Quote: DO, or DO NOT, There is no try.
About Yourself: Aquarist for more than 20 years. Tried reef with this tank but had to work outside the country. (very sad when I euthanized it). This is also an in-house management training for the whole family. Team work plays a vital role in this tank maintenance specially if I only come home on weekends. (Anyway, family members requested to revive this.) Most of us enjoy watching the "foodball" during feeding and non- feeding time. Well, so far, so good, this has been with us for more than 6 months now.
Fish Kept: Siamese Algae Eater (2), Siamese Flying Fox (7), Long finned Cory, Peppered Cory Cat, Albino Aeneus Cory Cat, Yoyo Loach, Clown Loach, Red Minor Serpae Tetra (14), True Rummynose Tetra (4), Albino Rainbow Shark (2), Koi Angel(3)
Corals/Plants: elephant ear, crypt. wenditii, eleocharis, microsword, java moss, anubias nana, water sprite, red lotus, hair grass, and a lot.
Tank Size: 90 gallons
Advice: Don't be afraid to try something after doing a thorough research on what you wish to apply.
