    Hey guys not new to the forum, had a reef which experienced complete life loss after an electricity issue after moving into my new house about a year ago.

    Actually have the tank for sale if anyone is interested.

    Am looking at getting an all in one nano this time around for my home office, any recommendations?

    Keen to have a look around and see what's new after a year of being out of the hobby

    Aquaria have various sized all in one tanks, Red Sea also but they are much more expensive. Not sure if there are any others.
    Welcome back. :)

    Welcome back - I too am returning after some absence, and will be resurrecting my RSM 130d, with a sump this time. My 2 cents - get/build a custom nano cube with stand, overflow and sump - better than any AIO. In terms of new AIO's on the market, I have liked the Nuvo Nano range - good accessories - rimless design. Fluval has also recently launched a new reef nano series, with a peninsula style design - interesting.

    Thanks guys. @Wizard$ this time around I'm looking for less effort involved, plus I forgot to mention I want the Nano to sit on a desk so sump isn't an option.

    Where can I find these new Nano's you guys are talking about ? I'm based in Table View Cape Town.

    Thanks

    Tunze, not sure if they will ship - http://www.marineaquariumsa.com/threads/newtunze-nano-aquarium-internal-sump.64499/
    Aquaria - they can ship to you - http://www.marineaquariumsa.com/threads/aquaria-specials-thread.34596/page-16

    For Cape Town you could try one of these guys:
    Reef Aquatics - http://www.marine-aquarium.co.za/store/products/category/aquariums/

    Hey Nathan, glad to see you are back!
    I would suggest that you start up your old setup again, it did look awesome when it was running. :)
    All the best!

    Hey @tekkengal thanks. Space is an issue for me at the moment, so I have to get a desktop nano. Once we've built onto the house I'll be starting up a nice big tank so my old tank doesn't really have any use to me at the moment
