About Yourself: Run a real estate appraisal business and two tanks sit in my office, 1 reef and 1 fowler.
Fish Kept: Parrot fish, speckled grouper, clown trigger, 2 yellow tangs and 1 purple, maroon clown, 2 serpent starfish and whatever snails and hermits manage to survive from week to week.
Corals/Plants: Corals in my other tanks. Mostly dyed coral skeletons and live rock in this tank.
Tank Size: 150 gallons
Advice: Try building an algae filter and stop doing water changes! (Lowers nitrates and phosphates.) Low wattage blue spectrum lighting and algae filter have really kept nuisance algae down in the tank and on the glass. I feed my parrotfish and tangs nori and they are much healthier than they had been on flake foods. I make my own chopped seafood blend mixed with Selcon for predators.

About Yourself: Professional aquarist for the last 17 years. Worked in many fish stores around Dallas, TX to Houston, TX. Then worked two years at the Houston Zoo Kipp Aquarium where I was hired to reverse the neglect of the 4,000 gallon reef zone system. I have now been in business for myself through Captive Aquatic Ecosystems, LLC. for the last 8 years. Custom aquarium sales and maintenance.
Fish Kept: I have been a professional for 17 years now so this list is impossible for me to write down.
Corals/Plants: I have been a professional for 17 years now so this list is impossible for me to write down.
Tank Size: 125 gallons
Advice: I would say number one key is educate yourself before you jump in too deep. Start off slowly until you have a good grasp on what you are doing. When getting advice from someone, consider the source for the quality of the info. If their tank looks bad, take the advice with a grain of salt. Consult many people before you make a big purchase. Sooner or later you will get the hang of it.
