Quick specs on the tank: 92 gallon corner acrylic bowfront, 30 gallon sump/fuge, running 2x250 10k MH, 4x65 w VHO's. I constantly drip kalkawasser (not for long calcium reactor is on the way). I dose very very little iodine (for the clams).
This tank has been a labor of love. I originally bought this tank from a local doctor that had the tank in his office. I watched the tank for him several times when he was away. he just did not have the time to tend to the tank. I got a call one day and he said his return pump broke and he was fed up. he told me to come get all the stock out of the tank. I asked him to sell it to me. I told him to give me a price he said $500.00. I said I will be there in 5 minutes. Well it took 13 hours to move that sucker. Well come to find out he had a snail in the return and I quickly fixed that!! I set the tank up and got it stabilized. the first 2 months was constantly fighting aptasia!!! I have had this tank for approx 6 months and I think it has come a long way. I will post some pics so you can see the progression this tank has taken.
The critters in the tank: Hippo tang, Sailfin tang, Yellow tang, Lawn mower blenny, 6 line wrasse, perc clown. cleaner shrimp, 2 maxima clams. had a bangai cardinal and 4 chromis. gave them to a friend.
corals in the tank: pulsing xenia (grows like weeds), palythoas, ricordea, blue mushrooms, hairy green mushrooms, various zoanthids, green and red digitata, plating montipora, maze brain, hydnophora, cup coral, encrusting green monti, green millipora, favia, red blastos, green star polyps.
