It took me 15 years to put together this Tank Thread. This tank has many hair raising stories over it's lifetime. Many lessons learned. I have had many of the Reef Classic: Accidents/Events/ and Setbacks: -> Had a Massive Macro Algae Spore Explosion ( Algae went "Go sexual" and -> Discovered my ( Dosing Pumps both turned till both Full Gallons of A/B Emptied) -> Had overnight TANK wipeouts (Copper Contamination) -> Learned to Love (Apatisia) -> Had every fish die pretty quickly (Velvet Disease). -> Struggled with (Cynao) -> Almost got killed by Electrocution (Urchin's Fault) -> Fought (Hair Algae) -> Couldn't get a single to Zoa to Survive ( Zoa Garden attempt Failures ) -> Discovered that (Colonia Hydroids) are my most hated pest ever. -> Got that Nasty (Ich) and lost the fight to save a special fish. -> Other things I overcame (Lighting , Circulation, Corals Getting too Large, etc) What I learned is "Mistakes, Accidents, and Setbacks" teach you to get better, if you don't give up. I haven't learned it all, and am no expert by any degree. About two years ago I stopped having big problems, from lessons learned past. And then one day.... I would say about 6+ months ago. THINGS CLICKED!!! The tank looked like BELOW This tank is in Our Kitchen (3 sided viewing). The tank continues to get better, and bit too soon to share a Current photo, since more Improvements are Work in Progress (Specifically some Pruning, Zoa and Richordia Gardens, Acan Growth, etc). Stay tuned as I share my Lessons learned from years Past.
