That was funny. I know they can be a little inconsistent at times.
But seriously, I wrote this article because I set this tank up using logical reasoning. After watching a pet store set up a 4 gal
. reef tank, by plucking live rock and animals from other tanks, and setting it up in a half hour. I figured, how hard could it be? So I did the same thing, and it worked. I have my 3 gal
. reef tank at my desk at work. Every time people visit my office they think its fake. "That must be a plastic star fish, etc." It really freaks them out when they start to see the things move. The first question I get is "O.K
. how did you do it?," so I started writing it down.
I know it flies in the face of conventional aquatic wisdom, but I think it is very practical and logical. No matter what, I knew most people on this site would hate it, but somebody will give it some thought. It's just an alternate school of thought, to help get over the fear of saltwater.
Everybody is so opinionated in the hobby, its nice to be open-minded some times. Everything posted becomes controversial. Just try it. If it doesn't work, you will have proved me wrong.
Also, I posted some photos in my gallery on this site. Please check them out. (I think you have to click on my profile button)
P.S. If you notice some animals changing in the photos, it because I have a 50 gal
. at home. Sometimes I think something will look better in the home tank, and snatch it.
