    Nice setup. I like the rock work. How long has the tank been running for?

    about 9 years with only about two hours of downtime when i moved. when i moved i moved everything but my tank than my tank was last and the first thing to get set up it took a little less than two hours.

    cool 9 years is a long time. Your water must be so stable.

    If this is the only tank you have I'm pretty impressed that after 9 years, you didnt have the urge to upgrade or have enough self control not to upgrade...

    dont get me wrong i want a large tank but have a family that comes first. may some day i will have the one that i want but for now this will do i still have lots of room in this one. and as for tanks before i was married i had 9 tanks running in my house. but have sold all them in the past few years just to much to keep them all up.

    here are some nice close ups of the corals i have. and i figured out why my clown attacks me when i put my hand in the tank it has hosted with my colt coral. i was watching the tank the other night and there it is sleeping in the middle of it. if i stick my hand any were near it it starts trying to bite me. and it is a tank raised clown.
