    Hi all

    I just started up a little pic for the wife.

    Skimz ibox nano.

    The tank is 9.5l and im running the following:
    1. Small piece of live rock
    2. About 4 cups of aragonite.
    3. 1st chamber I'm running a few pieces of live rock, Orca bio cubes and some filter floss.
    2nd chamber is the skimmer and the return pump.
    4. Standard led lights


    The tank has been running for a few days now.


    Not sure what I'm going to stock in it as yet.
    The wife wants to small little fish in there. Not sure for i'm going to get that done as that will be pushing it.

    Any ideas on what fish i can put in there?

    Would like feed back from other members if they running the same tank and what are their views please.

    Your best bet would be to speak to your LFS and ask them to bring one in for you in one of the shipments.

    Either speak to your LFS or keep checking until you find one, I have seen all but the green banded goby at shops in gauteng.
