    Default BK's 17 Shallow Nano Contest Entry!!!

    Hey all,
    Recently i bought a custom made 17 gallon rimless from kileysmama (amy). Decided it was time to have a true reef tank that is stocked unlike my previous 90 gallon.
    so far the equipment is:
    28x12x12 17.5 gallon rimless tank
    koralia 2
    cheap waterfall pump
    150 watt heater(temporary till replaced)
    oddysea 4x24w t5ho with oddysea 12000k and actinic(soon to be replaced)
    Livestock
    1 Bar Goby

    coral
    Hollywood stunner given free $15
    kenya tree $5
    Green/Brown zoas free $5
    Anthelia given on rock$15

    if im doing this right i add 40 so i have a total of $80 down the drain?

    Looks like you have $40 so far, unless you got these frags from a sponsor w/ receipt- then its only $20.

    Don't forget your CR is great sign showing the tank empty!

    Looks like a good start. Are you going to do something with the waterfall up top? Like is there something that will use an out of water yet wet area to grow?
