    Who got the oldest setup still running? Nano and Pico. Anything less than 150L. That includes all the TL550 setups as well.

    Just a question. A lot of times guys says that you will upgrade rather quickly from a nano to something bigger.

    So, to all the "old" nano reefers. How old are your setups?

    Mine is still running had a few issues and haven't posted anything on it lately.
    Been running for 2 years and 7 months now.
    Will post some new pic soon, now that my lighting is fixed, and the crab is gone.

    On Saturday, my brother paged through the Fishkeeper magazine, March April 2013 edition. In there page 30 is the Tank of the Month of Arrie. Pity he sold the system shortly after receiving TOTM.

    Question then popped up, how long do guys run their Nano tanks. That turned to what is the oldest nano systems that is still around and running. Do not need to be show tanks like Arrie's, but a nano that is still up?

    So, to the older setups, come on, show the new guys that you can have fun with a smaller setup.

    My system will be exactly 2 years, 5 months on Wednesday...
    Some corals had to be swapped out when they outgrew my system, but the main inhabitants (coral-wise ) still flourish.

    Yes, the system had its up's and down's, but is still a system I enjoy on a daily basis.
