What is the definition of nano tanks? Is there a cut-off on size? What do y'all think....

I'll rock the boat and say 10g or less. In the reef world 10g would still be considered nano and say less than 2.5g would be "micro". I think this may call for a poll.

I think my 16 gallon reef was considered nano at reef-central, but 10 gallons sounds good for fresh planted!
Good job on the new forums!
