Look What I Found at a Chinese Restaurant...Take 2

I was dining at a local Chinese restaurant for Christmas dinner, guess what I found! Well, it's been there for awhile, just decided to post it now

It seems around 4-5 ft long, anywhere from 55-90 gallons approx. I think it is stocked with two damsels, an ocellaris clown, and a tomato clown. They have a trickle filter, and a lot of sump/fuge/overflow work in the bottom cabinet. Also a sea urchin. Enjoy!

Why is it that the chinses food/sushi places usually have the cool tanks? That thing is sweet! The clown in the top right of the 1st pic looks huge, is it really a tomato?

Fish have been seen as lucky in China since ancient times. Supposed to bring prosperity to businesses. Fishkeeping as we know it began in China!

Of course it is, that's why it was posted in the FOWLR and FO section

No, none.

That is a tomato clown? I thought tomatos were more rounded, orange, and had a white head.

I heard it began with ponds in Egypy used to harvest fish for crocodile gods and what not and then the wealthy civilians had fish in their houses as a symbol of money.

I assume the second clown in the first picture is. I don't ID SW and am not SW myself, I am just going off what I have barely seen of SW fish.
