Great, a healthy coral is a happy coral!

Good. Finished the last of the FOWLR show tank yesterday. It's huge. Lol. I'll have to take a pic for you guys. Lol. We have some stock in now. Just one last tank to tweak before I will put corals in it. Then we open on Saturday. I've never been so crazy in my life. Lol.

Here are the tanks I've set up over the last couple months. All the stands were custom built by my husband and his buddies.


This is the FOWLR show tank. It's 365 gallons.


Here are some of its inhabitants...






The pics are a little cloudy because the slippery dick wrasse loves to kick up some dirt. Lol

Here is the reef show tank. It's 90 gallons.

Here is the main holding tanks.


I have to install the rest of the lighting tomorrow. everything is plumed so that it is all on the same system.

This is the 300 gallon tank for the corals. This is by far my favorite tank in the shop as far as design. It's almost completely cycled (tomorrow should be done) and then I will start adding livestock over the next 5 days.





I also have an invert tank system that is 150 gallons but it's nothing fancy. Just 16 small tanks all linked up to the same system.

So what do you guys think?

Looks really nice!! I'm a custom cabinet guy, and that display looks really first-rate. Great idea with the shelving on the sides for stock. It resembles my entertainment center, but w a huge tank instead of a flat screen!
The Queen and the Trigger are stunning , as is the reef tank.
Fingers crossed for you!!
