    could anyone advise at what size do you go from nano to a normal system, or are there other considerations

    I dont have that much experience but from what I know, anything above 120L or so is a full sized system, or better said, anything under 120L is a nano. I'm currently running a nano with a sump at the back that is just over 100L total volume. I dont know of any other considerations that would define a "normal" system.

    In my opinion anything around a 100 - 150 l is a good starting point. But that depends on your budget and space as well as what you are trying to achieve.

    I started of with a 37l and it is very Labour intensive and if something went wrong it would go wrong fast. Got myself a tl550. Around 130l and it a dream to keap every thing stable

    Hi

    130l up...I ran a 60cm x 60cm (180l) for years and I was real easy to maintain.
