C'mon people, there have got to be more softie tanks than this!

Lost most of the corals and fish when the front seam leaked last year. This is what it looks like now. I need to get a new camera.

jay2525, Here are a few shots of the 220 softie tank you asked about. Note the dates and how some of the softies have been fragged and have regenerated within a few months. Feel free to check out her website.

That is a beautiful soft coral tank. It is nice to see something other than the SPS dominated tanks. Personally I think they're highly overrated. I like a good balance between hard and soft corals.

Thanks for sharing.:)

thanks racing1...... I find this as nice as any sps tank and more interesting.....thanks again

All corals are created equal.

I can check with her but I know Lighting is via a Hamilton setup. I am pretty sure it is 3 X 250 MH and 2 160 watt vho...

AVALover5498 11/07/2007 02:58 PM

What size tank is that Racing1?


crabbejoe 11/23/2007 06:43 PM

Very cool tanks blide. Someday my tanks will look like that. .. I hope. :)

aninjaatemyshoe 11/23/2007 08:31 PM

Blide, I love that last tank. Even though it is not colorful, it just looks so organic. I can only imagine how cool that tank looks with everthing in motion.

I've just got two little nanos....a 29 and a 15. Not much coral at the moment, though I may be picking some up from a friend tomorrow.....hammer coral and some hairy shrooms....can't wait !
I'm hoping to get these two to measure up to some of the beauts that have been posted thus far ! :D

My 29...




The 15....I had moved the star polyps over into this tank at some point....

Here is my soft coral tank, It is a 40 gallon bare bottom. I add nothing to the tank except for RO/DI makeup water added daily on a dosing pump and monthy 7 gallon water changes. Sorry, its not the best camera.
