Tank Pictures of Sacramento

Curious to see other member's tanks look like on here. I didn't see a picture thread anywhere in the the MARS sub-forum so I decided to start one. I know there are some amazing tanks out there. Don't be shy!

I'll start...

Here was my first tank back in 2002. Ran for 3 years before I turned it into a FOWLR tank for easier maintenance for my parents. Unfortunately, it's the only picture I have of the tank. This picture was when the tank was about a year old. I wish I took more pictures because all of the brown sps colored up quite nicely.



I've also had a 40gal LPS Bowfront and a Nano cube in between but unfortunately, I never took any pics.

My last one was a small nano tank as well. Only had it up and running for about a year before I had to tear it down and move.

Nice tank Tfp! Man that's a huge tank. I've always wanted a peninsula tank... just never had the room or layout for one.

Keep the pics/video coming people!

Neat! I like that corner overflow box. Is that huge rock in the back one whole solid piece?

Glad to see a local thread. I'm looking to break the ice and jump into marine tanks (actually since my wife is in medical school, I currently have a budget just big enough for a stripped, used cube. So more like stick my toe in the water). Thanks for the pics, anyone do meet ups to bs about tanks?

New here

Nothing special yet, my old 120g long ... just moved it my first house I own ... Now I can give it some more attention, most things made it ... getting some led lights to add to the two 250w halides next week ... went for a more natural look ... one halide is on in the pic waiting on a new bulb ... prolly will add a shallow sps tank in the near future beside my qt and frag tank ... Mostly kept it because I have had the fish for a two years now ... the fu man chu lion-fish I have is my fav.
