An aptasia farm. Maybe he can sell frags of it and make a fortune, huh??? Yeah, right.

Didja notice the writeup? "I'M INCLUDING ALL THE ACCESORIES TO MAINTAIN THIS TANK TOO SUCH AS (RED SEA SALT, CARBON, 4 BRUSHES, MAGNET CLEANER, THONGS, SCOOP NETS..."

Got thongs too? Ooooh. Sexy!

It would take years of work to make a tank look like that. Now, if he was using that tank for breeding berghia nudibranches he might get a buyer.

the funniest part is where he talks about how well it has grown and the awesome growth in the tank... like its a good thing. i just wonder if somebody should call the poor guy and warn him that his tank looks horrendous

They were healthy so the price should be more. Most people dont let more than two or three come around. You have to work to let that many build up. Thats hard to over look.
