hey guys!

New topic I want to touch on....

Filter media, what is it that you're using? Why you're using it? Basic to advanced media...?
What's the BEST in your opinion!

Let me know, personally I'm looking for some nitrate reduction help. I know water changes can be the key husbandry to aquarium success. But, I want a little help if things head south in the nano aquarium. Let's hear it!

Live rock is all I've ever used in a SW aquarium. And a skimmer. So unfortunately I'm not much help in this regard.
Nice! I want a skimmer on the nano. I know a few people said its not really worth it. I want the added filtration and ease of mind when it comes to knowing I have a healthier set up

you can skim on the nano. they sell nano skimmers so definitely look into that. but most of my filtration is just the skimmer and live rocks. and water changes if i remember.

also..you can look at nopox if nitrates get too crazy which is what i am doing now with my tank.
