Tank Advice

Postby moc88 on 05 Jul 2017 14:10

Hi All,

I will be getting back into keeping marine fish and corals again after a long debate with myself
after not having a tank in over 3 years, I finally have decided to bite the bullet and get back into the hobby
I always kept nano marine aquariums largest 33L, Any advice on tanks out there at the moment I was thinking
maybe the MiniReef 90 by aqua one http://www.seahorseaquariums.com/MiniRe ... Black/8846
or the Fluval M90 http://www.seahorseaquariums.com/Fluval ... abinet/751
I dont wan't to go to big on the tank as I always enjoy the challenge with smaller tanks, :D

Hey,

Welcome back to the hobby! There's some great nano systems out there now. Why don't you pick up a second hand tank? I know one of the guys on here is looking to sell his nano. I'd be a lot cheaper that getting a new one!

I'd get a sumped tank if I was you, it doesn't have to be new. It looks much neater plus you have extra water volume and place to grow algae and pods...

+1 on a sumped tank. That said I run an aquanano 60 with an external filter & an algae reactor. It's lightly stocked but plenty of corals. A sump would contain everything though and also add more water volume for stability. You'll need to upgrade the light though for corals. Good luck!

Have a look in the following sale section. A guy call mgrk was selling his optiwhite tank Including stand for 350 or there abouts.. it's bigger than what you are looking for but by the time you've paid seahorse to make a new tank and stand you'll spend more that 350.
