sadly, they only put in fish... but they said it was the only residential tank of that size. pretty wild and am wondering how long was the free maintenance on it coz i dont think that family could have sustained that tank. that would suck if you decide you didnt want it, it would be one empy space in your living room

lotsa yellow tangs -

made me cry (does every week) but the family was an Army family in Ohio whose father lost his leg from a roadside car bomb.

In 7 days he was walking (almost running) with a prosthesis.

Shows like that keep me grounded.

well with 50 yellow tangs they don't have to worry about algea.

I hope they get some clownfish for the kids, they go crazy for them

if they decide they don't want the tank in a few years I know where they can sell it
