PostSubject: My 5+ Years Old Saltwater Reef Tank   2010-09-30, 11:12 am

A ways back some of you may remember me always saying hold on gotta feed the fish on vent. Well here is the pictures. Me and my brother both started a reef tank around 5 ½ years ago. Just last year I had to move my tank to my apartment because of college and I combined it with my brothers tank. What a pain in the ass it was to move. I currently have 2x False Percula Clown Fish (friendly/tough fish to start reefing with) that are both 5 years old / 2x crocea clams and assortment of Zoanthus colony polyps. Also tones of liverock covered by the corals. At night, the tank is different scenery (you can see all the little critters, worms, stars, and hundreds more. I had a lot more different coral but most of it died durring the move. A lot of it depends on the tank setup and conditions to grow rarer coral. My setup: 30 gallon, 250 watt HQI lighting, 2x protean skimmers, 2x powerheads, 1x powerfilter and 1x heater. If your thinking of building a tank, build a saltwater tank. Its worth it in the longrun.

Oh yah, that pink stuff on the glass is coralline algae, which means the tank is very healthy.

Very nice tank!

Some years ago I wanted a tank with sharks. But I moved a lot, so it'll have to wait.

Thanks

For a shark tank, your gonna need a good size tank. I know exotic saltwater sharks are expensive as hell.

Yah, when you start a tank, just make sure you will be living their for some years. You dont want to be moving a tank every year, especially if its like a 55+ gallon tank.

If you look closely and use your imagination a bit, that huge mass in the tank kind of looks like a human body laying from right to left with bent legs. A really flabby-armed human body. It even has a little lump that could be its head.

Shit bro, looks awesome. And now I know where to place dead bodies(according to Steve). But yeah, it kinda looks like someone in fetal position, if you use(at an extreme level) your imagination. What a Face

Wants to express how beautiful the tank is, always loved salt water tanks (life - oceanlife) I know a guy that has a tank thats like 5' all and 6' wide and i cnt remember if it was 4 or 3' deep. just had the plants and a starfish and some ...... sea monkeys!! hahaha (he was prepping when i saw it.)


side note: Reave never denied that was a body. so be very very nice to him. Wink
