A few pics.....updated since I finally did a little collecting

Post by steveweast on September 30th 2010, 12:35 am

I finally managed to get some collecting accomplished last week before the weather turned nasty......plus, my Grunt sculpin decided to come out into the open. Here's some updated photos....

As stated, I'm in Oregon. I'm more into replicating the areas that I dive at in Puget Sound.....and once you get down past around 30 ft, the macros disappear except for the base of kelp plants.....besides, the macros need more light to grow, and that tends to lead down the path of the dark side filled with nussiance algae, frustration, and despair.

Here's a good video at what it looks like at depth. It's not my video...but a good representative of what it is like in the North sound around the San Juans.

Wow has this tank filled in quite a bit since these pics were taken! I had the pleasure of seeing Steve's tank today in person and man is it nice! I dont want to spoil it for the rest of you so I wont say much more and I'll wait until Steve decides to to a full unveiling.

Steve was nice enough to hook me up with a gorgeous Painted Anemone

Steve this tank is amazing!

I love those boxfish. Whenever I see pics of your tanks they always catch my eye. What do you feed them?
