    Awesome to have you here. Hope to see some pics soon. And how bad is the crash rate on a nano tank. I was looking into setting up a nano myself but have heard that they can crash very easy.

    Mbuna, the trick with nanos is overfilter, understock, lots of water changes and feed super light. The smaller the bio-load the better because the smaller tank volume is so much more unstable. I personally think that freshwater nanos are quite a bit easier because you can use tons of plants to help keep water quality up a bit. I've done both(fresh and salt) and my fresh tanks were WAY easier to deal with.

    Yeah I'm big into freshwater. But I'm looking into salt in the near future. If I can get ferns 120 haha. So I was just wondering how bad the crash on a nano Realy is.
