Greetings, my name is Dan and I am a reefer up in Fort Collins. Currently I have a 210 g mixed reef tank and also a 29 g freshwater planted tank. In three years I have gone from a 25g salt to 55 and now the 210. I don't think I will be going any bigger until my house grows. Here are some pics of my tanks.
First the salt

Heres the fresh, it is under some tough times as of late. My HOB filter stopped running, as of now the only thing that keeps it going is a water change once a week.

Thanks guys, I feel like I neglect the fw fish at times but I still love them. The aquascaping was a pain in the you know what to build, it took me about 3 months to get the right side of my tank how I wanted it. It seemed like everytime Id drill a rock that I liked it would break in half. Next objective is the left side of the tank.
Does anyone know why when I try and reply with quote it asks to resign in
over and over again? Also, what steps do I need to take to post my skimmer in the drygood selling forum?

Ive got one blue, one gold, and one red commet. After a google search of bolivian rams they kind of look like a mix between the blue and the red commet. Are they different?

I will have to keep my eye out for them, I could always use more fish.

Ive had the potters wrasse for about 3 months or so, he is definately one of my favorites. The leopards are really tricky, this is my 3rd go at it. He has lasted the longest so far, my fingers are crossed with him.
