Intro: Thanks for taking a look at my tank journal. I've been reefing since 2009; not a novice but far from knowing everything. I've always loved the simplicity of all in one tanks and my very first tank was a 29 gallon Biocube. I've had a few tanks between this Innovative Marine SR60 and my first Biocube but the contents of this tank came from my last 29 gallon Biocube I had set up for about 3 years. I added some cured liverock and moved the contents of that tank to this one in November of 2018. My goal is to incorporate all types of coral into a diverse, mixed reef and place a large emphasis on fish that are both beautiful but also serve a purpose in a peaceful community tank. My three daughters have some input as to what goes in the tank and while I don't always agree with their selections, I have been pleasantly surprised on more than one occasion (Valentini Puffer...Yasha Goby, just to name a couple). This is a family tank and something that we enjoy discussing, admiring and feeding every night before bed time. Update October 2021: In early 2020, I had a horrible Dinoflagellates outbreak. My pursuit of pristine water conditions created the perfect envornment for the Dinos to take over. A lot of my corals were suffocated and fish died during the ourbreak. After finally beating the Dinos back, I almost shut the tank down but ultimately just sort of walked away and let it recover. I did minimal maintenance and didn't add a thing for 20+ months. I had completely lost my passion for Reefkeeping. My youngest daughter who is 3 now loves fish and her interest in this tank brought me back.
