allesluge posted a topic in Pico ReefsHi to all I have been lurking in this forum for a few years waiting to get involved in this beautiful hobby. Not having the time, enough knowledge, space, or resources, I procrastinated the start up of my 14 gal bio cube. On my daily lurking schedule I read Christopher Marks announcement for the Old School 2.5 gal Pico Reef competition. And as life has settle down a bit I think it’s time to begin. I don’t run for the price, I run for the joy, and to keep a continuos advance in my Pico reef and to keep track of it. I am very excited, it is a great forum, because of all of you, and the best way to learn and share knowledge.

Current FTS: 6/12/19 Hi guys, this is my first build thread as part if the Nano Reef community. I've followed along with previous contest but finding a custom container that inspired me proved to be too daunting of a task. When I heard about this contest, I immediately was inspired to create a great janky tank. I'm not sure exactly what I liked most about the proposed rules but the thought of having a miniature tank that has the potential to look like a real fish tank spoke to me. I had a lot of ideas of what I could build, as I'm pretty handy with wood, but was pretty perplexed by the proposed limitations. My immediate goal was produce something that looked similar a small scale RS Reefer. But without much need for a custom cabinet underneath the tank like a RS Reefer, my ideas turned more towards a combination of my first 2 fish tanks, a RS Max Nano and a Fluval edge! I first started venturing into this hobby 3 years ago with very limited knowledge and a lot of inspiration from my good friend and also a contestant in this competition, granitereefer! I sent him some of my sketches on my phone of what I wanted to do and just like that I quickly became neck deep into this competition and community!
