While everybody start setting up their tank as BIG, HUGE, MEGA, GIANT, COLOSSAL ++++++++

I decided to head for the other direction as small, tiny, micro, pico, atom - - - - - - -

My initial plan was starting up a big tank, but later got intrigued by a 1G "Reef Bowl", then I just wanted to make something small and unique! :D

I chose Aqueon Evolve 4 as my choice of set up and possibly of adding a Aquaticlife 115 mini skimmer to it.

As for lighting, I will replace the original stock with a 18w 12,000k LED and will be using Exo Terra Light Bracket to hang it.

As for the tank set up, I am still waiting for my LED, hygrometer, salt and the wooden stand, as they are still in transit! :eek:

stay tune!

:D

How many gallons is this tank? (I'm in the process of a similar project-one can never have too many tanks right?) :D

4 gallon

did not you say few weeks ago: " yes I am and I will do it slow and right this time" :)

It's too costly to do a big tank, so I am just starting small now

:)

+1 for no skimmer, I usually run tanks skimmerless unless they are over 30 gallons. But it all depends how strict you are with maintenance.

why in the world you need skimmer for 1G?
Because 1G of water do get dirty, and frequent water change is not good for certain type of corals.

What greg said. I wouldn't go with a skimmer since the skimmer is about as big as your tank.
Just do water changes
I tried it, it fit! :)

Ha I knew it! :D

Get some water in it already!
I can't, I am still waiting for my salt!!! T.T"

Is the new tank also 4 gallons? I also agree with no skimmer since water change is reallym more tank enough once a week. Since the tank is so small doing a 25% w/c will take 30mins.

But enough of that get some rock in this baby!! :D :D
It's 4.5G :D

Will update new stuff after Wednesday! :D

Everything came in today except the LED light!!! Cheers* I got Fluval SEA hydrometer, Fluval SEA salt, Fluval SEA trace elements, Fluval nano stand (It's HEAVY :eek:) and API reef master test kit!

Honestly, it's even more expensive than buying an used 12G nano cube + stand from a GTAA member! but IS IT WORTH IT???

Yeah! It's new!!! ^^

At least the stand is cheaper than the AI's nano cube stand! :p

As for the build, I will start tomorrow after work!!! :D *I can't wait*** I hope I can sleep tonight too! XD
