My First Nano

So I've been into reefing for about a year or so now and I have a 55g reef. Im going away to school in a year and I want to take a tank with me. Im thinking about starting a 5g nano. I think it would be a nice piece for my dorn. I have a heater and a tiny power head so the flow is not to great. Im planning on keeping only corals and thats it. Should I go with bare bottom or sand? and what do you guys think I could keep under 2x9w pc's? Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated

i would go with a hob filter, like the skilter for example and this will not only take care of your filtration but you can add chaeto, lr rubble. it will also replace the need for a powerhead as it kicks the water out. Use sand it looks better and with such a small tank and the constant moving you wont suffer any of the (supposed) ill effects of a sand bed.

as for corals, green star polyps, mushrooms, rics, leathers, pretty much soft corals and maybe some lps. just look into it.

You reap what you sow

Current Tank Info: About 30
