Stunning tank - I don't think I'd want to leave the house! Very Happy

How much of a challenge is it to maintain? I'm counting on you to convert some of us freshies! lol!

There is two ways to do it. Either wait for the weekend and do a couple hours of work or do like I do and do about 15-20 minutes a day. Once your tank is established it`s really not that bad. What you see there is 14 yrs of work as most of those corals and fish were there when I started.

Wow. Just WOW. You know you're doing things right when you can sustain the same system that long. Kudos to you!

Beautiful! ThumbsUp And quite interesting. Even though I don't have any salt myself I read articles about it all the time and know how difficult it is to get the balance right. What's your favorite SW LFS?

Thanks everyone. As far as my favorite SW LFS it`s two places. Fish World and Richmond Aquarium are the two places I frequent. They are good stores and run by two very knowledgable people.

That is a sweet goby I love you overlooking the second to last coral.

What are the names of the corals pictured?
Very Happy
