my 46 gallon bow front

let me start off my saying as i'm sure most of you are, i am OBSESSED with my aquarium. i watch it much more than my television. its 46 gallons, reef and fish. i have 2 96-watt compact fluorescent bulbs over it, (although i really wants some T-5's). I keep 2 hang on the back power filters on it, mostly because i do plan to go bigger, and i'm not building a sump for this tank. they do the job well as long as i keep up with cleaning the filter and partial water changes every 2 weeks (common sense).

Fish: yellow mimic tang, purple firefish, leopard wrasse, scooter dragonet, spotted mandarin, 2 zebra bar gobies, 2 bangaii cardinals, pajama cardinal, 3 horrible damsels i can't get out, engineer goby, 2 false percula clownfish

It has probably 50 lbs of liverock.

Coral: great big frogspawn pink/green, small anchor, tons of zoa's!, tonssssss of mushrooms, fuzzy, spotted, ricordia, every color pretty much, 2 leathers, 4-headed duncan, green turbinaria, and a small chalice.

Pictures! Enjoy & comment, Tabitha.

Nice pictures. Like the Frogspawn!

Keep an eye on those water parameters. That's a seriously large load of fish you got in there.

2 Aqua Clear 50's. I know it isn't ideal but as i mentioned we plan to get a bigger tank so theres no sense in building a sump for this one. One of the Aquaclears has a bag of Chemi Pure in it, and some Poly Filter cut-your-own pad. The other is empty with pieces of rubble live rock in it.
