Took some pics tonight of my soon-to-be 13 year old reef. Hope you like them.

Very very nice. What are the 4 red things along the bottom towards the front in the last pic?

Thank you. That is a branching lobophyllia that I inherited a few years ago. It was in bad shape -- barely enough tissue to cover the skeleton. It "almost" looks normal now after a long recovery.

Very impressive.  Your tank has lasted longer than most marriages.

A great many threats face reef environments.  An informed marine aquarist can be part of the solution, not a contributor to the problem.

Took some pics of the cabinet/canopy system I had built last year. It houses my RO water and saltwater for changes, topoff reservoir, and electrical equipment. It was a long time coming but worth the wait. It has made tank maintenance easier by a huge measure. I can change about 18 gallons of water in about 10-20 minutes with minimal effort. Plus I like the way it looks.

Thanks Arthur. I sleep a lot better at night knowing that the rat's nest of cords and power strips are out of the stand and up off the floor.

That tank is amazing. Fascinating how over a decade of growth makes a huge difference. If more of our tanks lasted that long... wow.
