I consider a nano something you could feasibly carry when filled with water.

20 gallons? Not happening for most people.

Most "nano" tanks on the market are under 10-12 gallons.

It would be hard to carry a 12 gallon filled with water O_O

But, yes, that's the same numbers I think of in my mind, anything under 10-12 gallons

In my opinion anything under 10g is a nano.
