Careys Tank(s) Lots of Pictures, Questions & Thoughts

So I am finally getting around to making a general all around Carey thread for all my tanks. I've been meaning to do it forever. LOL

Currently I have 5 tanks up and running. Four are salt and one is an African Cichild Freshwater Tank.

I'm going to make a post for every tank, just took a bunch of pcitures too so we have some current shots. For those who don't know me I tend to ramble on in my posts and post way too many pictures and videos. LOL

The first tank will be the 90g FOWLR :

I set this tank up a few years ago and have had nothing but excellent luck with it. It is super easy to maintain too. The stand is like 42" tall I believe so it sits eye level with you, it gives you an awesome view. Current occupants:

Blue Eyed Bristletooth Tang
Big Eye Squirrel Fish- (bugeye)
Engineer Goby ( he is HUGE) aka teddy bear
SIxline Wrasse
Lunar Wrasse
Red Coris Wrasse
Banana Wrasse
One Black and White Clown
Flamehawk (Sumo)
Purple Pincushion Urchin
Pencil Urchin


For equipment I have:
Reef ready drilled tank, center overflow
DIY 20g sump, running a filter sock, eshopps psk150 skimmer and have a mag 9.5 return pump. For powerheads I have one Koralia 1400 and an Aqueon 1250. Lighting is simple, odyssea 4 bulb t5's 2 blues and 2 whites.

Here are a bunch pf pictures in the next couple posts.

Sorry this is gonna be soo long. lol

Thanks for reading

That's one grumpy engineer goby haha. Can't wait to see the other tanks and I agree with Mac, it will make keeping up with all the tanks easier

Awesome is the word! I just came across this thread and was so excited I had to skip right to the comments, NOW I am going to read through, LOL. (I guess I do live quite vicariously). This will be fun!
