Quote: Live for today.
About Yourself: I got into the hobby back in 2001 in the summer between high school and college. I got a great deal on a 40 gallon Eclipse setup and slowly built up a beautiful functioning marine setup. 3 years later that entire setup was stolen by my landlord (long story) and I've been without ever since. Now, 3 years after that, my father-in-law is tired of taking care of his $20,000+ marine haven and passed the responsability onto myself and his son. We've been in charge of this tank for 3 weeks now (Jan. 22/07) and I've got to say it feels amazing to stick my hand into a mini saltwater world again... especially one this beautiful!
Fish Kept: At this time, our sad list consists of: 1 Percula Clown fish 2 Yellow Tangs 1 Squirrelfish 1 Blonde Naso Tang 1 Blue Devil Damsel
Corals/Plants: Gold Maxima Clam Star Polyps Mushroom Polyps A white one A coral that looks like a mutated hand (if any knows please let us know)
Tank Size: 190 gallons
Advice: Be patient and take your time. Although it's tempting, resist the temptation to throw a bunch of fish and corals in your newly devoloping tank.
Description: Our tank, all cleaned, fixed, and in good working order! finally
