    My entry will be my 21"x12"x9" 1/2" thick acrylic desktop nano. Last month I had a heater not shut off and cooked the whole tank, and lost all of the coral in the tank. So I'm restarting it and at the same time as the contest. I haven't decided what exactly will be inside, some kind of lps though and no fish. For the first time in about 2 years I'll be running a filter. Since I downgraded to the 24g, I haven't used a skimmer or filter. I looked over different filters and had a tight budget, I decided on the Fluval C2. It's still fairly new to the market and I'm intrigued to see how it performs in saltwater. For lighting I'll be using a Nova Extreme 2x24w (UVL 454 & UVL Indigo Sun).

    Here's a few pieces in the tank. No aquascaping done yet, still constructing the rock formations.

    The rock work is done, I don't think it'll change much. I used mostly Pukani dry and some Jakarta. In the front or left part I cut the rock into small pieces to create the wall which has zoa frags attached. Still deciding on what corals will be in the tank. So far I think whats in there is staying. More detailed shots to come later.

    Thanks, it's going through a small cycle, not as big as I expected from my previous cycles with MB7.
