Nice and you have the desk. I wish I had time for a true Nano.

Really looking forward to seeing this build, I will be following along.

Haha yeah I never use the desk so I thought it would be the perfect place for a small tank.
I'm gonna try to make it looks as clean as possible. It will be a slow build though

Glad to see you back in the water.

Tank plans sound pretty sweet to me, can't wait to see it all come together.

It's looking pretty sweet in my head haha.

I'm going to go with a more minimal scape and start off with smaller corals and just let them fill in

Just ordered my glass! It's was only $18! I'm going to pick it up Monday. I also got some silicone.

Just finished working on my light. I decided I'm going to hang it by chain from the top of the desk. I took some pieces off my old canopy and got that ready to go for next week. I drilled holes into my heatsink to hook it up to the chain. I also took a little plastic drawer and drilled some holes into it to put my pot knobs through. It makes a nice little project box for my drivers.

I haven't really though a lot about it yet. I know I am going to transfer a lot over from my dad's tank. My old monti cap, Cali tort, frogspawn, and acans.

I know I want some cool zoas and rics. And eventually a maxima clam.

As for fish, a yellow watchman for sure... and maybe a clown of some sort.
