Whoever says that reef tanks are hard to keep needs to seriously reconsider their life choices. Because if you’ve ever seen a decent nano pico reef tank like Ali’s at Amazing Aquariums & Reefs, then you know you only need two fingers to count the devices powering this miniature aquarium.
This precious 2.5 – 3 gallon aquarium only has a basic LED striplight and a tiny power filter to provide everything its animals need to grow and survive. Granted in this small package Ali is not aiming to break the world SPS-growing record, just to provide an the ideal conditions for keeping just Flower Anemones and a single tiny domino damselfish.
It can be quite irksome to hear people say that keeping a saltwater aquarium or a reef tank is very hard, and you need several thick books to learn all the ins and outs. But hogwash I say, because you can definitely do a small simple reef tank like this nano and work your way up to bigger aquarium challenges.
Like the tank itself, the video feature of Ali’s Flower Nem Pico Reef is short and sweet but there are a few pearls of reefkeeping wisdom that can be applied to small and large tanks alike. This video was produced specifically to lead up to the full feature of Ali’s amazing reef aquarium store so be sure and subscribe if you haven’t already so you never miss any future videos.
