example profile:

Hero's November 2009 TOTM

Aquarium Size: 7 U.S. Gallons

Aquarium Stocking List: Fish - Catalina Goby Pair
Corals - Orange Cup Coral
Anemones - Dahlia Anemones
Other Inverts - Common Shore Crab, Hermit Crabs, Whelk Snail

Aquarium Specs:
The tank has been set up for about one year. I feed twice a day with mysis in the morning and bits of brine and flake in the afternoon. For the inverts I feed a plankton mix as well as pieces of silverside. I am running a canister filter designed for a 100 gallon aquarium to deal with the high waste output from feeding.

Other:
I plan on upgrading the tank and currently am preparing for the algae bloom in the spring.
