So wha ha happened wuz...I had once again to many tanks running at the same time and well...life sux and there isn't enough time for all of my hobbies :P

wait...you didn't think I was only reefing...nope...if things were only that simple.

I have:

started up on Poison dart frogs, so far I have 4 tanks up and running only 3 with frogs and I am raising a azureaus tadpole.

2x leopard geckos

125g reef

lots o' guns..that get pricey to shoot.

Mazda 3 hatchback...getting some shtuffs...I need speed :lol:

2007 Kawasaki Ninja 500r...I ssssaid I like speed

and of course a full time job

a husband

4 dogs

 

ok so I stuffed 3 nano's into this 40 long :o 28g, 20H and what was in the 40 macro got moved around.

wait! what happened to the macros...yeahhhh about that...I moved all I had left into the cleaned out sump on my 125g...so far they are doing great. I def do not have the assortment that I had prior, but most of my favorites are still kicking..I will be selling during spring time again.

 

Livestock:

2x grade B picasso clowns

2x S'more clowns

1x black clown

3x african firefish (they have bred in the tank)

1x yellow coris wrasse

1x red mandarin dragonet

2x blue eyed cardinals

1x barred goby

1x green clown goby

1x masked goby

1x tangaroan goby

1x yellow watchman goby

2x sexy shrimp

1x porcelain crab

1x strawberry crab

2x peppermint shrimp

1x skunk cleaner shrimp

and a CUC from hellz

 

yes 17 fish!!!!!!!!!!!!

please do not try this if you are a new reefer...most of these fish are small.

 

random pix of the tank as it is now...I really need to sell some shiz.

So far so good...my only real concern are the clowns, no aggression as of yet, but I will most likely need to separate them at some point.

 

Thanks for looking!

It looks awesome! I hear you on having too many tanks. I tried it and burned out. I was actually out of the hobby for a few months. Sold pretty much everything, tanks and all. Just bought a new NC12 and it's sitting here cycling. I'm going VERY simple this time around. Easy coral, easy routine. I want to actually have a fully grown in reef to enjoy.

 

I'm really liking the looks of your 40. If anyone can do it (that many fish), you can :)

Looks great Maria. I hear ya on the burnout.

 

If you really want to have some fun in that Mazda3 you need to find the closest SCCA Chapter and hit up an autocross. ;)

You sound alot like me and my hobbies. I started off keeping rare insects, at one time I had 5 tanks of varying sizes full of critters, a snake and was nearly about to get into dart frogs but ended up moving, and gave away/sold everything I had.

 

Years later I got into reef keeping, just started a 57g upgrade yesterday from my 28g Nanocube.

It's alive!!!! Looking great as usual... I'm about to take down my 40 long, it had been quite stable and served me well over the past few years... and if you're looking for some cheap MH fixtures, I'll give you a great deal in a few weeks!

I love that Jungle Ruin paludarium very cool!

 

I'm going to get into frogs soon. I want to get some Fire-Bellied Toads with a few anoles. I also need the good equipment and live plants though so I need to read up on them.
