    Well, I decided that it was about time I post a thread for this tank. It was the first tank we got in CA for SW. Initially it had a few fish and softies, but the softies quickly outgrew it. I was going to break this tank down, but the generous people in BAR have made it impossible to do so. :) It is not landscaped how I would like it, but I keep telling myself, why bother since I will have to move everything when I set up my 75 gal. I've been saying this for months now. I'm good at deluding myself. :D

    This tank has been running for almost 2 years. I do 10% water change every week and add calcium, iodine, baking soda, amino acids as needed.

    Equipment:

    28 gal bowfront
    Aqua C Remora skimmer
    128 watts PCs, 64 watts 10,000K and 64 watts actinic
    2 X Koralia nano
    1 FW filter box to run carbon, polypads, or whatever I want.

    Livestock:
    Banded coral shrimp
    3 peppermint shrimps
    3 hermits
    Assorted snails
    Assorted Zoas (too many to name)
    Assorted Candy Canes (Mint green, blue, flourescent yellow/green, red with green face, and lavender)
    Assorted Euphyllia (Frogspawn, Hammer, Bicolor Frog/torch)
    Blastomussa wellsi (red, orange/red with green centers, green and brown)
    Blastomussa merletti (pink with white centers)
    Micromussa X 2
    Pink Goniopora
    Indo Acans (orange crush, quad color)
    Favia (Christmas, Alien eye, reddish with light blue, green multicolor, green on green)
    Aussie Acan (green/purple)
    Pipe organ (green)
    Green plate
    Assorted mushroom and GSP (to be given away)
