I've been encouraged by a couple of members to share, through this forum, my progress with this project. My initial reaction was who cares what I do plus they're scores of these threads.
I was told that because I wanted to try a nano with natural filtration other members may benefit reading about successes and/or failures and the main reason this site exists is for learning and sharing.
Several years ago I had a large reef tank with all the bells and whistles. It was a lot of work and a disappointment. I gave it up and moved on. The failures were mostly my fault. To fast and to much bio-load. But the wonder of it never left. After reading what Christopher Marks wrote several years ago and the results of parishilton got me going.
I then found brandon429's thread where he has a wonderful 1.5G nano in a Wal-Mart vase. That pushed me over the edge.
Full disclosure here. Even though I once had a tank means nothing. It was long ago. So anyone reading this needs to know I'm not any kind of expert or know it all. I've read a lot and have asked many questions through DM's and will proceed with a "lets see what happens" attitude.
I'll share what I do. Be honest about what works and what doesn't and welcome help and constructive criticism.
I'm still learning about how to manage photos on the site and will have some up in the next post. If anyone wants to see anything specific let me know and I'll do my best.
