    This 120gal tank has been in my house for years not doing anything but sitting there. So i decided to turn it into a reef tank. I don't know much about coral except for some of their simple names such as carpet anomie's, tree sponges etc. Here are a few pics tell me what u think.:)

    What They Are and How They Live

    by J. Charles Delbeek
    "They are mysterious guests from an exotic world. Unlike anything else we keep in an aquarium, they represent the essence of the coral reefs that we try to duplicate in our living rooms. Our success at this effort depends greatly on how well we understand these unusual life forms.
    Unfortunately, for the average hobbyist, the increased availability of these animals is not matched by the information available concerning their biology and care. Too often, hobbyists know more about who manufactures their aquarium equipment than basic biological information, or proper identification of the animals they are striving to keep. And yet, without this information it is difficult to provide the optimum conditions that will allow them to grow and reproduce."

    Very nice tank! You've got some pretty hard to keep critters in there (sponges, gorgonians and anemones). I'm guessing that you're providing the anemones with sufficient lighting and the gorgonians and sponges with alot of phytoplankton?
