    Talk to mike at micro reefs llc. He sells all in one pico and micro Coldwater tanks that have built in chillers for the price of a used chiller. And Coldwater marine Aquatics has great pico sized inverts

    Don't have the gorgonians anymore, but I will get more eventually. I lost them in a tank transfer a while back. I actually have more livestock now than I did then in including a bunch of bad ass bat stars

    You know you have got me talked into it. I found a micro chiller that I can put on my 3 gal pico.
    I need to get my frag tank running and move the livestock currently in the pico, into it.
    I have wanted a catalina goby since I saw one. I will get one.

    So I was looking at some of the nems on Coldwater marine Aquatics. There area some really pretty little ones. Not sure how big some of them get, but I believe they were really small and perfect for a pico. I just need to get busy on my frag tank. Its almos ready for water. Just need a 2' piece of hose, which I can pick up at work tomorrow. This will be fun.

    I love the bat star in the first pic. Too big for a pico though, huh!

    Yep bat stars are too big for a 3G but corynactis, Beadlet, waratah ,aggregating and moonglow anemones are perfect for nano's. And each of those are pretty hardy.

    It's totally fun! Coldwater is a world apart from the fussy and picky warm water tanks. It'll be good to have a partner in crime north of the Columbia river
