It’s been one year since I set up a reef tank and I think I’m finally ready to show it to the world and share my experiences with fellow hobbyists. It’s been a year of up’s and down’s and the tank is by no means perfect but it has been tremendously fulfilling, challenging and educational. I’ve been keeping fish since childhood but a year in marine has taught me more than a lifetime. The salty side is full of surprises and the surprises never end. I’ve had success (with corals) and failures (with fish) and battles (with marine ich). I made beginner mistakes and eventually corrected them and I’m still learning. My tank isn’t the best and I’m not an expert by any means but currently the tank is healthy and disease free. I don’t believe in still pictures since they never really tell the true story so I’ve put my money where my mouth is and posted a video of my tank (besides I’m a lousy photographer and don’t own a camera). Special shoutout to my boys from Bombay –Weylin (GatorX) and Ajay (Dashrath). They’v e valiantly accompanied me on this roller coaster ride and patiently endured every mood of mine. Thanks boys. Many wads of cash and many losses and lessons later I present to you my reef tank.

thanks bettaji- it's 4 1/2 x 2 x 1
Nirav - the seahorse is in the fuge part of the sump where it's doing great. There's too much flow and food competition in the main tank for it to thrive. Initially I fed it daphnia but now it's eating live bloodworms. I must say though they have to be the slowest eaters in the animal kingdom. The tank is a room divider so I can't block the background but I agree about the weak colors. It looks great at night but I had to take the video at noon since that's When the corals open fully.
Thanks Krishna but it's not hard to maintain at all
