After months of research and saving the necessary funds, I've officially started my 75gal Reef Tank. I just added water over the weekend. The tank is still a little cloudy, but it's clearing up.

Here are some pics taken today.

Congrats on taking the plunge! I'm glad to hear a lot of research was involved beforehand; making the effort ahead of time is what saves many reefers from an overwhelming amount of frustration, worry, and a bruised wallet. Please keep us updated as to how it goes!

My tank has cycled. And after many trips to Cap Bay and Optimum Aquarium, I added 20 blue-legged hermit crabs and 3 emerald crabs last week. Today I added a mixture of Mexican Turbo and Black-foot snails and 2 Ocellaris Anemonefish (Nemo).

I'll let them get adjusted to their new home for a little while and look to start adding more. :thumbs:

I'll post more pics this weekend when my MH are on and I'm home. :roll:

Congrats on your new tank. Drop me a line when you are ready for corals. I have some beginner corals that I can frag for you

That's what I like to here. :D I had to give my ticket away back in Feb when they were handing out the free stuff, but now I wouldn't mind adding some corals. Shoot me a pm with what you have, any pics (if you have some), and how much.

Is there a chance you will be at the meeting next week?

The only thing that I can frag right now are leather corals. (colt, kenya and blue zoo(I think))

I think it was you that I talk too at that meeting.

It's quite possible we spoke at that meeting. Unfortunately, I don't remember who all I spoke too. It was my first meeting, and I spoke to a lot of folks.

I'll pm you about the corals. I'm very interested in adding some, just need to make sure everything is good to go on my end.

Today I added a mixture of Mexican Turbo and Black-foot snails and 2 Ocellaris Anemonefish (Nemo). Looking good, bug careful with those Medican Turbos. You have to feed them non-stop and they have a real nasty habit of falling and not getting up. They have to eat large volumes of algae to stay alive. I inherited five from a previous tank and keeping them alive is proving to be challenging. I lost two and gave away two. The last one was struggling until I put him in my overflow which has TONS of algae.

Thanks for the heads up about the snails. Currently I have a good bit of algae for them to graze on, but will keep an eye on them once I see the algae disappearing.

It's been about 4 months since I first uploaded some pics of my tank, so I thought while I wasn't playing "GOD" :shades: with my tank I'd take some more pics.

Enjoy

PM me and come by my house, i'll give you a big frag of my purple rim green monti for free. I always give people free stuff when they're new and join the ARC, just like most of the people here! :) GL. What kinda lights you have tho?

I have 400 or so baby snails if you want a couple.

Nice tank Doug! Is that the colt coral I gave you? If so, that thing has taken off!

Ran across this old thread and decided to read it. Wow how things have changed in the aquarium world.

Still have the same aquarium, just with a lot more growth. A lot more...
