I do what I know and love and it pays the bills. I used to make more money and work less but was rather miserable. Fortunately there is so many facets to the hobby that I feel there will always be appeal.



Here you can see the newest tanks being setup. I am also setting up another cube style tank I just got from the Local Fish Store,it still has the prices and fish listing written on it.
Both these tanks are cycling and will soon be invert\reef tanks.On the side you can see the power bars being maxed out as there are a few tanks in this corner. Pardon the drippage on the fronts of the tanks,I just moved some rocks and corals from tank to tank.

This is the view looking left from my bed, a couple reef tanks and a couple frag tanks,my head board is further to the left.

Still growing out a bunch of frags to fill in the voids, should be pretty nice with the acro selection and the existing pocillipora.

bare with me as I cannot seem to get my tablet to post pictures right side up...Grrrr!
When you are growing frags do you do any thing extra ? special dosing ? higher salt/calcium content..

I flipped it around for ya...

Thank you,I need to look into why the tablet rotates the picture when posting on forums. As far as the frags go when they are small they are just more prone to getting knocked over and are less forgiving about water changes and infections as they are yet to be established.What you can do when they are frags is create the ideal environment such as flow,lighting, and target feeding very easily wich can speed growth up significantly.

Man, it has been so long since an update on this, some of these frags are now colonies. I have had my ups and downs though, had some acropora eating flat worms for a while there.

Here is a new purchase of mine, a purple goniapora flower pot coral that I will be cutting up on a band saw for a grow out contest. Shes a Beauty Eh?
