Tank on 4/17/15: >--Beginning of Tank Journal--< I decided to convert my 10g tank that I keep at work from a planted tank to my first nano reef tank. Which also happens to be my first real foray into saltwater. My intention is to make this setup as easy and painless as possible to maintain since I will not be at work over the weekends. I am also using the same equipment that I had when I was running it as a planted tank. The only changes being that I plan on switching the power compact bulb and I plan on running Chemi-Pure Elite and Seachem Purigen in the filter. Equipment: 10g Miracle Baby rimless tank Aqua Clear 20 power filter Archea 36w light Marineland Visi-Therm Heater 50w 11lbs. BRS Reef Saver Dry Aquarium Live Rock 10lb Fiji Pink Arag-Alive! Reef Sand Koralia Nano powerhead pump 425 gph Coralife 50/50 Compact Fluorescent Lamp - Straight Pin - 36 W - 16" I tore down the tank and did a thorough cleaning of the tank and all equipment. When this tank was running as a planted tank I never bothered with a background. However, I wanted a blue background for my nano reef because I believe it gives the illusion of depth. I have always done the plastic backgrounds that i scotch tape to the back of the tank. However, because of the expected salt creep I wanted to paint the back of the tank which I had never done before. I purchased a can of Krylon Fusion "Patriot Blue" paint from my local Ace Hardware store and went to work on painting the back of the tank.
