Since then a long time has passed and nowadays I have this 1000 L reef tank. It's not easy to set up an aquarium in Portugal, the equipment is expensive and the livestock isn't beautiful, so I travel regularly to the coral propagation farms in Germany to acquire what I have today. I'd like to see my tank distinguished on the Age of Aquariums.
