    Hey guys

    While I was away in the us of a for three weeks my GF took care of my tank. She took all the readings (tests etc) for my main tank). She showed a keen interest in this hobby. So I want to give her a present a nano. You can see my build thread on this forum called My 30l tank.

    Mr Treyman has suggested some sea horses and she wanted me to keep them in my main tank problem was everyone I spoke to they where impossible to keep.

    What other fish are suited for nanos?

    Need to be "pretty" or interesting :)

    :lol: that's a weird comment.

    I love yellow clown gobies, really cute looking fish with a bit of character, can't go wrong with one of them, girlfriend will love it too I'm sure.

    Buy her jewelry instead and keep her fingers out your tank- except when she has to clean the glass- the jewelry makes up for that
