More Info

State: Massachusetts
Country: United States
Description: All glass tank that I have had for 30 + years!! Still use under-gravel filter (that's right). w four power heads. I also use two Marineland Magnum 330 canister filters running micron cartridges and I also use a Marineland 530 C canister filter running Chemi-pure blue and Poly-filters. Since it is "fish tank" I went rather simple on the lighting. Four florescence tubes w different spectrum's. Also three halogen spot lights. A friend help me make the hood so the fixtures are from home depot since you can't see them when the hood is shut.
Advice: Good luck
Corals/Plants: N/A
Tank Size: 220 gallons
About Yourself: I got into this hobby (30 years ago) w 150 gallon salt water tank. I enjoy doing huge water changes monthly, cleaning filters, scrubbing tanks & mopping up salt water at 2 am ! (haha-just kidding). Actually I got into this to pick up hot woman! (again-jk). I am into everything w water-scuba diving etc. I also make my own frozen fish food as I feel it is the key to keeping large fish (Angels, Tangs etc.) looking good. I know there are some awesome freeze-dried & frozen foods out there and I am not saying I don't feed my fish them on occasion. However i discovered that by going to the fish market (even at your grocery store) you can buy raw shrimp. clams, scallops, muscles and grind them up w some vita-chem and spirulina and it is way cheaper than any "other" frozen food you can buy.
