View Full Version : 5 Gallon Nano Newbie

03-23-2016, 05:42 PM
Hi everyone! So my fiance is experienced with saltwater tanks and has his own 60 gallon. I finally gave in because I wanted my own tank and decided to start a small 5 gallon nano. I have a great filter and I'm getting a Fluval Sea Halo light in the mail soon, but I need a powerhead. Now, I've heard the Hydor Koralia Nano 240 is a good one but my question is how quiet is it? My nano tank is in our bedroom and if it's louder than a fan then it won't be good. If you're wondering why I'm not asking him, it's because I want to show him I can get into this saltwater stuff myself. I look forward to posting photos soon of the beginning of my tank and periodically as it grows. Right now I just have some base rock and live sand no corals or fish. TIA

So I've posted pictures in the Tank Journal forum. Future updates will likely go there.
