Description: 75 gal with a huge sump and a huge skimmer (I downsized from a 190 gal but I kept the sump and skimmer... the bigger the better!)

I dont rember the name brands of everything but if someone wants to know I can tell ya!

I sure have to trim it all the time. but its pretty so whatever...
Tank Size: 75 gallons
About Yourself: I went to Maui scuba diving in the reef... I was hooked! I always had tanks as a kid so it was only natural to end up with a giant reef of my own...I love it! I have had it going for four years now, so I say its not going anyware!! Its a lot of upkeep, but so am I, so no problems for me here!! lol... I enjoy it more than watching tv!! theres always drama happening in that little world they live in too...its like the discovery channel live.

i went to jamaica last year and found a really nice reef about 50 yards out from the hotel beach. i spent at least 3 hours a day for the rest of my trip snorkeling there. and for the same reason i have this huge itch for a salt reef tank. great job on yours. im not excited for a higher electric bill tho. :( fish avatar
