    Fred's 40Breeder SPS dominated mixed Reef

    Hi to all RF members!

    Finally managed to take time and upload some pics of my tank. Sorry for the poor quality, but I was rushing lol. Initially started in spring 2012 and currently planning my 125 or 180 gallon upgrade since this tank is close to overloaded. It's had its ups and downs in the beginning, but this year things are finally taking off and all parameters are steadily within normal parameters the last 13 months. Cheers to all Reefers and this incredible addiction!!!

    Beautiful tank. I am starting a 40B myself and I hope that one day it looks that good. What other fish do you have in there besides the 2 clowns?

    Thanks! It took a while and lots of $$$ of course to overfill this decent sized reef tank. I've also got 3 sapphire damsels, 1 neon dottyback, and 1 green mandarin. I'd be careful with adding a mandarin to a 40B since it can be difficult to keep without always adding pods, but my sump/fuge and HOB fuge resolves that issue and I haven't had to add pods since the beginning when I seeded the tank. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions, I'm happy to help.
