SW FTS Thread
Welcome to our SW Full Tank Shot thread!
The purpose of this thread is to give our guests and members a place where they can browse through all of our SW tanks. To help keep the thread appealing and easy to browse through, everyone who is posting should try to follow the same format:
1. Start with a FTS.
2. Follow with a SHORT paragraph describing your setup.
3. Provide a link to your aquarium journal for people who would like a full rundown of your tank's equipment and inhabitants.
Feel free to link to a photograph that you can overwrite periodically when you make updates to your tank. That way, people will always see your most current FTS.
Please note that "permanent" comments on setups should be reserved for the aquarium journals. Comments posted on this thread will be periodically edited out in order to keep the thread fluid.
Thanks, and happy viewing!!!

31g acrylic all-in-one tank started in April of 2008. The display is about 22g and the fuge/sump is about 9. The clowns and some of the coral came from a 12g nano that had been running since June of 2007. The tank began as a home for zoas and mushrooms, but slowly turned into a mixed reef.

If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
