Default The Official Asylum Reef Tank Thread

Many of our brothers here keep reef tanks.
I was talking to Dan (hardcz) on the phone tonight about how nice it would be if we had a thread where we could all show off our tanks, talk about what we're doing, share our stock, ask questions, give answers, and enjoy each other's ideas.
So here it is.
I love my reef and it's come along dramatically with the help of all the gentlemen here and at CS. I know you guys love your tanks as much as I do, I'm very much looking forward to seeing what you all have to share.

I'm going to go get some pics of my setup right now to get this thing started.
Have fun!!!
Scott

You talked me into it.

Here is my 90 and a video of my Eel eating. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4ZwRQIPDyo


in it is a maroon clown (Barter) a clown goby (Jaws)and a Zebra moray eel (Leela). Tomorrow im going to be adding either a flame angel, coral beauty or one spot fox face.





Here is my former reef tank that is getting a total overhaul now. I lost most of the livestock and corals in a tank crash about 4 months ago and have been really out of the hobby.

How about those of us with saltwater tanks that are not reefs?
I love Angels.
Angels love reefs.
That would mean they eat my reef.

Boy did you spark an interest here. I had a thread like this on "another" site. Glad you did it here.

Here goes:
225 Gallon Fish Only/Bleached Coral

You have to go diving over 150 deep to catch one of these, hence their hefty price also.

Foot long Red Sea Blonde Naso Tang with streamers.
One of my favorites.
I call it "puta" for all the make up on its face.

Wow, there are some great pictures here. I've always been fascinated by the hobby, but never evolved past my 10 gallon pedestrian tank that I had many years ago.

The Black Tang would be a lot less rare if they shipped well. One onf the main reasons they command such a hefty price is they do not ship well and those that arrive alive wont eat. I am very glad you are not having problems with yours. They are a VERY beautiful fish although probally the most aggressive from the Zebramosa family.

He was the pick of the litter.
My son worked for a major importer at the time and that is where they all came from.
Has been with me over 7 years.
Only thing I dislike is that as they age, they get more grey to them.

There is always a simple fix for aggressive fish that always tames them.
Place them in the tank small and have other, bigger aggressive fish in there with them as well.
My Angels keep him in line.
Being in the business for quite some time, designing, installing and maintaining high end tanks, I was lucky to learn lots of tricks on introducing them and compatibility that goes against the norm.

He got aggressive on me years ago and I took care of it.
Stuck him in plastic bottle, with holes in it for water flow and left him in the open overnight.
He was as docile as could be the next day and ever since.

A more rare version of the common Fox Face, the Magnifica.

haha nice! I have only seen a Clarion Angel once in my time as a reefer. they were demanding 3.5k and the one they had was full grown and its colors were pretty dull. If you are in the mood for another awesome rare addition look for a Gem Tang. They have the ame personality as the Black Tang but they dont lose color as they age.
