    Thanks everyone.
    I have been thinking to add 2 more T5s, so I can dabble in more beginner SPS. :D

    There is a certain wild density to this tank that is pleasing to the eye.

    Wow Joyce, I don't know if it's because the tank is full of corals, or the diminutive size of that yellow tang, but that tank looks way larger than 75 gallons in the picture.

    Good job there!

    Thanks Mike, To me it feels like a 50 or smaller. The tang is about a medium size (a large small if that makes sense).

    Wow, great tank, Joyce.
    Your tank looks fully stocked =D
    I like the pic where the mystery wrasse was resting.
    How many #s of live rock you have in your tank? Do you like the Glass tank better than acrylic? (I recall your old tank was the 400+ gallon acrylic)

    Thank you Rudy.
    I believe I have over 160+ lbs of live rock, which includes the sump area. The old tank is 225 acrylic that another BAR member has made awesome. Check out this thread http://www.bareefers.org/discussion/index.php?topic=3553.30 on page 3
