A floating,yet simple nano tank.

Hi guys,hope everyone is doing ok.
It's been a while but you know how life always gets in the way
And since we are still in the early days 0f the new year, i hope you,your families and of course your tanks will have a great year

This is the first nano tank i have ever had. Initially it was supposed to be an sps dominated but a couple of BTA's showed up and decided to bite the bullet almost 13-14 years after my last encounter with them

Tank is about 30 litres(10 gallons if i'm not mistaken-if i am please correct me).
It's lit with some pl lights.Two white bulbs and two blue.
There is a100w heater and a small pump which consumes 3.5w and gives around 1000l/h of flow. I have cut almost every plastic bar on the covers so i won't have to clean them all the time,plus i have the feeling that it makes the flow a bit more random.

Tank is only 4 months old and still has a long way ahead of it. On the top of the rock i have placed a small piece of star polyps which i hope will go and settle on the back glass too. Maybe it will look nice in the future lol
I am also thinking of adding a sun coral under the rock. I think it will look nice but i'm really skeptical because i do not want to target feed etc.
Up until now i love this tank because it needs and has taken the lowest attention that i have ever payed in one of my reefs.

I will upload some pics too later but for now here's a vid. Hope you like it https://youtu.be/bsXHzWJCY7k

Looks great.... I love the idea of having a anemone nano.... So fun to watch the clown and them all.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Justin,really glad you like it man
Having always been drawn to sps i was really skeptical with this tank but this thing has hooked me up like i never expected. Like you said it's really fun to watch. Maybe in the future i will add one more clown.

One of the nicest things you can read/hear about one of your tanks!

Thank you both(and the rest of the people) that went into all that trouble of opening the link. I know it's a bit frustrating compared to a thumbnail, at least for me lol
