IMO i would say a 15 gallon or smaller. Other people say 7.5 gallon or smaller.

Smaller than you think you can deal with.
Nano tanks are supposed to be a personal challenge.
That's my story and I'm sticking with it. ;-)

I'd say smaller than 10 gallons, 10 gallons and up are not nanos in my book.

Usually 10 gals and under is admitted although it probably varies from individuals. I guess someone whose biggest tank is 15 gallons is less likely to call a 10 a nano than a 200 gallon tank owner.
