Well, I finally got some pictures taken of my tank. I have been into reef tanks since I was 13(that was 2 years ago)
We first started with a 40g system, now there is about 390 gallons of salt water in the house

I have had this tank set up for 1 1/2 years or so.



It's NOTHING compared to some of the tanks here, but like SptfireXIV said, it's gettin there

Here is my 29g at the one year mark. It's unfortunate that shortly after this picture was taken I lost almost everyting.


Here it is at the two year mark after things started turning around for the better.

It's not eggcrate. It's a garden cloth inserted into a scrren door frame cut to the demensions of the top of my tank.
Very easy to build, and all the materials needed are at Lowes or HD.





Alot nicer looking than eggcrat IMO, and easy to remove for feeding and cleaning the tank.

Thanks dzhuo...I think taking pictures of my reef is harder than taking care of the reef itself!

Thank you, Markieb.
The photos below are not for the show case, just the technique used.

I'm also trying to use eggcrate to make some amount of LR in the tank flat, creating more swimming place for a big fish. Planned to look like this (plus corals and algae):

Ended unfinished, like this:

Will continue, as LR become freed with liquidation of some small tanks.
Did exactly the same, as described in Ignasi Torralba 16g tank, but with no corals to cover wall at once, the zip ties are visible.
Eggcrate is held by on the door hangers (pressed to the back wall). If only I could secure the frags at place.

Not much to look at yet but most of the sps are frags and so in a large tank they really look tiny, but i'm hoping in a couple years they will mature and really look nice.

left side, note the Gigas is around 15+" for scale

Not much to look at ? I am still staring at it. The tank looks great. Ahh 600 gallons. I wish my 75 had 525 more gallons...

Thanks guys, the gorgonian is some kind of carribean sea fan, I've had it for probably 8 months now its maybe 13" in diameter, everybody always comments on it, apparently they are rare in the trade?

Nice tank I like that you have a very nice amount of fish and the way you kept the tank open for them. Clam is awesome as well I think you need a Sohal in there.

See I am not mean Reefkoi
