the Dream Tank for me would be an "inverted" 90 gallon saltwater MACRO ALGAE tank with a wave-maker, and current movers, but timed to be quiet at night. Night lighting is timed with moon cycles.
A couple of giant clams and whatever turns up in the live rock.

very zen, a friend said.........zoning out............

My dream tank was to have a discus tank. I got the opportunity to set one up and lost interest in them after about 6 months. Strange/crazy maybe but true!

i guess the slower movnig "peacefull" fish just dont do it for everyone...if i were to ever have the money for a discus tank it would have to be the snakeskins, the solid colored discus dont do it for me.

I think I'll have to agree with you. Mine were cobalt blue, and another variety that was blue. I would have much prefered snakeskins but I bought what was available at the time. To me they just were not worth the price.

thats how i feel about the solids, they are beautiful, but compared to the snakeskins the solids are just not worth those prices.
but that ebing said, i dont think i could ever spend that much on a single fish no matter how beautiful it is lol...thats probably why ill never have a discus tank...between the snakeskins and a big school od neons or cardinals (and trying to get healthy ones lol) id probably spend a fortune on it lol.

My dream tank is a 200 gallon filled with tiger barbs, various rainbow fish, clown loaches, silver dollars, ram cichlids (dwarfs), and pictus cats.

Discus are amazing fish but I am too cheap to spend the money on them. I love angels but they kept on dying on me so those are out now. I've really become hooked on tiger barbs now.

what's keeping y'all from getting your dream tank??
I see mine on craigslist all the time for dirt cheap but I don't have the space right now.
maybe I should get rid of the bed and get the tank. I can sleep on the floor next to the tank and dream about my dream tank

for me its a combination of space and money, i know i can pick up the tank relitivly cheap if i keep my eyes peeled, but equiptment, running and stocking it are different matters completly lol.

a small scale jelly tank definatly has potential to come to life eventually but anything bigger than a 55 would just be too big for my new house.
