Hi all

Decided to build another pico. It will go onto the stand of my current pico and the current stock will be transfered to it.

The other pico will then become my majano tank.

Anyway here is the idea

Length 19cm height 20cm and depth 41 which include the filter I still need to build in. Almost like a room devider tank

Filter department will consist of some Live rock, chemi pure, heater and 350L/H pump.

Lighting will be 3W LEDS:

2x 6500k
2x 10 000k
4x royal blue
2x cool blue

Build the tank and water tested it.

Hi,here's a quick question just to satisfy my own curiosity. If I have a 500litre tank and a1400litre tank both running with skimmers etc,could I use some of the water from them for water changes if I were running a nano or pico tank with no skimmers as a frag tank? Obviuosly fresh water would be better,but I was just wondering.
