Description:120 gal full reef saltwater tank. 150 lbs of live fiji rock. Tons of live coral.Huge clam! 2x 175 watt 10,000k meta halides. 2x 96 watt 10,000k compact flourescents, protien skimmer, Ultraviolet starlizer.
Advice:Do research, visit some people with reef aquariums, internet informaition, pics, emails to different hobbyist, videos on setups, read, ask questions if not sure, plan for the future(expansion of your corals and livestock) purchase what your tank needs, and don't try to cut corners especially with live stock and equipment like lights, skimmers, etc. Don't add what you don't test for, and do it from the heart, and not to impress. Respect the livestock and the livestock will reward you with their beauties. Careful water changes, and don't get too technical trying to make your tank automatic, otherwise you will rely on the equipment and never develope a relationship with your aquarium, and you won't notice when something is not right if you leave it up to the equipment. Pay attention, be patient, and respect LIFE!!!!!
Thanks to all who look and those who voted on this tank. Hopefully, anyone with an aquarium can be inspired by these beautiful life forms. As you can see, it is possible to maintain for prolong periods and counting. Please understand that in no way am I stating with my experiences with this aquarium that this is the only way or the best way. This is one way. Big or small, it will still require the disipline and careful planning, and initial expenses. All these tanks in this site have their beauty, and the people who have summitted their aquariums on this site, have their beauty in their hearts. Thanks the site owners for allowing us the priviledge to show and share our hearts on this wonderful site.
BLESS US ALL.....PEACE.....

Advice:While the LFS can be knowledgable, do your own research online!
