You're right Andrew that was a little harsh, I was having a bothersome day and took you at your word. Rather than go on about it I shall simply say:
Please accept my appology.

I didn't take it as harsh but I know it could have been. Reality here is Andrew is a perfect example of how hard a nano really is. Andrew knows what he is doing, is not a newbie to saltwater yet he still has issues with a nano. It isn't a lack of ability or knowledge but small tanks are not easy. Fact is nano's are just downright hard to control. Anytime someone says a nano is easy you should be the first one to let them know that isn't the case. It is rare to see a nano that hits the two year mark and even more rare to see one exist multiple years.

I give you lots of credit for sticking to it and making it work.

I enjoyed reading other people's tank stories and the accompanying pictures such as yours. There are some great pictures by some of your readers that is also worth noting. Just as I was taken up looking at your photos, mr Floridaboy had to change the station by enclosing a link that showed an extremely expensive showtank Confused Wunderbar! Gorgeous.

Mr Dale, could you please tell me which salt brand did you opt for and if your floorboards have started to creak yet?

Just another update:

I've added more rock (and a rather large toadstool) to the tank and am slowly going bare bottom by siphoning sand out with each water change. For some months now it has run as a skimmerless system as I have discontinued the use of my finicky Coralife skimmer. It might cause some to cringe by stating that my filtration regime at this point consists of an Aquaclear 30 (for surface skimming), a Fluval FX-5, carbon and regular PWC's. Having said that I must also point out that I have a very low fish bioload and am very careful when feeding. The Unicorn fish in the photo's is a rescue project. He (it) was very emaciated and had the tail chewed off but is now eating well and putting on weight.
