This blog is an attempt to document the good, the bad, and the ugly in regard to the new 29 gallon reef tank we are adding to our tank collection. Feel free to click on the photographs for larger views.

Candy Cane Coral - Feeding Time




Erasmus (Wrass)

Various Tank Shots

Switch (Damsel)

Apoch Update...almost 3 years later!

Apoch has certainly grown since my last post, as has his home. The anemone has more than quadrupled in size and has split into multiples, one of which we removed from the tank.

From the Beginning - Part Deux

Now its back to the living room to study all of the new stuff extensively. And yes, fish paraphernalia is expanding to fill the space here (and in every other room of the apartment!).

Now we move to the second bedroom which will become the tank's permanent home. As you can see, this room has been invaded by stuff as well. Don't you use your furniture as a rig for straightening wayward plastic tubing?!

From the Beginning...

Tonight I thought I would fill in the missing pieces in the tank's set-up process. After this you should be up to date. Also, before I forget, Jonathan stumbled onto a great site called The Marine Center while looking for a picture of a Randall's Goby for me. Rich is trying to get me one right now. Thanks Rich!

First package arrives from Doctors Foster & Smith...

Jonathan moves to the kitchen to see how the new skimmer will work with the sump he has been designing.

Our Current 10 Gallon -- Featuring Apoch & Switch

Proof that I am adding water as requested...

Dead "Live" Rock Salvaged from I-65

This rock has not been in a tank since we lost our 45 gallon reef aqarium to Hurricane Ivan back in 2004. Jonathan was transporting it up to our new place in Birmingham when he was involved in an interstate traffic accident. Most of the items he was carrying ended up on the side of the road, but the rock was trapped under a big blanket in his truck and was left unscathed. His truck, however, was not so fortunate!

And yes, those are CD's holding it up!
