    Default Xivm's work nano

    Yes that is correct I said work nano. Why work you ask? Because it on my "desk" at work. My boss loves the idea just not sure his boss will. But we only see his boss once a year or so. ( between you and me I dont think my boss has told his boss about this yet)

    Any way I am going to throw my gauntlet down into this contest too! Why not? Right!
    First off Specs.
    12x12x12 custom glass tank ordered from Reef Paradise.
    Filtered by a rio nano skimmer hob filter combo thingy.
    Additional flow provided by a maxijet 400 which I may hook into a 2 littlefishes reactor.
    Lighting provided by an Evill66 LED retro bulb 20K ( this is going to be a true test to see if it will grow corals or not)
    Will be a mixed reef ( I dont know how mixed it will be before the end of the contest)
    10lbs of LR
    6lbs of LS (wanted to go black and white but couldnt find what I wanted.)

    I set this up on saturday 02/06/10 Pics are from Last night. I will post a pic or two this weekend with the I luv CR and date for tomorrow. I also pulled out a piece of rock. Pics you shout Ask and ye shall receive!
