About the Tank Owner

I stumbled upon this hobby accidentally and it has been rewarding beyond measure. I'm thankful to learn about reefs in general and have also taken up photography as a result. I want to thank all my friends that I've had the privilege to meet over the years and the support of SCMAS (Southern California Marine Aquarium Society) over the years. Living in Southern California is truly a blessing for someone who loves this hobby.

I'm a huge advocate of coral farming. With all the current technology this hobby has developed, there is tremendous ability for anyone to grow these unique animals which are dying everyday in our natural ocean. I believe if enough people take part to learn about these animals and how they live and thrive, these creatures can be saved whether it's in captivity or in their natural habitat.

Additional Notes
  • Problems Overcome With System: Red turf Algae - I overcome this problem with a couple of black long spine urchins, which chewed through all my live rock and stripped it bare in order for coraline algae to colonize. I'm happy to say I've been algae free for over a year.
  • Things You Like Best About System: I love it's simplicity, other than the standard equipment such as skimmer, circulation pumps, 2 part supplements dosed by a Profilux 4 channel doser, there's really no high tech gadgets to run this tank. Each critical components is simple and effectively reliable.
  • Anything Special Unique About System:
    • The tank sits in the center of the house, straddled by a load baring wall as the divider between the entry way, kitchen, living room. It is always the focal point of any gathering event small or large.
    • I'm often complimented on the health and activity of the fish, but also the aquascaping I've laid out since the tank's inception 5 years ago.
  • Overall Positives: Simple, custom fit location, open aquascaping, thriving inhabitants.
  • Overall Negatives:
    • The Large overflow is a distraction, when I replace the tank I will redesign the overflow to be more hidden.
    • Add more wave making flow.
