calcium reactors etc. These in my view are not nano's.
    They are full blown marine tanks.

    Why should the addition of a calcium reactor or chiller mean a nano tank is no longer a nano tank?

    I think for the sake of making the completion more interesting and allowing more people to enter, don’t limit the tank size to 100 liters and under. 150 liters with a possible 200 liters total including sumps, fuges ect. opens up the door considerably and yet is still in the small tanks category.
    If people want to be technical/picky, then change the competition name to Small Tank Competition or something similar. Just a thought.
