Nano Zoa garden is such a boring title for a blog!

I can't think of a suitable title for my blog so I will write my 'inane scribblings of a lunatic' then think up a title. At present I have 2 small quarantine tanks and no display tank. I had to shut down my 4'x2'x2' due to moving to a flat with wooden floors. I will be moving again in the next few months hopefully to ground floor accommodation. Not only do I want a larger system again I'm disabled so stairs are a problem. A flat is what we Brits call an apartment. so, why am I on an American forum? I love reefing, it's fascinating and exciting, I want to learn as much about the hobby as I can by learning from as many different reefers as I can. I am a member of forums from 4 countries, UK, USA, Japan and Germany. Every community does things differently. By reading forums from different countries you get the benefit of various opinions and ideas because different laws, customs and culture, costs and availability of stock affect how people keep fish/corals and what fish/corals they keep.
Moving on, I'm planning on setting up a small tank, not my quarantine tanks as they are old and scratched. I will be setting up a tmc microhabitat 15 or 30 as a Zoa garden. These little tanks have everything you need to keep a small amount of zoas, CUC and maybe a Yellow clown Goby. I have to keep the tank small as my wooden floors vibrate as trucks go past my window. I plan on using a Koralwellt Ceramic pillar as my main decoration rock with live rock rubble in the filter to seed bacteria, algae and critters. I have a friend with a very healthy DSB who is giving me some sand to seed my live sand with all the lovely worms and shrimp you get in a DSB. I have a guy who is going to supply me with 7 varieties of Zoas and a gorgonian once my system has been cycled.
That's pretty much it for now, I will update my blog as I move along. I doubt it will be of any help to any reefers on here but I like to keep a log of my progress for my own benefit but I am more than hapy to answer any questions from anybody. I still have'nt thought of a good title for this blog.
