lol, no fish yet, don't even know if I want any in there as it is quite small. I wasthinking along the lines of invert only so I may add either a cleaner shrimp or a couple of dwarf Hermits :P

This is the type of tank that you can put clown fish and such in, right?

Technically yes. Nano reefs aren't recommended for fish as they're so small and parameters are hard to keep.



(Me showing some of my former salty modness just there :P )

lol, yeah as Sam said, params are harder to keep in a Nano, you have to constantly keep an eye on everything.

Some people do keep fish in Nanos but they are putting the tank at a risk of crashing if they do, hence the need for something that is going to be extremely light on the bio-load.

Marine fish can be quite cheap depending where you get them from. Most Marine fish are actually wild caught due to the difficulty of breeding some species in captivity. The more common fish you see such as Tangs, Angels, Clowns, etc are usually captive bred.......another good fish for Nanos are Dwarf Sea Horses, but I can't seem to find them........
