Hi Bobby,

Those a fantastic fish. I guess it must take up a lot of your time maintaining a saltwater aquarium.

Not really, once the tank is setup and properly cycled, it basically looks after it's self, you just have to change the lights regularly to mantain the correct spectrum of light, 20% - 25% water change weekly, and put the necessary additives.

The only thing that is time consuming is the watertests, calcium - Nitrate - Nitrite - Ph - silicates/ammonia (occasionally).

You never wash the tank or you kill the cycle (same thing for freshwater).

I have had several invertibrate spawnning in my tank, micro stars, ablone, snails....even asexual reproduction in soft corals, it is a very interesting hobby...also help's you understand how fish feed and how temperature effects thir feeding making you a better fisherman :D

I even kept Barramundi Cod, a kind of Grouper once but he grew too fast so I returned him back or he would eat all the other fish

Dear Bobby,
great pictures and fine to know that you're involved into that great pasttime activity as well.

I've added a few photos for you (as well as for the other members) from FEHMARN Island Aquarium/Germany. They're famous for being the biggest aquarium worldwide in keeping sharks. My shark pictures -made during the visit- are not really good, but I added a few of the other tanks.

Cleaning the tank: You never change water in your saltwater tanks? For my freshwater tanks I do it on regular base, every two weeks I replace 1/3 of old water. I thought saltwater to be more complicated and never touched it seriously as it is really expensive over here, even simple fish and invertebrate never get offered at prices below 50.00 Euro.

Dirk

Hi Dirk,

My pictures are not very good (all from my fishtank), especially that of my Angelfish as she is very shy even though she has been with me for almost 4 years now.

Balancing a reef tank is very critical and you need to know and understand what creatures you wish to put in your tank, sea creatures are very aggressive, they feed on each other and produce toxins especially invertebrates that can kill or damage others, some are even toxic even fatal to humans.

If you dont understand them your hobby will be very expensive, as they will kill each other or feed upon one another. So you need to start slow and be cool...

Some examples just from your pictures:

The Tube anemone in your first picture, I had bought one and placed in my tank, I was aware that they feed on small fish but I risked it, however the next day it was destroyed, turns out that the Mantis Shrimp in my tank ate it. I have had this Mantis Shrimp in my tank for a few years now but have never seen it, I can hear the clicks it makes though. I built a trap to catch it but all I caught were the crabs in my tank, anyway some of the crabs are also destructive to corals so I got rid of those crabs.

The blue tang, I have never kept one as they are pure herbivores and suffer with “hole in the head disease” very easy if they are not given a good diet.

I have kept Bangi Cardinals (last pic), you can breed these fish, they carry the eggs in their mouth like cichlids…

The Elephant Ear mushroom corral that the Bangi is in front is a carnivore, like an anemone, at night they can feed on small fish while they are sleeping, if a fish ventures near them the basically close up and engulf the fish.

I weekly change about 25% of my water. Only clean the class with a algae scraper, the biggest problem with a reef tank is controlling phosphates. With a “fish only” tank you can use chemicals to get the phosphates out but not with corrals. A protein skimmer is a MUST. Give it a go…try “fish only” first, go with Damsels to start with. Do not buy any angelfish till you have at least 2 years experience, they are very challenging and expensive.

The secret to keeping a saltwater tank is patience, you are a fisherman, you will succeed. If you need any advice I can help, besides there are some very good forums on the net to guide you.
