I haven't gotten around to uploading the new pics. to the PC yet but I figured, what the heck, I might as well show what it used to look like and next week I can show what a difference a couple years makes. This is when I first started 5 years ago
I did start with a 36 gal. but after 6 months my tank shrunk so I got a 55 gal.
For me, it was a very bad choice because when I tried to clean the glass, I would move or break something because there is only 12 inches from the front of the tank to the back.
I still have all of these corals except the plate coral kicked the bucket. I also have most of these fish. The only one in the pic. that I don't have is very hard to see. He is" SLY" the fox face rabbit fish to the lower right.He got so big that I traded him in at my LFS. I still have "Midnight"," Banana" and "Grandma" I'll let you guys figure out who is who. LOL
Then after a year, I couldn't take it any more and I only had a 4 ft. area to fit the tank and I had PCs and didn't want to spend more $ on new lights, so I got the 75 gal. and not the 90 gal. I'm still happy with my choice.I feel at this point, my tank is perfect for me.I mean now, not in this next pic.
This is a side view from almost 2 years ago. If you look at my RBTA real close you can see my 2 clowns "Happy", named because he was VERY HAPPY, when I got him the RBTA and of course, the other clown is named, OK, on 3,------ 1,2,3 NEMO!! Yea, my sons 11 so it's not my fault!! These guys spawn EVER 18 days or so. the most they have gone is 3 weeks before spawning. I wish I had the time, patience and room for another tank to raise the young but at least they feed my fish once a month
Am I boring you guys yet? I hope not. Next, I just have some random shots that I like.
This is "Nemo" in a night shot
This is "Peppy" My pet spider monkey from a long time ago!!! I don't know how he got in this fish forum???
This is "Rosy" and son" This is the first time that I finally got up the bal, I mean nerve to cut that huge thing in half. Well as you can see, the operation was a success and I sold one. I'll be doing it for the 3rd time soon
This is "Pinkie" My Talbots Damsel, OK, I can here the groans about the name but come on, some of the names are good. How about "SLY" the fox face? and "Banana" Well ? My son named him but I like it!!
This is a cool Hitch hiker Sponge that came out of nowhere.
Banana and my Yellow scroll which is now huge compared to this!
This is a pair of "Duck fish that I did"
This is my Mom thinking, "Boy, he's not as dumb as I thought he was"LOL
I love this Pic. of "Happy" and "Rosy"
I leave you with a pic. of a few of my babies swimming off into the sunset!
