Well, I figure I should start off with the fact that I am addicted to saltwater collecting. I have a 120g tank with 40g sump, I will list equipment later I just figured I would upload some pics of the tank thus far :P
Here is a pic of the tank in my room, the stand was a diy project that me and my dad built, and I must say we did a nice job.
Full view shot
This rock use to have a nice size hole in it for my blue hippo to sleep in, well now its covered in zoas :P
A pic of my rapidly growing blue hornets curteous of MyNemises
My favorite coral in my tank is the Aussie red with blue polyps goniopora
Heres a nice maxima I bought at the MASM swap
An elegance coral my girlfriend found and picked out at the MASM swap
Nice size colony I purchased from fishdoctors that had over taken my overflow
Had to put this picture in, this use to be my kenya tree forest before I got tired of them over taking my tank\
Had this fish for about a year but sadly died while I was on vacation I had him eating out of my hand
Had this shrimp since I started the hobby this pic was back when I had cyano
Here is a recent video of my tank it has changed a tad

Heres my sea apple I had successfully kept for 3 years, unfortunatly died due to heater malfunction but I removed before damage had been done.
A pic of my old jawfish at the perfect moment
A picture of my Leopard wrasse when I first got him, he is currently eating pellets, mysis, nori, and anything he feels is food, she is a healthy little girl
Oh I will, when I get my doctorates degree I plan on having a professionally done 1000g tank some day :P but for right now I am loving my 120 and just recently I just caught the zoa/paly itch so hornets are the first down then who knows I might go on to the super heros then idk just gotta have em all lol.
Thanks, for me it seems that it is only a 1000th of the way to being finished with coral and equipment, the tank still looks unnatural to me and I can't wait for the day that it looks not man made like some peoples tanks.
