Haven't posted any pics of the tank in a while, getting ready to move it very soon.

Here are a couple pics I snapped lately.

Really good picture of my Red Montipora Capricornis.

The best part of reef keeping is that each of my colonies started with a small fragment or a single polyp of coral, which I grew into the colonies you see.

I also use the coral I grow to trade for other corals, and to barter for other good I need for my tank, makes the hobby affordable. I also like the fact that by growing and propagating corals I am helping the natural reef by promoting aquaculture and coral propagation versus the harvest of wild colonies.

Some nights I dont have to do anything, but thats about how long I spend looking at it ect ect.

You could get away with doing it much faster, but I enjoy it, its part of the hobby.

That tanks only a 37 gallon reef tank. It is considered a "Nano" reef. Much harder to keep than a larger sized reef, but certainly possible if you know what you are doing. Much more rewarding too.

With any tank, the rule is always Dilution is the Solution to Pollution. If you can break this rule then you are in the class of reefers that are experienced enough to keep a smaller tank.

I finally finished moving the tank and re-doing the aquascape. It took over 7 hour just to do the rock work!
