2 month old 90gal FOWLR

hey all, here's my new 90 gal... i still wanna add a little more rock to it, and definitely more livestock, but I'm taking it slow so I don't cause any trouble.

I'm certainly not just fishing for compliments with this, constructive criticism and alternate aquascaping ideas are absolutely welcomed! I wanted to avoid the straight-up "wall-of-rocks" setup, as the aquarium is placed such that you can look through it, either into the kitchen or into the living room depending on which side you're on.


whole tank, day-time lights on


whole tank, actinic lights only (dawn/dusk)

backed away, shows both the 90gal saltwater and my 46 gal freshwater side-by-side

haha, yeah I think it only looks green because the actinics were the only lights on in that pic :). But the midas blenny is awesome, he was the first fish that I knew I would want to add to my tank.

Great tank. Have the fish from the two tanks ever looked at each other?

thanks :) nah, unfortunately they don't seem to notice one another, I was kind of hoping that they would. The tang and blenny stay mostly on the right-side of the SW tank, and the only other two fish are a pair of clownfish. Sometimes, in the FW tank, my Jack Dempsey will be looking out the right side of his tank towards the other tank, but I can't really tell if he's actually looking into that tank or if he just happens to be staring off to the right.

eh, these were pics of my tank back in Florida before I moved way out to New Mexico (I miss the beach! ) It looks very different now, so unless you really want me to, I probably won't dig up my old pics and re-post. I need to start up a tank thread for my new setup, but I haven't gotten around to it yet
