6 gallon. 6 months old.

New to the hobby, don't even remember what the tank is called, but it has a bowed front. As you can see, it is super crowded now. I just keep getting more corals and my Kenya tree keeps growing really fast, I have about 5 frags throughout the tank that I need to take care of. The center piece with the red mushroom and xenia has been taken out of the tank. I'm still in the process of setting up a new 5 gallon take to move some stuff into. Let me know what you think. :)997a6405a6ec104e0e6410c5dbb082c9.jpg

Or just let me know if you have any advice, so i can be more successful, I know nano tanks are supposed to be more challenging to take care of.

Yeah And think about how much you like the Xenia. You're about to have a ton of it. If you don't want a ton of it then you might want to remove it.

I second adding another piece of rock so you have more real Estate to mount coral on. Also do you have an auto top off? I think that's very important on Nanos just because swings happen so much faster with less volume of water.

No I don't have an auto top off, but I do check on my tank daily and do a water change every week. So far everything has been happy. Only thing that is causing havoc is the emerald crab, so he will be getting a new home soon.

Definitely agree with getting lots more rock! You will have lots more room and options for different corals. Some people might disagree with me but I personally prefer lots and lots of live rock, my tanks are easily double the amount of rock per gallon (55 gallon has over 100 pounds)

Don't be too nervous. I had a 5 gallon nano for 7 months before getting a 20 long. They're easy as long as you keep it simple. Mine had a pump and live rock and that's it. It grew zoas and I even had an anemone and a Cali Tort in there that grew and looked great. You just gotta stay on top of water changes and you're golden. I did 1 gallon every weekend.

That reminds me of my old 55.. I had 110 pounds of rock in that thing. It was just a wall of rock end to end.  I think I have about 17 pounds in my 14gal biocube right now..
