    You guys seriously suck.

    I can't EVER get a tank to look like that, cause the electricity alone would cost as much as rent.

    I gotta be happy with my fricking 100watts in a 90 gallon tank.
    4 26 watt t5's.

    I had to keep feeding my damn anemone or he will die, cause not enough light.

    Where is the justice. And the next person that says "but you just gotta go in your back yard and you can see this stuff" NU UH. you can't. Period. I have lived on this rock a long time, and every weekend I go snorkeling. And this island has world famous diving and snorkeling. And not once have I ever seen a spot like this guys tank...NOT ONCE. and I dive and snorkel.

    cause the real thing is never this nice or colorful. Because it's in nature. And nature is dirty and natural. No way you would find rock with coraline on it like this guys, in the real world. Cuase you can concentrate TONS of calcium on those rocks, In your own tanks. But in nature it's a constant calcium level.

    200 gal power fussion skimmer

    while you wont see anything like msobon's incredible tank, i just have one word for you "stingrays". and there has got be some great diving spots with indigenous corals and fishies.


    and while maybe you wont see as much coralline where you dive, you should have no problems getting it going in your tank. it actually prefers lower light conditions and the Ca in NSW is 420, same as we ( or at least me ) keep it in our tanks.


    i just can't feel sorry for you when i think back to the 4' of snow that was on my roof 5 months ago :b7:
