Maybe stresco could elaborate on his tank setup, like size, filtration, cleaning procedures, etc.

I love the way eels breathe. They look scary just breathing!

Dang Aaron, way to put me on the spot!

Ok, don’t laugh, and understand, that I know my tank is small but I live in an upper floor apartment with weak floors.

55Gal, Predrilled All Glass Aquarium
10Gal, Americal Wet\Dry Trickle Filter
10Gal, Refugium
CPR In-Sump Skimmer
2x 175Watt, 20k, Coral Life Metal Halides
16 LED, Moonlight Strip
Mag 7 Return Pump
2x Power Heads
2x 150Watt Heaters
55Watt Plant-Light over fuge
140+ Pounds of LR divided between the tank, filter and fuge
3+ Inches of Southdown in the tank, and in the fuge
3 different kinds of Macro Algae growing in fuge (Don’t ask me what kind)
Colony of Yellow Polyps
4 Ricordia Yumas
2 Pulsing Xenias
Colony of Green Button Polyps
Mushroom Polyps
5 Elephant Ears (Momma and babbies)
Candy Cane
Frogspawn
Alveopora
Maze Brain
Chili Coral
Green Star Polyps
Colt Coral
Fox Coral
Sqamosa Clam
Hawaiian Feather Duster
Blue Linkia Star
Serpent Sea Star (Found him in my overflow wall, after being missing for
6 months)
Chiton (Hitchhiker on LR)
12+ Lettuce Nudibranches (Must have been hitchhikers on something,
they just started popping up)
Harliquen Tusk Fish (Tyson)
Purple Tang (Prince)
Hawaiian Dragon Eel (Bruce)

I think that is everything.

Tyson is a thief, he likes to steal food from Bruce and the frogspawn. Bruce usually takes a bite out of him to get even. Tyson likes to snack on the smaller hermits when he gets a chance. Prince is actually a Tang that likes meaty foods. He will eat the pieces of shrimp that Bruce leaves behind. Bruce is the King. He is the reason I got the tank in the first place. He actually doesn’t knock as much over as you may think. I have more trouble with the Chiton bulldozing my corals, but he gives off a huge bio-load.

As far as feeding, I feed the fish and corals about every 2-3 days. I mix it up between blender mush, flake, frozen and pellet food. I feed Bruce raw shrimp twice a week (that’s all he likes). Although I have never seen him do it, I'm sure that he snags inverts every now and then.

I clean the glass daily with a magnet scraper. I have to top off the tank with about a gallon of RO\DI water every night. I do 15Gal water changes every week. I clean the skimmer, and pumps once a month. I dose the tank with B-Ionic twice a week. And I dose, Iodine, Trace Elements, and Strontium twice a month. That’s about it. HTH

Bravo! Well done! I personally, think you have done wonders with your tank and the inhabitants......especially with the "all in one" start that you got. Not many people could have/ would have had the dedicatation to pull it off.

**** that is one cool looking fish.... Must admit, never was really a big fan of Eels, but that one is cool as hell... Making me re-think of starting up my reef tank and putting him in one of those! 8O

Thanks for the praise HARA, but I owe my success to you and all the knowledgeable reef keepers here on AA. I can never say thank you enough.
