I have 4w CF over my 1g. Everything in sig doing ok. 9w would be "high light" I think.

Good grief, another reefer doing a planted tank. It's like a plague! When will the reefer madness end?

I can say that because I started my planted tank after I did two nano-reefs. ;)

But if I had to, I would definitely go with HOB -- because like you say, space is at a premium in a nano. Just get a HOB with adjustable flow, dial it down to...

Yep, saw a 2.5g AGA Mini-Bow on display at the LFS. Was staring at the tank for quite a while before I finally realized there was that internal filter in the tank. Black background is a must, though.

I don't think mechanical filtration is necessary per se but you may opt for it anyway. I have no mechanical filtration in my 1g, just an airstone for water movement. I see a few particles floating...

Cool, glad to see another join the truly tiny tank ranks! B)

I'd be less worried about the plants and fish as that plastic hood though. 15w will be twice the heat it was designed to withstand...

Zurp, I think the AquaScene is already built like that, with a rim on the tank that the top nestles inside of snugly. At least, no spills from condensation or even sloshing so far, and a lot of...

Wanting to start with low-light plants, I foolishly bought some Crypts -- Lutea and Ciliata. Gadzooks they're HUGE in a 1g! The LFSs I went to today did not have a great selection, so maybe later I...

The bulb was held in with some kind of silicone or rubber or something. Pry it out with needle nose pliers to get rid of all the broken glass. Here it is safe and clean.
