Re: 10 gallon reef tank

I have a10 gallon nano and have had it up and running for almost 6 months,so they are doable,not simple but very doable if you have the time and fortitude to test and do 20%water change once a week,I even change out my filter once a week when I do my water change I also test the parameters once a week too.if you can do that religiously you'll have success!of course if you can afford a bigger tank then go for it,if not a 10 gallon is cool.just do alot of research especially on what and how many critters your putting in! Slot of people will try to deter you from a10 gallon but not everyone can afford to do it or are limited by size of tank in their lease.

Re: 10 gallon reef tank

Be wary of emerald crabs noticed some of my corals(zoanthids)where disappearing and then one day I caught my emerald crab munching away!it was partially my fault as she wasn't getting enough food,so I started feeding it some more pellets a col Times a day and so far so good.if I had to do it over I'd probably not have gotten it,that's a hard lesson learned,now I research EVERYTHING I buy,beginners mistake,lol
