Photo Caption:I got this coral in January 2009 for FREE. It was given to me by the owner of my lfs. He said I could have it because he highly doubted it would ever grow. Well...when I got it, it was the size of one of the fingers on it now.....Its turned out to be one of my favorites!
Description: My tank is 29 gallons and right at a year old. I have tried to keep my whole setup as natural as possible with filtration and water parameters. I have three fish (two clowns and a six line wrasse) and a number of corals. I have a AquaC Remora Pro, 20 gallon sump with 60lbs of sand, a filter sock to get out debris, a CPR overflow with two outlets to safeguard my tank, and my return pump is a mag drive 9.5 hooked to a scwd to give me switching currents. I have put a lot of time and money into this hobby and it is my passion.
Advice: Be PATIENT. Thats why I got into this, to help me with my patients. You rush and you will fail.
Fish Kept: Two clowns, sixline wrasse, 100ish nassarious snails, sea cucumber, and 4 turbo snails.
Corals/Plants: in my refuge I have brown red and green algaes as well as 60 mangroves. I have acropora, birdsnest,mushrooms,hammer corals, galaxy corals, fungi plate coral, xenia, and even palys and zoas.
About Yourself: Im only 20 years old but I live in Florida an love the florida keys. I like scuba diving and really feel that the reefs should be preserved. I figured it was time to get my own piece of reef in my home so I could enjoy the beauty every day and show people why it needs to be protected. My goal is to have a full blown reef in the top ten on this site and the nicest 29 gallon reef in the world. Its a challenge..........but im up for it.
