About Yourself: Aquarist for more than 20 years. Tried reef with this tank but had to work outside the country. (very sad when I euthanized it). This is also an in-house management training for the whole family. Team work plays a vital role in this tank maintenance specially if I only come home on weekends. (Anyway, family members requested to revive this.) Most of us enjoy watching the "foodball" during feeding and non- feeding time. Well, so far, so good, this has been with us for more than 6 months now.
