The Small Reef Experiment This is meant to be a list of nano(less than 30 gallons) all in one tanks to help me pick one out. All In One (AIO) means a sump is built into the tank. This will be a link to the specs i can find Disclaimer: I have not used any of these. a tank is only as good as its keeper.

Planning to run a soft coral tank to stat and see if it grows. I'm planing to keep it low tech. Filter: Floss to sponge to bio medium. push as much marine pure into low flow area in sump, change floss ever other day. manual twice a day topoffs. I plan on stating out with just water changes and move on to dosing if my testing says so plan 1.this tank is mostly start some growing mushrooms and zoanthis, 2.plant to add green star polyp or Kenya tree (something hardy) to increase my load on tank 3. as bioload grows i will improve my testing and dosing abilities and become better at keeping stability in larger bio loads along the way i want to find the best nano all in one tank If there are any design flaws to avoid in any tanks listed please let me know Any other advise on picking between these would also be useful Please leave a list of any other equipment that is a must for a nano tank
