VERY FIRST TANK 30 BREEDER. I still have it in my storage. I have been trying to find them but I think the 30 breeder has been discontinued. I love the size of it though will never get rid of it. I have 2 my first tank was one as a display and the other was under it with a couple peices of plastic sheet siliconed in place worked out ok for a really cheap start, basically free...

Approx 1986… all Florida live rock, covered in macro algae and ricordeas in 75g reef tank with wet/dry filter, at 1 of my new car dealerships.

I met a local reefer about 10 years ago, and happened to ask him how he got into the hobby. He told me that in the late 80s when he graduated from college, he went to buy a new car and saw a reef tank! He was shocked when I told him that it was at my dealership!
