Introduction

I am a planted tank person and experimenting with my son on a Salt tank. Trying to mentor more than run the tank. Trying to get him to do the work on this, so we will start with fish and a clean up crew, but not much else and see how maintenance goes. If this works out OK, I will start a Nano 45 Cube for salt and see if we can make this one interesting as well.

I know starting him with a 20 Gallon tank is a recipe for disaster, but better he learn to do maintenance lesser volume but more often. Hoping this will make is more enjoyable. We shall see.
