My 100Gal progressive reef pics
 
Hi all, I just found this forum and decided to join. I've been in this hobby well over 16 years or so and have travel the world searching out great looking reef tanks. I've been to quite a few places and have made alot of friends in the hobby all over the US and Europe just by using forums like this communicating. hopefully i'll meet a few friends here too. Anyhow below I'll post a few pics from last year till now. This tanks is 100 gallons, an upgrade from the old and is just over 1 year old.

welcome to the forum.

Thanks. I really don't have a accurate stocking list but here's what i know i have as far as fish

4 anthasias
1 yellow tang
1 four line wrasse
2 chromis
2 banana wrasse
1 blood shrimp
1 cleaner shrimp


I probably will add some more fish in the future but iwas focusing mostly on corals at the moment.
