    Preface:

    I’ve been away from the club/hobby for awhile and I’m feeling inspired. I have a couple projects in in the works. One of them is a total reboot of my first tank, my 40B, which has been up now for several years. More on that one later.

    I’ve always wanted a nano tank. I’m slowly gathering equipment for a 20 Gal long mixed reef with a school of yellow tang, I mean 2 clown fish, I know will be a challenge given it’s smaller water volume. Sumpless none the less. I’ll update this thread as I progress and actually take pictures.

    Ewww, you said "sumpless".

    I always advocate for a sump, not just an easy way to hide equipment but also a way to increase water volume.

    In smaller tanks having more water volume can really help.

    In any event, I'm super glad to see ya back sir!!

    I totally agree. I do have a 10gal that could potentially serve as a sump. I'm patiently waiting for the guy in the brown truck to show up, more to follow.
