    I am interested in buying a Nano tank. First things first. Where can I buy one of these and which sizes do they come in? Also what are the price range for these tanks? I am in Cape Town

    Thanks in advance.

    Also check out the for sale forum, there normally are some good second deals where the tanks are in good condition and come with a lot of equipment for a good price. How big is the space that you have to put the tank, that way we can advise you on the best size for you, maybe even take a pic of the area where you would like to put it and post it on here and tell us the dimensions of the area

    Hi Scout -

    I visited Sam's over the past weekend. They have some awesome ReSun nano tanks for sale (including tiny skimmer, built-in filtration, etc). for R1650.

    They are really small - something like 60 litres or so.

    They also have the Boyu TL-450 and TL-550 nano tanks.

    I know that NAAC had a special going on, where you could get a nano tank (I think the Boyu or JBJ brand of tanks), complete with ALL lifestock, water, sand bed, etc.... everything, for something like R6000 - not 100% sure on this though.

    Please have a look at the web-sites of both Sam's (they are located in Bergvliet) as well as NAAC - they are just off from Builder's Warehouse in Somerset West.

    PLEASE BE AWARE: you should ALWAYS still come here for advice, even though you visit our sponsors to purchase life stock and hardware.

    ALSO: PLEASE BE AWARE: that keeping a nano tank, does have VERY narrow bands for scope of error....
    So - it does take a LOT of work to maintain a nano tank.
    You are very limited in the amount of fish you can add to a nano tank.

    Good luck in your decisions.

    Welcome, I have a boyu tl550. it's a great system but once the bug bites, and it will , you WILL upgrade to a bigger tank. Talk to Johannes at NAAC
