Nano reef tanks to die for every month

With nano reef tanks, small is ridiculously beautiful

Nano-Reef.com is the best site for small marine tank fans on the web. Besides its funky, friendly forums, the site picks a nano reef tank to showcase every month.

These nano reefs are always stunning examples of what can be done on a small-scale by committed aquarists. December’s winner, from member DeMartini, features gorgeous colours and a range of mushroom and ricordea corals after my own heart.

This lovely nano reef tank might only be 14-gallons, but size never stops a good nano reefer:

Eventually I removed the hood and upgraded the lighting to a 70w HQI SunPod, which made my corals pop and allowed me to keep a clam…YAY! About half a year ago I added a refugium to keep nitrates down; I drilled holes in an old 6-gallon eclipse and placed it on a little stand right above my main display.

There’s a few more tidbits on the tank and a whole lot more pictures of the tank in December’s Nano Reef Tank of the Month writeup.

That’s a very beautiful nano! Nice gradation of colors, yet subtle with nothing that is overpowering. Superbly balanced. Great job.
