Description: My brother-in-law and I have just recently taken this tank over from our father (in-law), so the details are a little new to us. This area is going to need to be updated when we find out all of the information. - Tank - 190 Gallon (60"x30"x24") 3/4" glass - Lighting - Giesemann 400/400 Plus - Large Ultraclear 200WD Clearwater FL wet/dry sump filter. - Deltec AP 600 Protein Skimmer - Pentair Aquatics QL Series UV Sterilizer - Mini-Calcium MPCCR Calcium Carbonate Reactor - Kent Marine 120gpd Hi-S Reverse Osmosis Unit - 2 Powerheads
Advice: Be patient and take your time. Although it's tempting, resist the temptation to throw a bunch of fish and corals in your newly devoloping tank.
Fish Kept: At this time, our sad list consists of: 1 Percula Clown fish 2 Yellow Tangs 1 Squirrelfish 1 Blonde Naso Tang 1 Blue Devil Damsel
Corals/Plants: Gold Maxima Clam Star Polyps Mushroom Polyps A white one A coral that looks like a mutated hand (if any knows please let us know)

Quote: Live for today.
About Yourself: I got into the hobby back in 2001 in the summer between high school and college. I got a great deal on a 40 gallon Eclipse setup and slowly built up a beautiful functioning marine setup. 3 years later that entire setup was stolen by my landlord (long story) and I've been without ever since. Now, 3 years after that, my father-in-law is tired of taking care of his $20,000+ marine haven and passed the responsability onto myself and his son. We've been in charge of this tank for 3 weeks now (Jan. 22/07) and I've got to say it feels amazing to stick my hand into a mini saltwater world again... especially one this beautiful!
