I've been posting to this site for a couple of months. I figured I would post a bio...
My name is Miguel Sanchez
I'm 27 years old.
I've been keeping tanks of all shape and sizes for about 5 years now. I've moved around alot in the past couple of years so I haven't been able to keep the larger ones.

Right now I've got one reef tank. I've been into it for a few months now.
33 long (48"X12"X12")
Fluval 304 Canister
Emperor 280
Penguin 170
Prizm Skimmer
2 powerheads

It's partially stocked w/Live rock (Maybe 25lb). Here's some of the critters:
Sebea anemone
Stinging anemone
Zooanthids
Banded coral shrimp
Cleaner shrimp
Watchman Gobi
6 line wrasse

Hey Bert, my sister used to live on Bay Oaks Drive over there and my Grandmother lived two streets up from that I think it was Merlin Court.

Did you try again to break that piece of hammer or just leave it alone?

Bio
Jason Moore
19 years old
8 years keeping tanks
  • This tank is a 29g all-glass aquarium that use to be my beloved cichlid tank for many years (5 years) until I gave up and changed it to saltwater. I have always wanted to keep saltwater and I recently decided to give it a go. In the beginning, I did all the no no's and started too fast, everything died and I really got frustrated and was about to give up on the whole saltwater thing.


Equipment List
  • 1x Aqua C Urchin
    1x Mag-Drive 500GPH
    1x CPR overflow box
    1x 10g sump/refugium
    1x maxijet 1200 (for overflow)
    2x Maxi-Jet 400
    1x 150w Visi-Therm heater (unbreakable)
    1x 130w 50/50 Coralife PC + (build in Coralife Aqualight moonlight)
    45 lbs LR + 20 lbs LS

Livestock
  • 2x True Percula Clownfish
    1x Six Line Wrasse
    1x Orange Spotted Blenny (rare)
    1x Pygmy Angelfish
    15+ blue leg hermits
    1x Sand Sifting Starfish
    20+ various snails (astrea, margarita, cerith)
    various corals (mushrooms, zoos, LPS, and a sea fan)
I can't really get good full tank shots that show the true color because I haven't figured out my camera yet:
