About Yourself:I have been a part of the reef culture for over 15 years. This is my second reef tank. I started with a 75 gallon tank in which I learned a lot before having the luck of getting this 200 plus tank. My original goal when I set up this micro reef was that every coral could be reproduced providing tank raised, hardy and colorful corals to the hobby. The tank has been successful to that goal.
Fish Kept:Yellow Tang, Flame Hawk, Chromis, Clown Fish, assorted damsel, Rabbit Fish
Other invertebrates: Cleaner shrimp, chestnut cowrie, royal urchin, blue linka starfish, snails, black brittle star
Advice:Research as much as you can and have a plan. Try not to do things on the fly and think through what you need to do to be successful with anything you will have in your micro reef. This tank has been up and running since 2003. Most of the corals are a number of generations from the originals. Most of the fish are 8 to 12 years old. Growth in the tank is very fast and corals must be harvested every 6 to 12 months to prevent over crowding.
Fish Kept:Yellow Tang, Hippo Tang, Naso Tang, Tonomi Tang, Two Yellow Tail Damsels, Humu Humu Trigger, Koran Angel, King Angel, B&W Clowns, 2 Chromis, FoxFace, Yellow Damsel, Six Line Wrasse, and A Watchman Goby

Description:My Reef Tank With new coral Frog spawn
Advice:I am still new at this, 3yrs, but you have to read. Understand your enviroment, not everything you see or want can thrive in your tank. Don't get discouraged. you will lose a fair amount but know why and learn from it.
About Yourself:Not much to say about me besides I'm addicted to SW fish. Started after 10 years of freshwater and I'll never go back. Learned some things the hard way until I got smart and started listening to those that had far more experience than I.
