hell yeah. Nanos kinda suck. There is no space, and if you add things like surface skimmers, you have to give up valuable space. My advice is to go with a custom nano. DIY is your best friend for nano reefs.

are you going to get a new tang, to replace the jumped one?

C2C,
The fun thing about custom is that anything is possible. I've seen people use like 1" acrylic to make a nano, check out some of the tanks at nano reef website.
