After being a part of the club for awhile, I decided it was time to start my own tank thread, and getting something new is probably as good a time as any. :)

Just a little background. This tank is just over three years old, having been started in April of 2008. I was unconventional, and consolidated from a 75g after having it operational for a year. Now I'm wishing I had more room, but am tossing around a few ideas. I am the epitome of a snail's pace when it comes to doing stuff with my reef tank. So . . . don't stay tuned . . . or hold your breath. It'll be awhile before any upgrades are made! In the meantime, I love my little reef and the opportunities I have to watch these beautiful creatures in my own home.

This was my first time for two of the three reef stores we went to over in the Spokane area this weekend, and my hubby was such a trooper while I took my time looking everything over. Check out what I got from Barbie at Aquarium Solutions:



And the micromussa I got almost a year ago that was in such bad shape after shipping, is really starting to put on the growth. I love feeding this thing - it slurps down any mysis I give it.



Rob - I've also got a picture of the monti cap you gave me that has turned a really different color - you'll be surprised. I just can't seem to get it to post tonight.

Thanks Cynthia. Wow - that's sure an old shot! Amazing how stuff grows, isn't it? Yup, I'll get a new one posted here soon so you can see how everything has grown.

Ok, I finally had some time to do tank maintenance this afternoon. The only word I can use to describe this summer for me is "exhausting". I've had so many (not really fun) things going on, that there has been almost no time to do anything with my tank. Thankfully it seems to be rock solid. Everyone is still doing ok in there. Rob, check out your green plating coral! It's getting some size to it now, and the color it changed into is great! I'll try to do a tank shot too here soon.

And now that the rest of the coralline has been scraped off, and the skimmer cleaned out, here's a full tank shot. The clownfish is nesting in her hammer, as usual. Pink leather, anyone? Got lots of extras!

Thanks for the nice comments everyone! My little 36 can look pretty nice when it's all cleaned up.
