This makes my reef tank look like a goldfish bowl


Recommended Posts

After watching his goldflake angel rip up some of the softies' date=' I was waiting for the pretty little booger to go eat his coco worms. What the heck kinda tangs were the funky colored ones? Beautiful set-up.[/quote']


(laugh)(laugh) I noticed that as well. Guess there is so much for him to chose from in that tank he doesn't do in any one piece... just keeps things pruned (scary)

Can you imagine the maintenance schedule this tank must have had. Not to mention the moneys just to keep it happy let alone buy more tang mutations. They were pretty baddass though. I would not enjoy that much maintenance. I get lazy with my tank sometimes and its a mere 120.
