    Not that many years ago, little mini reef tanks complete with corals were typically considered extremely difficult to maintain.

    Not so anymore. With the advances in reef keeping science, it has become possible for even novices to have successful nano/mini or micro reef tanks such as the ones pictured in this gallery. It's amazing as well that many of these mini reefs were converted from fish-only tanks to stunning little reef systems by utilizing powerful mini reef tank lighting retrofit kits.
