She's well over 230 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is 'America'... And I love her and I have always been proud of her.

Current Tank Info: 220 gal reef with 200+ gals of sump and refugium.

Beautiful tank! I like how you like to keep things simple.

I have to ask about what you feed your tank. Did I read that right where you feed banana???

Amazing tank. Do you actually feed your tank bananas? Or did something get lost in translation?
