125 Reef Aquarium

I started taking care of this aquarium in October of 2005 after taking the contract away from Bob at Aquatic Imports. When I started all the rock was covered in thick red slime and all of the fish had illness. I took the fish and donated them to a coral holding tank. I then let the aquarium run empty of livestock for 4 months while I tried to get the water quality up to acceptable levels. I then slowly started adding fish a couple at a time.
