i5 Nano tank

Hey guys I wanted to make a progression blog about my new nano reef tank.
Here it is so far a 5 gallon y誕ll in one tank.


This aquarium is going to be holding a clown fish and hopefully an anemone or two, and some soft corals.
I知 going to be placing a kessil a160we blue tuna.

Yep, you might be able to put a maxi mini rock flower anemone in there but they aren't hosting anemones.

You never know what a clown will "host." I had a perc that "hosted" a power-head for 3 years before claiming a spot above a rock that had no corals on it. Every time I put a frag on the rock he'd move it.

This is true, right now I have her in my sump away from all other fish because she tries to kill them. I知 honoring I can place may be a goby in the tank or a couple of fire fish and some nice rare corals. Probably not sps because I think they will use up to much calcium to fast in that size of a tank.

This tank has one flaw it it leaks the way the over flow it it drains into a small trough and fills up to fast so I have to recut the whole bigger to get the flow right. I値l take pic latter when I fix it.

I have 2 BTAs and 2 clowns in my 5 gallon. Not saying it's right, just that it's possible if you know what you're doing.
