My Fish Tank



tankshot033007.jpg

Da da! The long awaited picture of my fish tank. here are the quick stats...

Tank: 36x30x24 braceless starphire glass tank
Lighting: 400watt 10K XM w/ moonlight bulb
Skimmer: ASM G-2 Skimmer
Fishs: Yellow Tang, Flame Angel, Mystery Wrasse, 8x False Percula Clownfishes (yes..8) and a White-Cap Clownfish in my refug.
Corals: Red Yuma, 2 Ritteri Anemones, 1 Sebae Anemone, 8x Rose Anemones (and counting!) and others...

I could talk about the different ideas/plans I had for this tank but it would take awhile as there was many. My current plan for this tank is pretty much an anemone dominated tank. Because anemones get bigger and have the ability to split, I am going to purchase probably a few more anemones and then start feeding them to get them bigger and hopefully split. I'm going to miss going to the fish store when my tank is full...but maybe that means I should get another tank? haha!

I started this tank about 2-3 years ago but never really did much to it until lately. In future posts, I'll talk about setting it up and give more details about my fish tank.

Nice! Wow… 8 clowns? LOL

i actually had more but lost a large batch of them around the same time…i had the bad luck of buying a bad batch of clownfishes. was debating on if i wanted to add more but these 8 are all getting along. they have their hierarchy in place already.

I liked your site a lot, though I am not into Saltwater Tanks. I liked the way you talk about your tanks, the way you express your love towards them!

I have only one suggestion! It would be great if you replace the bowl from your logo with a fish tank! Reasons behind this are, (1) Your site is ‘My Fish Tank’, not ‘My Fish Bowl’, and (2) Most Importantly, bowls are no good for fishes, except small labyrinths like Betta etc. and all fish lover aquarists should discourage people from keeping the poor fishes in tiny bowls! Please check out this article by one of our fellow aquarist.

I hope you don’t mind my friendly suggestions! Happy fish keeping!

Good looking tank – nice shape to – mine is 50*36*24, so similar but a scaled up. How far up do you have the light – what reflector, how is it working for you? I have a multiple 150’s, but am thinking of going to a single 400, but am scared of bad light spread.

i have the lights probably (off the top of my head) 10″ off the water? i originally started with a 20k bulb but i guess there wasn’t enough light penetration for the corals at the bottom. so i went 14K but i don’t think that was enough. so now i’m at 10K which seems to work but i lost that blue light i liked. but you get used to it.

i use one reflector. a PS1 reflector (used for growing plants..but works for corals i guess). supposely gives me a good spread but i sorta can tell there are dead spots around the edges.

do you have a picture of your tank?

can you find all 8 in the picture? haha..

No, my camera is not so good, and I’ve always struggled to get good photos. Plus I moved house 6 weeks ago so it is still establishing again. Maybe some photos soon tho, it doesn’t look bad, just a bit unfinished
