Wow! Nice aquarium. Then you'll love diving (in clear water on dynamic reefs). I'm glad you're into captive breeding.....too many fish populations, especially of unusual fish, are threatened and dwindling because of collectors and others who pay well. yada yada. I know, I'm preaching to the choir. :waving:

Welcome to the forum, John.

I used to have salt water tanks years ago but gave up when my $4.95 hermit crab ATE my $69.99 anemone. Keeping a salt water tank is a challenge.

Making a habitrail for your fish is even harder:

Where is that? It's pretty cool -- never even heard of anything like it. Do the fish really swim through it from tank to tank? Incredible! (Why does it remind me of Finding Nemo? :wink:)

Of course you can always go with this kind of tank:
