    Default Back into Reef Tanks

    So a couple of years ago due to water shortage here in CA I had to re-evaluate my discus breeding and begin to diversify with other fish. I branched out to guppies, angels, and plecos and now have finally gotten back into saltwater reefs. I still have discus, guppies, angels, and plecos just not to the extent that I had before. Just wanted to share pictures of my tank that has been set up for about a year. It also had an 85% crash / wipe out in December 2018 where I lost almost all my fish and coral. So current pics are as of today about 7 months after the crash. It has since recovered and I am getting about 1/4-1/2 inch of growth on some of the corals per month. The only thing about this particular tank that I really don't like is that it is a show tank and also a tank to sell out of so it is constantly changing the way it looks. Only a few parent colonies that I frag are permanent fixtures in this tank. Still fun to play with and perfect my coral keeping skills. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

    Hi Bill, I would say that is a wildly successful tank. Everything looks nice, healthy with good growth.

    As an ex-reef keeper, I can say that you've got some very nice specimens in there.

    Perhaps a bit rude, but that tank looks functional rather than aesthetic. Another year should serve it well.

    How big is that tank 10 ft? looks big

    Thanks for the share.

    Thanks I do have some prize corals in there.
    And no not rude al all in my opinion, it is a working tank. I would never have frag racks in my personal show tank especially on the front glass. It is a grow and sell and import and sell tank. Can't wait to move so I can get my own show tanks up and running again. A 165 , 120, and 88 gallon with a 200 gallon frag system.
    Tank is a 125 that is packed to the max. 6 feet long.
