-- A Particular Italian Nano Cube --

Hello everyone!
sorry if my english sucks !
I'm an Italian boy and I'm writing here because the advice of friends and people who like my tank.

I have a nanoreef that measures 30x30x35 (20 liters) in use since January 2009.

In the past I have collected zoathids and Ricordea, for that reason my friends have always said that my tank reminded the 'American style’.

Last year, I had many problems with the Zoanthus (zoa pox, nudibranchs, necrosis) and I'm replacing the Zoanthus with acans :-)

Probably because of the LED and tridacna crocea (a large filter feeder in a small place), I have always had a thank with high oxidation, so I must to feed the corals very often (although I have 3 fish in a few liters) or soft living in difficulty as opposed to the SPS living very well and have never had a problem.

LIGHTING:
60 watts of LED cool white (10,000 K)
6 watt LED warm white (3,000 K)

You have so much in such tight quarters. Do you have a lot of warfare going on between corals?

I placed the corals according to their chemical compatibility, so no chemical warfare
Only the Stylophora milka is burning slowly the montipora stellata green ... it grows above her.

Non tutti lo usano nč sanno che č una buona fonte di cibo per il reef.
In Italia il lievito di birra fresco - venduto in stick - č molto comune in tutti i supermercati e costa meno di uno euro.

Very nice indeed. What a riot of colors and textures. Under the royal blues it looks like a Jimi Hendrix poster.
