About Yourself: i have been keeping aquariums for over 20 years past 2-3 years I have been seriously into the reef tank hobby. I now work full time in the Aquarium maintenance buisness.


Love the Heniochus Butterfly fish. Tried keeping some in my reef with no luck. They munched on my corals. They were suppose to be Heniochus Diphreutes which are suppose to be "Reef Safe", but think I might have got Heniochus Acuminatus instead which are not reef safe. Very hard to distinguish between the two species. Especially as juveniles. fish avatar
I am not a reef freak, but I think you have a real beauty here. I gave you a 10, I love the fact that the fish are actually visible in the shot of your tank. My favorite part of aquarium keeping are the fish, I have been into freshwater for only five years as of yet. Keep up the hard work, it shows. fish avatar
