ChristopherDido posted a topic in Nano Reef JournalsHi All This is a Thread Dedicated to a Middle School Reef Club tank here in St. Louis. So Please watch language 🙂 Back Story, I setup a Saltwater tank at my house last year (3 years ago now) and would show students pictures of my tank and they were jealous we did not have a tank at school. So I said Why not? There is an amazing LFS owner here in St. Louis and he got me an amazing deal on a Used IM 20 Fusion (now my personal tank at home.) He Loves teachers and especially those that want to teach more about the Hobby, so he has helped me out quite a bit with getting things going and has an extremely flexible thing with me on the tank, because we will not be here over they summer the tank will broken down and reset back up for the new club comers each year. Alright onto the Details...
