I enjoyed that video much more, by far. I was able to see more detail of each fish. Amazing color going on in that tank. I really like that Cuban Hogfish. I can't say when I've ever seen one. They don't have one in any of the tanks at our nearby Seaworld or Scripps Birch aquarium, at least that I have seen and I pretty much scour each tank with my eyeballs. One word, "Wow".

PS. Did you aquire your majestic Angelfish as a juvenile? If so, at what stage of their lives to their colors change?

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I purchased my Majestic after its adult color was already present. Sometimes in captivity the color pattern will not change from juvenille to adult, and I didn't want to take a chance!

Ahhh... but as you know, the Majestic and Blue Face are rumored to be worthy of reef risk!

WOWza!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE IT!!! All your fish are GORGEOUS!!!!!

Love the Clarkii. I know they are common, but if I would not have been outvoted by the rest of the family I would have a pair of Clarkiis or Cinnamons.

Is your Sailfin fully grown?? How big is he?

An update on my tank. On 7/15/2012 I took the tank apart. Curse of the fishkeeper, I get bored after a few years of the same setup. The fish were doing great and I really enjoyed this tank, but the desire to do a freshwater heavily planted live plant tank caught up to me. I will do a build on this tank in the plant forum here at TFK.

The fish were all found proper homes with experienced fishkeepers, minus a few common varieties that were returned to the LFS. Curiously, the Clarkii Clown was missing, I have no idea when he disappeared or why.

I hope you've all enjoyed this build as much as I did. And I hope I don't look back and regret taking this tank down! Now, on to a new challenge, freshwater live plants...

good luck with the new tank i'm sure it will be everything and more.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
