50 gal tank circa 2008. Wish I still had some of that Frogspawn. It grew like crazy in a tank I barely did anything to (I sold it on Craig's List for $25 for ~3 heads and thought I was making "Reef Gangster" money).
Water change...nah! 2 part...what's that? Just throw some Kent Turbo Calcium in when you think about it. Testing... OK, but that was an every 2-3 month thing, and I didn't know/care what to do about it. Nitrates hung around 20 ppm, I think. Sump was an unmodified 20 gal Long. 6 x VHOs that cooked the tank all summer.

My 60g cube back in 2007. Live rock from Marshall Islands!!! Good ol' days. 1st pic curing. 2nd pic Mari-cultured pest free huge frags that grew like weeds under cheap Chinese metal halide fixtures. 3rd pic of my Latzonatus clown after I traded my wild-caught true Percula pair ;Facepalm What was I thinking?! Still have that Latz though so not all is lost. Wishing we still had these wonderful options from back when.:(

This was in 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon and aquariums looked a little bit different than todays tanks. This was my first aquarium after graduating from goldfish bowls. Still not saltwater but the next step forward.
