    Cool My 72 Gallon Bowfront Reef Tank

    Hey guys! I just started this tank about 3-4 weeks ago (meaning it has been running for 3-4 weeks).

    And having been 4-5 months since I put my first payment on the tank itself (which is paid off now) I am excited to have it running.

    Currently in the tank are 2 damsels, a snowflake eel, and 2 False Perucla Clowns.

    No reef lights yet so no corals. Getting reef lights tomorrow or the day after. Right now it is a FOWLR tank. Liverock is also curing at the moment.


    ALSO! quick thanks to everyone who helped out witht the tank by selling me stuff and giving me information. I have found RF to be a great place for all those things.

    and also a quick shout out to fattyboy for keeping me into fish and giving me a sh*t load of info. also for introducing me to this website. and you should click here

    Here are some pictures

    There is a good chance you SF Eel will catch and eat your clowns, personnel experiences. Also make sure you have a tight fitting cover, your eel will get out thru a opening the size of a pencil.

    Corals













    Feather Duster




    Brittle Star











    Alright thanks for looking! I actually just took a bunch of more recent pictures. Everything is open much more now But those can wait for later.

    Oh since the zoanthids came for free with the rock, I would like to ask anyone who recongizes anything to identify it for me

    Thanks again!

    when i first got him he got out the first night. my dad had to pick it up and expected it to be stiff as a board. it started flailing and bit him now this is after i got a tight fitting cover for the tank.

    the only way he could have gotten out was by going through the overflow box and out the top

    Are you sure that brittle star isn't actually a green serpent star? Looks a bit too big (and green?) to be a brittle, but then again I've never seen one that size in any of my tanks so I'm not too familiar with them... Serpent stars WILL eat your fish eventually, especially when they're that size...

    I was thinking the exact same thing.

    all the brittle stars in my tank have white and red stripe legs and the legs are rarely over 1"-2"
