Im in high school. My tank is in the very long process of being set up. Its like it will never end.
I just have lighting, RO unit, and testing equipment left though. Then Im ready for sand and live rock.

im a sophmore and 15

excuse the cyano a little outdated
oh yeah i get 30% off almost everything where i work

Do you like that shape tank?? I was thinking about getting it but i couldn't find anyone who had one.


what about middle school? im 13, last year in middle school.
right now, the lights are off, so here is a pic of about 2-3 months ago. it has changed a lot and i get amazing coraline, but i scrape it off when ever i can. i guess im a little OCD, i like it to look neat and clean

Thats a very good response ...

My tank was a birthday present and live rock and sand is going to be a christmas present from my parents. Iv gotten all the equipment myself and will be getting all the livestock too.

This pic is one of my most recent (February) FTS. Softies are gone, and have been replaced by SPS. A few LPS have been traded, and I cut away all the xenia. Rockwork has been redone three times since this, but looks pretty close to this again (three seperate formations).
