I've had tanks most of my life. I used to breed cichlids for many years and was heavily involved in the marine hobby for a long time. Well, I haven't had a tank for a few years, but that is going to change soon. I had an aquarium design and maintenance company when I lived in Austin, and I guess I just got burned out for awhile. It gets old hauling R.O. water up and down stairs. I'm excited about getting a tank again. I urge any of you guys to post pics of your tanks. PLEASE!! Especially you, Tom!

Excellent idea about the rent-a-reef Tom...I have to give that to you, did you make that up?

Effectively photographing fish requires some fine-tuning that I obviously have yet to master (or maybe talent that I lack) , but you did ask for pictures of our tanks. These Red Hooks have a lot of personality, and they're hardly ever displayed in shoals although they are a schooling species. So I set up a Red Hook shoal a few months back. They're about half-grown now at 3-4".

No way, thats crazy! Actually, I meant the Red Hooks have the smaller teeth :lol: . They're really kind of vegan fish primarily, although I wouldn't trust 'em with anything small enough to swallow.
