    Would the new fluval edge work as a nano reef tank? If yes, what all additional equiptment would have to be purchased? I have never done reef tanks before, or saltwater none the less and wanted to get some basic help on this.

    Thanks,

    Corals require high lighting, and from what ive seen from fluval edge setups is that they come with an incandescent fixture in the hood - which only covers the back center of the tank. So without some major lighting upgrades, you wont be able to keep corals.

    You would definitely have to modify the lighting somehow if you wanted corals, and most people who run nanos that small do so without protein skimmers but you would have to be really diligent about water changes and stock very lightly.
    It would definitely be a good looking nano though!

    based on those things, it should be easy... I am soo thinking of doing green clown gobies!
