Hi Brad

Your tank is still one of the best tanks out there.

Agreed.

Brad's set up is about as good as it gets.

His aquarium is also a bar!

Tom, yours is no slouch either.

both had some great planning and execution.

Unfortunately, my Female Naso tang has suddenly decided that she dislikes my male blonde Naso tang. What could make her decide this after 7 years of peaceful coexistance I will never know.

Anyway, she has been removed from the display and is living unhappily and lonely in my sump.

Anyone interested in purchasing her? $100. She is maybe 7" or 8". VERY healthy...about 7 years old. Eats pellets, frozen food and nori. Should b fine in a 200gal system, but probably nothing smaller.

Sorry to hear that! It would be tough to sell a fish after all that time together too!

Do you have any tank updates? How's it looking? (Photo bomb???)

Still one of the most memorable tanks I've seen in person.

How is it looking these days?

Really impressive when the shimmer is the size of a cruise missile. lol

Default Still there..

Well...the tank is still running. Most of the fish are approaching 15 years in there now. By most accounts, it still looks lovely....but I know it is not what it once was.

However, due to my planned retirement and interest in extended travel, I've decided to shut the tank down. That is not a simple thing to do. I'm trying to dismantle it in parts while it is still operating.

I have removed the ca reactor and no longer do any kind of Ca supplementation. I expected this to lead to coral death, but nothing has really changed. That was done about 3 months ago.

I have been removing rock and coral from the display for many months now. The idea behind this is to free up enough space in the tank to catch fish so they can find new homes. With all the rock and coral in the display originally, catching a healthy fish would be nearly impossible.

Many of the rocks in the display are now significantly larger than they were when they went in. Many hours have been spent with a hammer and chisel whacking off sections. These need to get small enough to lift out the top of the tank. More work needed in this regard.
