      Hi, I�m a new member. My handle is Dr. Tare. I
      have been into salt-water tanks for about 7 years, in
      various stages through out that time. From very
      experimental (not having a clue what I was doing) to now with
      about 2 years of reef keeping. Over the last 5 years I
      have had a 90 gal. �show or tall� tank. They are
      beautiful (when clean) but I don�t recommend the �show or
      tall� for reef tanks because they are hard to keep
      clean and almost impossible to reach the bottom. I got
      a new tank about 6 months ago, thank God, and of
      course my wife for giving me the �OK�. It is a 180 gal
      with dual over flows, which eliminate the need for
      �backpack� type equipment.<br> I have a �box type� filter
      system in the stand underneath, it has a built-in
      protein skimmer, then filter media, and two return
      powerheads.<br>There are also two foam media filters that are in the
      overflows. This system seems quit adequate. <br> As for live
      stock, I�ll list what I can remember at the moment:<br>
      1: purple tang<br>2: yellow tang<br> 3. sail fin
      tang<br> 4. 3 ea. Clown fish, not sure of variety<br> 5.
      Coral beauty angle<br> 6. Fire angle<br> 7. Pigmy angle
      (has yellow head)<br> 8. 3 ea. Purple firefish<br> 9.
      2 ea. Damsels (blue with yellow tails)<br> 10.
      Domino damsel (large and aggressive, but I keep her
      because she lays eggs regularly, might try to get a male
      some day and breed her).<br> 11. Cardinal (silver and
      black strip)<br> 12. 2 ea. Blue mandarin gobies<br> 13.
      Green mandarin goby (green with round dot
      design)<br> 13a. Lawn mower bellney (sorry about spelling, very
      good on algae).<br> 14. 2 ea. Fire shrimp<br> 15.
      Banded reef shrimp (red and white strip)<br> 16. Unknown
      quantity of reef crabs (hermit type, black and white,
      blue, and red legged). I just keep adding these I find
      them very helpful with algae and other clean up and
      very entertaining.<br> 17. 4 ea. �Regular� crabs, (2
      ea. Orange, and 2 ea. Orange body with black
      legs).<br> 18. 5 ea. Anemones, 3 ea. Bubble, and two long
      tentacle. <br> 19. Corals: torch, anchor, hammer, flower
      pot, elegance, pagoda, leather, mushrooms, and various
      others.<br> I will post more details in future posts along with
      pictures soon. I have been looking for a message board for
      some time, I hope this one will be good with alot of
      support from it�s members. Quantity and quality of posts
      make a board worth while. I will try to post or review
      this board at least once a week. <br> Please responded
      to this post and let me know if I�m to windy or if I
      can be of any help.<br> Even after 7 years, I�m just
      getting started. Always something new to learn or
      discover, that�s what makes this such a wonderful and
      rewarding hobby.<br>Sincerely,<br>Dr. Tare
