Hey hows the tank going?

Have you made a decision on whether you need those two frags from me?

It is fine if you are waiting for the tank to settle or your lighting to kick in; i do not have to ship next week.

nimble nano is kinda weak IMO, you'd probably be better of with a nano mag. those are a flat pad (the circular handle is the part thats on the outside of the tank).

I use my nimble nano on my pico and it barely keeps the glass clean, not very strong against tough algae and coralline.

I can second the nano mag....I've got 4 of them, even use one on my 55 gallon acrylic and love it. Although it wont take off corraline(will any magnet?) it seems to do the best on algae and is flexible to round corners!

ok it probably cant take older growth of coralline, but it is stronger than the nimble nano I think?

I havent tried a nimble nano....only had mag floats here and I am pretty certain that the mag float has scratched my glass...something about the nano-mag feels much better and safer

i was always under the impression the nimble was the superior glass cleaner? my nano mag is great, colonistas are better

anyway, got the light fixture today, not the mp10, guess itll be here tomorrow.

 

im happy with the fixture itself, i just feel like i cant get my wires under control and its taking away from the clean look -_-
