Deeper tank is always better, even if the water volume is less. A 55 is just one of the worst tanks, IMO -- it's like a "big tank" that feels way too small. Once you go over the 30 gallon mark,...

Anubias is one of the hardiest and easiest to grow plants out there... Yes, it can survive without ferts (assuming you do at least water changes, which I'm sure you do given that it's an oscar tank)....

My first two reef tanks were nanos (10 and 20L), and they were the easiest fish tanks I've ever kept. Just load them up with tons of LR and do regular water changes and you're golden. All you need...

Topping off with some tap water is no big deal, I do it all of the time. If I feel like the volume is too much, I add a little prime to my tank after I have already added the water but most of the...

This is a REALLY tempting tank to use, only because according to my research it's pretty much unbeatable in terms of what you get for your money. It's like an $80 tank that has all of the filtration...

Is the FugeRay-R really enough light for a ~10 gallon tank? Trying to find some info but the information seems mixed about whether it's adequate.

If YOU were building a new nano, what would you do?

I'm interested in setting up a new nano planted tank in the 5-12 gallon range (prefer the higher end, but whatever works) to sit on a night stand. Here are the requirements I'm looking for:

I don't see why not. I haven't tried this, but I believe what's common is that people make little clay balls (M&M size) and push them into the soil so that it doesn't block roots, but still gives...
