I wish my stuff would stop growing....

I'm the laziest reefer here guaranteed. I do water changes a couple times a year and I neve add anything to the tank other than tap water. I've had most of the fish for 5 years. The tank has been running forever. A broken Ramora that barely skims is my only export.

I agree time to frag if things are getting to "much" for you.

Looks like most of the species in the tank are lagoonal and do like dirtier water. Whatever the case, everything seems to like the conditions.

I wish I had the problrm of things growing too fast.

Good job !

tang named junkyard, how come you post the same picture every few months and claim that your tank keeps thriving even though you continue to neglect it etc. It's the very same pictures over and over again. Next, you will post a picture of your stand with the doors opened to show how you have no sump or fuge etc. In the past year I have seen you post the same pictures and more or less the same speech at least twice, this being the third time. Anyone who bothers to check your profile and search all your posts can see this bizarre repetition of the same theme by you every few months. What's up with that?

This clearly isn't neglect. It's his way of doing things and it's proven to be successful.

Looked back at the other threads and a lot of the corals have grown quite a bit since July. Looks like what your doing is working for your tank. I take a pretty minimalist approach, too. To each their own.

Because this system works for these types of corals. Even though you may have seen it, others may have not. If I can save some reefers some money and get them out of the idea they need to have complex reefs to enjoy this hobby, than it's worth it. I use to be the crazy reefer. I tested every other day, always worried about things going wrong, overdosed. I've done it all. I really wanted to post this time because I wanted to get rid of some stuff is someone lived in my area. Sorry you got so offended on me posting my tank with no equipment, lol. Do you get upset when people post their tanks with tons of equipment attatched over and over again?

I'm using the 4x65 light kit that cost 179. simple

I love it four 65w on a 90 with corals. I have wanted to turn my 90 fowlr into a easy to keep reef,(shrooms, polyps) and have been turned down because every one says to get MH fixtures. I don't want to get a chiller or the new electric bill.
Thanks for posting.

power compacts. Looks like they raised the price a little. They go on sale from time to time.

you know, it looks like some things are just taking over. If you need to get rid of some things LMK. Depending on where you're at shipping may not be that bad.

No coralline growth/no scraping glass? Looks great. I'm just the opposite of you. I love to tinker, and have technology. One thing i would reccomend would be to have a dark background, to have everything pop out more. Great tank though. I love the frogspawn. everything is growing great. Congrats

This is not the correct forum to discuss fragging and trades. That will get the thread closed quickly.
