Hello everyone, 

I am new to Nano Reef but not new to the hobby. I wanted to start a build thread to share my photos and track my progress over the years. I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment.

Awesome, thank you! Do you have any regrets when it comes to your equipment choices? Where did you buy most of your frags?

 

Overall, I like those dimensions. Just the corner overflow (vs. falseback) gets me. 

48"x30"x20" would be a nice 120g setup

Holy smokes!!!  Goals for sure.  Stunning!!  
 

Some amazing stuff you have there.  That last photo of the ASD Strawberry Lemonade looks like a frag of WWC French Tickler I just picked up from a local.

 

I really like that Rickys poison Ivy and the Battle Corals Houdini.

 

So, do you ship any frags?  😂

Thank you 😁 The ASD Strawberry Lemonade started out similar to the WWC Lemon Twist but now that they have grown into 4" pieces they really started to differentiate. I have the WWC French Tickler and it is one of my favorite corals, it does look different than the ASD Strawberry Lemonade because it doesn't have the yellow tips and the pink and blue is much more pronounced in the body. Yes, I do ship frags just shoot me a PM.
