    hey guys,

    i just bought this awesome little nano from galibor (thanks dude i owe you big time!) & want to use it as a nennie species tank (i.e. i want to keep only 1 nennie + some clowns)...

    lighting is 1 x 150W MH and it has 2 sumps (about 80l total volume)

    flow is handled by 2 x SCWD's each driven by a 3000 l/h pump so no worries about nennie soup! ;)

    any suggestions as to which nennie i should try get hold of? i'm looking for something with very nice color...

    thanks & cheers!

    they are not common but really pretty, with a big price tag, but worth the money.

    Guys - remember - this is a NANO.... even though Galibore had a sump, and a skimmer. The tank can only hold a very limited amount of marine fish.

    if the nennie is smaller than the mantis
    and if the nennie is at the top of the rocks and not at the bottom of the substrate.

    i'll try it and let you know, i'm also looking for a rose bta

    i have read that no fish and no cuc can be added, but ive done what the book told me not to do and it works. so with trile and error one will know what works and what won't work
