Nano Sizing?

What is the biggest a nano tank can be to still be able to label it as a nano tank?

I don't think it's really official, but generally, 10 gallons from my understanding.

From what I have seen, FWIW, in freshwater nano is 10g or less. In saltwater nano is 29g or less. I think it probably has something to do with the large amount of sand and liverock in a SW tank. But then again, I could be totally off base.

I consider anything under a 20, in FW, a nano. And in SW, anything under 29.

I would say 1-10 gallons nano, 11-20 gallons small, 21-50 gallons medium, 51-100 gallons large, 101-200 gallons huge, 201+ gallons king size. Just to clear things up haha.

I'd say 10 gallons is at the end of the nano spectrum, but personally, I feel that it should be less than (say) 6 gallons
