Mr.Gaboozlebag~ Some pics of my SW tanks

I posted on your thread and thought I would just post it here as to not take away from yours. It's like a puzzle...you want to lift up the rock so the water can flow through and around the structure. It will keep any dead spots from occuring. Keep it tucked away from the glass on all sides. Leave a trough down the back for fish to hide,swim and for waterflow as well. Tell you what..you help me with this hobby..and I'll help you with salt.

My most recent tank pics


























For the plant lovers..this is the main filtration for the last tank~refugium.

SWEEET!

I worked at a saltwater shop that had 50,000+ gallons (Inland Aquatics) for 4 years and I've always loved to see this sort of stuff though I've never tried it myself. Everything looks really healthy - good job!

Stunning......absolutely stunning....and I have a saltwater prejudice.....had should I say......

Very nice photography on some pictures....especially that coco worm....

How large is the refugium?

I remember hearing pipefish were impossible to keep.....then again I don't know jack sh*t about saltwater.....

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....

I can't shake the feeling that that starfish is making a derogatory gesture toward us.

Thanks everyone for the nice posts.
Mr. Belvedere the refugium is a 29 gal., it returns by gravity to the display so that the microscopic critters don't get chopped up by a pump. Fish like the mandarins and pipefish eat them.
Mr. G, I have only been in salt since feb 03'..it is an extreme addiction though. I work at a saltwater LFS parttime, and have been reading as much as my brain can absorb since I started.
Endparenthesis..no no..he would never do such a thing. He's just showing off his beautiful color by sitting next to that pink goniopora.
Robchuck..don't I know you? That is a male Bellus angel, the female is below him..sorry for the crummy pic, he is new and that is one of the only shots I have gotten of him so far. He's being a little uneasy for me though and has'nt really eaten since I got him. So yesterday I took him out of the 65 and put him in the 75. My plan is to give the semi-aggressive tank the 75 gal when I move, sell or give away the 65, and get a 180 or bigger for the occupants of the 75. My little nano cube is a fun little tank and has some cool inverts in it. It gives me the least problems of the three tanks, and it should be the most difficult.

Probably from SWF.com?? I remember seeing your screenname there quite often several years ago. It seems that alot of us reefers have crossed over into FW planted tanks!

What a beautiful fish! I can't recall ever seeing even a picture of a male Bellus, but I've seen plenty of females. Genicanthus angels are my favorite, and I'd love to have a pair of Swallowtails someday.

Yep..that's it swf. I am still there, but as promisetbg. They kicked a few of us off because Terry from the disease forum invited us to his forum. Fish forum drama..LOL
Cardinal Tetra thank you. They were pricey . I could have saved some $$ and gotten the female where I work, but finding a healthy male is another story. I got both of these shipped to me by someone I can trust that QT's and gets them eating. The tiny red fish are an Eviota sp. known as Trimma Gobies.
