    I'd add pics, but I'm too lazy to upload to the internets.
    I have a 220gal and a 55gal refugium.
    Sps, lps, softies, polyps, anemones and tons of fish. 2x 300w led, carbon and gfo reactors.
    Mother fucker gets me hard just talking about her!

    I had two custom made 340 gallons starphire SPS reef tanks for years... I spent 10's of thousands on them... then I got hit with AEFW and destroyed my corals. :(

    I enjoy the upkeep. I just quit a part time job working of marine tanks. That could be a chore sometimes, but it was still fun maintaining 4 other systems, plus the owners 2500gal holding systems. Smoke a little reefer, put on the headsets and play with the fishies and corals. Too bad the stern show sucks. Pre2010 stern shows were awesome to work to.

    AEFW?
    That's horrible! I've gone through a couple of die offs where I lost about 1/2 my tank, but my corals always survived. I got a call from an old customer yesterday and she told me the new guy somehow nuked most of her fish yesterday. I have to admit it bummed me out.

    Acropora Eating Flat Worms. They were awful 10 years ago. I swore I'd never get another tank until they found a cure.

    Ah. I actually don't have any acropora, but that's going to change soon. I was over run by red flat worms (not bristle) a while back. They were on everything and it lasted a year or so. My sixline wrasse or flame angel wiped them out. I haven't seen any in months.

    I ordered a bunch of corals and fish over the weekend. It's gonna be pretty chilly around here once Mrs Paddy finds out. I'll probably be spending a lot of time in the dawg house later this week. Fuck it, it's worth it! I can't wait to smoke some reefer and watch the pretty colors in my tank!
    I bought a bunch of zoanthid frags, mushrooms, a couple of specialty acros, an acan, chaeto, turban snails, an orange shoulder tang, red mandarin, and a couple of gobys.
    Yee-fucking-haw!!!!
