Hello All


This is my main tank


TANKPAGE WITH CLOSEUPS OF ALL OF THE CRITTERS

YOU CAN ALSO SEE IT ON MY SITE BY USING THE BANNER AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST

Some of the creatures that live here


Here is the tech nitty gritty for the reefs geeks among us.

220gal

2X 250w MH 14000k with standard ballasts,

red sea skimmer.

45 gal sump with 55w pc 24/7

Kent bio-sediment and lots of Macro in sump

7 in deep sand bed - 300 lbs of live rock.

xenia, mushrooms, star polyps, carpet anemone, leathers and asst hard coral.
I have purchased a lot from the Reef Tank and Marine Scene.

Asst small fish. 150 hermits and 50 snails 15 sand sifting stars and hundreds of tiny brittle stars and tiny bristle worms.

1 tsp Kalkwasser, 2 drops Kent lugols, 8 drops Kent strontium
& molybdenum in 2 gallon of make-up water every morning.

1 tsp Caribsea aragomilk ever night.

I feed the tank a lot.
For the coral: DT's mixed with Marc Weiss* black powder and spectra vital.

For the fish: brine shrimp and krill and squid mixed in a food processer. I then add garlic and a very strong anti-oxident called OPC3. It is made from red wine extract.

I overfeed a little but the large amount of clean-up crew (see above) takes care of any waste and all of the macro takes care of of any overload that feeding would cause.

*I know all of the stories (pro & can) about this stuff. I have done a lot of lab grade testing (In my prop systems) of this stuff and color, growth and overall health is always better when I use it. The combination of these two products will change the color and polyp extension for the best looking coral.

I am redoing most of my system so I will post pics as soon as I am done
