I've recently once again set up an aquarium,
a salt water 'reef tank'.

In doing it again, I went fairly big, 125 gallon.

Thanks to craigslist, I've started with a lot of good things, at a very discounted price. I also patronize my lfs (local fish store), when I need things also.

So far I have a:
Blue Tang
Yellow Tang
Clown Fish
Toad, or file Fish
Cardinal Fish
Goby
Cleaner shrimp
4 large snails
6 hermit crabs
a small starfish-apparently a castaway on a piece of live rock I bought.
LIve rock,
Soft corals:
mushroom, polyp, and kenya tree

With this group, I'm sure there are many others,

I'd like to see and hear about yours

I have had a 75 gallon FW set up for several years now, it's gone through it's share of changes along the way. I currently have a 6in highfin spotted pleaco, three large balas, some tetras, cory cats, rainbow shark, etc. It used to have live plants, too many snails and the artifical plants now look really good! I'm running a marineland Emperor 400 for filtration. The only downside is moving it, which I'm going to have to do about a month from now.

...from the Keys of course. Although I do have some goldfish in a lily pond.

I used to have a reef tank - but it was like throwing money (lots of money) down the drain. Even worse than a boat.

Wrong. It is undoubtedly the Nigerian spotted cross-eyed snaggled tooth mullet sucker.

That is one ugly bugger right there! Not something you want to see when diving.

Cleaning fish poo isn't glamorous, but it pays the bills!
