Hi, I’m Stijn from Belgium and I wrote The Nano Reef Blueprint to help you set up and maintain a saltwater aquarium, also known as a reef tank or marine aquarium. Wether you are just starting out or you already have some experience, there’s something to learn for everybody in The Nano Reef Blueprint.


*also for bigger tanks, not just for nano tanks! If you can keep a nano reef, anything bigger is peanuts 😉

What is The Nano Reef Blueprint by Mister Nano Reef?

What I want to offer you with The Nano Reef Blueprint by Mister Nano Reef is a 100% transparent guide,
my method to start and maintain a reef/saltwater aquarium.

A step by step guide… from picking out a tank, what technique and equipment to use
to setting it all up, the startup cycle, a detailed understanding of the chemistry behind it,
maintenance, what exact products I use to get my tank and colors on point, dosing, water changes,
more information about fish, coral, common problems, and much much more!

As I said, a 100% transparent guide to my method to set up and maintain the
tank that most of you know from my tank diary Instagram account @misternanoreef,
where I documented the first 3 years day by day!

Avoid all the beginner mistakes and do it right from the start.
Stop messing around while your coral & fish pay the price…
So let me help you to get that beautiful reef tank up and running today!
Meet my tank and its critters,
the foundation for The Nano Reef Blueprint!
This is what you’ll learn to set up and maintain!
A quick overview of what to expect!
  • Getting started –  the first steps to take before you get into the hobby.
  • The tank – what to consider when getting a new tank; what size, do you need a sump, what IS a sump, what about a custom build or an all in one system? And an overview of my own tank, cabinet and experience.
  • The technique/setup – in this chapter I talk about all the equipment you need to get going and why you need it. I also talk about my exact setup with a detailed overview of all my equipment and settings like temperature and lighting settings from sunrise to sunset. I even include a complete list of all the extra stuff I use for maintenance (from towels to scissors and hand pumps).
  • The startup – setting up the tank, hook up all the equipment, test run with freshwater, make your own saltwater, pick the right (live) rock, aquascaping, recognizing bad or good hitchhikers and a list of every hitchhiker I encountered during my startup, the science behind the startup cycle, when is the right time to add fish or coral and a lot more. These are just a few steps I cover in this chapter, where you will find a detailed description from A to Z on how to start up your tank, on top of my own notes and experience.
  • The test kits, refractometers & parameters – this chapter covers a description of all chemical elements and the science behind it, how to control & measure them, what test kits I use and a list of the specific values I maintain in my tank.
  • The cleanup crew – the natural way to get your tank algae-free. I go over the available options for your own cleanup crew and a description of my own cleanup crew.
  • The first fish & corals – when & what to get as your first fish & corals with a detailed description of different species and their biology and habbits. Along with a few tips and a checklist on how to pick the ones that are a perfect match for you. I also cover SPS, LFS and leather or soft corals, coral coloration, a few beginner corals, zooxanthellae and coral & fish problems I encountered.
  • Dosing, supplements and more – all the supplements I ever used and dosed and still use up to this day to keep my tank thriving. From basic salt to KH, Mg, Ca and how I make my own salts, amino acids, trace elements, potassium and more. This chapter also includes the food I use for all my critters.
  • The maintenance – Daily, weekly, monthly habits to keep your tank spot on where I give you a detailed list of all the tasks I do on a regular base to keep my tank thriving and healthy!
And if that’s not enough, I’ll be happy to add more reef related information
if you think something is still missing, so you’re guaranteed
to get all the information you need!

I’m here to help. 🙂
