    Ok It's here, The Official Show off your tank thread.

    What I'm Looking for:
    full tank shots
    individual coral shots (don't have to be perfect)
    individual fish shots (don't have to be perfect)
    plumbing and sump area shots if you can.
    Tells us your lighting schedule, your feeding schedule.
    do you have fish or corals that you spot feed?
    List tank size and equipment.
    Oh yeah, what part of town are you from.
    Thanks!
    I will have Pics up soon, working kitchen project, just stopped to start this and take up to date pics of my system.

    Please don't let this fall between the cracks folks.
    maybe we can do sub threads and place the links in here.
    for instance, NW houston thread, NE,South, SE,SW, Medical center etc.
    LMK if this is a good idea and i wil start the NW thread.

    Happy Posting friends!
    My name is Felix, Nice to meet you.
    Tank specs coming soon!

    NW HOUSTON:
    110 gal system, sump roughly 30 gals. skimmer tunze 9010
    return pump is a Coralife Turbo-Sea 1270, lighting is 4 x54 watt and 2x108 vho actinic. 11am vho's turn on, 12pm t-5's turn on. 9pm t-5's turn off and vho turn off at 10pm. One 25 watt uv filter and a two little fishies reactor. I feed the babies twice a day with mysis shrimp and with my new additions i add a small clip of nori.
    originally setup this tank 2 years ago, then in april after the nw houston tak tour, i decided to re-do my system, i changed the overflow box from from one huge center box, to two small boxes, redid the plumbing and aquascaping, went from a DSB to SSB. tank has being running for roughly 4 months. I'm bad with dates.

    Livestock:
    6 line wrasse
    2 false percs
    1 white cheek tang (Acanthurus nigricans)
    one yellow tang(Zebrasoma flavescens)
    one 2 spot bristle tooth tang(Ctenochaetus binotatus)
    one Scissortail Goby
    one Zebra Barred Dart Goby
    one pink spot goby.
    All of my corals come from our sponsors, fjw aquarium-first guy i bought corals from, way before he had the store, rock n reef, same thing. 3cc and citypets. livestock i currently have all come from rock n reef with the exception of my clowns.

    Nice lookin' tank flex. I'll try and get something together in the next couple of days.
    Your thread made me think about my lighting cycle and maybe delaying everything so they're on longer in the evening.
    One thing I think should be mentioned is how long the tank has been up and running.
