I wouldn't dose. Just water changes each week.
Iwould go with LEDs on the nano. Mine has a halide but LEDs are cool

hey Joe, I wouldn't dose for a nano, simple water changes will help keep levels up.

as far as lighting id go T5s or a T5/MH combo. I haven't seen any LED systems yet, which is why I don't want to recommend them until I do.

yeah jbj makes a led hood and so does nanoturners, you can buy the hood from aoa for about 3bills i was dosing a little vitamin c to try to get the zooas to color up more, some kinda bleached out
