I have skimmed over alot of what had happened, and details of what was done.
I'm just showing what has been done to date.
I still have to install the lighting on the 300DD, and transfer some of the coral I have been growing in my growout tank. I Hope to have that done before Thanksgiving


Remember - This has all happened since fall of 2009 - it has been a rather slow build for me, but I am just about there.

more to come .........

Jim,I remember I was over your house I think 3 years ago and pick up red cap and other coral. You told me about 300gal in making. I saw jim's caveman fish room in his basement. Really nice set up.He also grew some big pieces in that system. It may of took you a long time. But your work is perfect. .

Wow Jim, it looks like you're getting close. I'd love to see it when you're up and running. Let me know if you need help.

Jim-- it's going to be soon. I even was able to catch and transfer the four fish that were in my grow out tank. They are loving the extra space...

thirty6-- yes, my son is involved in the hobby. He is learning about husbandry, and from time to time helps me frag some coral.

here is a video of my grow out tank taken in Feb 2013 things have filled in a bunch since this was taken. Since this video I have bought 3 coral
I bought two nice colonies from DD Aussie blue tenuius, and spathulata.
and as a birthday treat I bought a purple digitata from coral theory in brooklyn
