Absolutely gorgeous! I've got loads of 4' & 5' aquariums all over the place, but they're all fresh water. I used to run Co2 and do all the high light, lots of micro/macro ferts etc. but it drove me insane, I'm no chemist.

The thought of saltwater tanks terrifies me, its so exacting & full on chemistry so I admire anyone who even dares to try, much less turns out a masterpiece as you're clearly on your way to doing. Fantastic effort & very, very beautiful corals. I can only dream, or live vicariously thru yours so keep posting lots of pics

Dee you can go out in your own backyard and see most of these! I am so jealous.

Thanks! We love it. It is primarily my husband's baby but I have my hand in it too. The chemistry can be a pain but not as bad as I thought it would be. We are considering going bigger. Our current tank is 66 gallsons. Looking at 150-200 gallons

Absolutely beautiful! Saltwater tanks are so relaxing. I used to have a 100 gallon flat back hexagon tank. I was like you and the chemicals are a pain but not as bad as I thought they were going to be. I really want to get another tank soon.

I love saltwater and sure miss mine *sigh*... although I dealt alot in Rare Corals, the simple common Sun Coral was my favorite...I love the way they open up the mouth and eat...they love the krill.......I kept them FAT n' HAPPY ....lol........

I am hoping to start mine back up next yr.... maybe 125 gal!!

the bigger the tank the easier it is to take care of, IMHO... the chemicals/ph...don't change as fast as a smaller tank.......

That is what we have heard and honestly the Aussie is growing like a weed and soon will not fit in our 66gal. The Sun Coral and the Aussie are my husbands two favorites!
