Hey all, I have decommissioned this nano sometime in December. I've set up a 180 gallon 5 feet shallow tank in November and I've slowly shifted the contents over. I did lose a couple of birdsnest colonies during the last few weeks of the tank's existence to dino and probably a lack of general maintenance.

 

Unfortunately the new tank suffered an episode of ich and probably velvet due to a tang i introduced and I lost most of the fish that I've had for the past two years. Ended up using the nano tank as a quarantine/hospital tank. Things are looking a bit more stable now.

Guess this wouldn't qualify as a nano anymore.... Thank you everyone here for all your support

Still a nano in my mind. Love it. Sorry to hear about the fish. Stupid tangs. I definitely have a love hate relationship with them.
