Alex's Reef Tank

Timeline

Introduction

Hello,

I've currently been in the "Reef & Marine" aquarium hobby for nearly 7 year now, and I have to be quite honest - I LOVE IT! I've had several setups to include a 55G,75G,125G and my current project 20G mixed. Learning something new all the time was the main reason why I stuck it out in the hobby. You will grow a sense of appreciation for these inhabitants and creatures in the wildlife.

Background

I decided to start a NANO tank and see what the challenge is all about -- During this setup I wanted to stay relatively low on cost, compared to regular setups, I wanted to keep things as natural as possible to what it would be in the wild.

I have a very basic design and nothing really different, I've learned that the most simplest filtration & setups tend to be the most successful.

Inspiration & Goals

I've always wanted a colorful garden of ZOAs and wanted to keep colors that really pop.
