Photo Caption:This is a picture of my ricordia that i got for five dollars off of someone that didnt know much about the hobby. I got it the size of a dime and it is now almost 2 inches in length and it has given me two other ricordias! Theres also some mushrooms that are spreading everywhere, A piece of my 2 brains and some polyps.
Description: 90 Gallon all glass reef tank. I have a Nova Extreme Fixture, 8x54 Watts, 4 Actinic and 4 10,000K Daylight Lamps. I use a Wet Dry filtrtion system. I also have a 9 Watt UV Sterilizer, a Protein Skimmer, and Phosphate Reactor. I use a Stealth Heater and my temperature is mostly at 77 degrees. I got two Koralia 2, fans that give out more than enough water flow. That sums up what runs my tank!
Advice: Over all, patience should be your # 1concern When keeping a salt water aquarium. You are gonna want your aquarium looking like everyone elses and want to add everything in at once but the longer you wait and observe the tank, the better! Do monthly water changes and keep your water tested for the essentials and you should be fine!
