Robbie's 30 Gallon Reef Tank

This tank consists of a variety of saltwater fish including Foxface, Spotted Grouper, Sand Shifter, True Percula Clown, Snowflake Eel, Green Mandarin, Angler, Long Nose Hawkfish, Six Line Wrasse, Lawnmower Blenny, assorted cleaners, and last--but not least--my pride and joy, a Thornback Camel Cowfish. Too many corals to list... Equipment used: 30 gallon tank with a 20 gallon sump that holds the UV Sterilizer, bio backpack, protein skimmer, Coralife lights and an Aquaclear 300 Mini refugium.

Simply brutal dude. You can't have that size of fish in a 30 gallon tank. And as for HighVoltageScience, what kind of comments are those? 2 tangs and an angelfish in a 32 gallon? Shame on you. Looks like a couple of novice fish keepers that didn't do their homework or some LFS workers that really wanted to make a sale.

maybe you should upgrade to a I'd say a 250 maybe 300 gallon tank.

Im trying to add some coral but im having some trouble getting them to grow on my live rock cause i cant really get a rubber band around the whole live rock to attach it. how did you do it when you couldnt just set it on a flat rock?

Too many fish. I dont think a spotted puffer or foxface should be kept in a 30 gallon. Other than that nice tank.

other than that youve won my vote bro! Your longnose hawkfish is beautiful man, they are one of my all time favourite fish. and most of your corals are looking healthy and growing! Nice work with the tank :)

man im not gonna go on and be a dick like a lot of these guys seem to have been, but you have stocked your tank with a lot of livestock that are going to quickly outgrow the tank. Your gonna need to upgrade them to much larger tanks in a while man - mainly the cowfish, grouper and angler. possibly the snowflake mooray as well but they can do pretty good in smallish tanks like this.
Mike Nienow
Mike Nienow - 11 years ago
Enjoy it while it lasts. This tank has no chance of lasting the test of time. Your list of livestock is straight out of the book of "What not to stock", "Fish to avoid", or "How to nuke your aquarium in no time". Thanks for setting yet another bad example for this hobby.

Dude you should do some research before you put certain species together your just going to be throwing your money away , bad lighting for a video and badly put together tank good luck though hope you realize the problem

until the cowfish and grouper grow .. it looks amazing but an almost 2 foot long fish in a 30 gallon is over kill

It's not about how much space a fish has its how much habitat there is for it to encorporate into its territory and if they are with fish they can coexist with. Put two clowns in an empty 50 gal tank and see what happens. To be fair, most of those fish seem quite small, for now, and don't seem to be running into each other. And at least its a long tank. The narrow tall ones seem to cramp the fish more,. Looks great to me

Can I put your ass in a coat closet with 4 other people and let you live there for the rest of your life? You gave advice about research, but what kind of research have you done, when you have a tank full of fish like this at that size, you obviously didn't learn shit.

puffers bend their tails when they don't have a large enough aquarium. I bet he goes up and down the glass too. You must have a lot of money too feed all those picky eaters.

I believe this tank to be 30 gallons. Simply look at the video it is obvious that its 30 gallons. Those fish will get to big for the aquarium. I hope you plan to upgrade soon. I also have a 30 gallon but I'm upgrading to 100 next month.
