softie dominated tanks ... lets see em
 
In the process of putting a 120 together, I am definitly not doing an SPS Tank but I still dont know if I want to do a softie dominated tank becuase it kind of lacks color and is pretty bland.

Lets see some pics of your softie dominated tanks and change my mind!

I have tons of mushrooms and zoa's in my tank, but no leathers. I do have sps also, but I thought you might want to see the mushrooms.

Niiice tank, I was leaning towards a zoo/shroom tank aswell but I think Zoo's altough my favorite coral might not do so well in my setup and instead I want some colorful softies to take it place.

Reefer Wannabe 04/28/2006 08:35 PM

Nice looking tank bradleyj.
My photography skills aren't very good , but here is a 6month picture of mine.

I can't believe you would think softies creat a bland coloring. look at all the colorations of zoo's and shrooms alone. not to metion leathers and trees. i used to think wow ive got 4 diffrent types of shrooms in my tank no more, then i see a ricordia i have to have boom theres another , o think now im up to like 10 diffrent colors of shrooms, no bland in this tank, no cam to take pics but softies are anything but bland and un colorful

slave-of-rock 04/30/2006 12:35 AM

So true! I have about 25-30 zoa color morphs (mostly frags as you can tell from my pic) and 10-15 different mushroom color morphs! There are hundreds of zoa color morphs, the same with mushrooms and rics. More beautiful then SPS imo, but don't let any of those guys in the SPS forum read that :lol:.

I dont consider zoos or mushrooms softys, when you go to a coral website to purchase something they have a different section for rics/shrooms and zoos. At first I wanted to stock my tank with just zoo's/rics and shrooms but know I want some more stuff that is kinda "wavy" i guess so I want to add some softys that arent baige or white.

Bradleyj your tank is awesome

J4Life 05/01/2006 01:23 AM

bradleyj,

Did I read your description right? 65 gallon is your tank size? If so how do you keep all of those fish in that tank? I have 5 now in my 75 gallon and I was thinking that with a CBB and YT that was a bit much.

Nice looking tank by the way and I am not the frickin T policia!

Thanks,
Bill:)

Timothy01 05/01/2006 01:28 AM

it something like 1 inch of fish for every gallon of water, throw in a sump and a fuge increase your water volume. ive seen people run water through a 50 gal rubbermaid trashcan just to add more fish

bradleyj 05/01/2006 08:21 AM

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. I do have alot of fish for a 65g. I've had all of them in my tank for over two years now and they have all tripled in size. I do weekly waterchanges and have a nice skimmer and run ozone , all which help tremendously in keeping these fish healthy. I am in the process right now of setting up my new 225 gal and my tangs and rabbitfish can't wait.

finding nemo 05/01/2006 10:05 AM

Oh cool, the softies forum, finally;)
Here is one of two of my tanks, it is a 75 gallon one year old(after a move of over 1000 miles)

wow I like the look of that macro in there, does your tang keep it under control or do you have to prune alot?
