Update (4/4/2004) Added complete listing with links to all my reef related publications.
Update (2/15/2003) Pictures of the tank added here
I tore down my tank in fall 2001 and have now redone it and started it up again. The tank had become too overgrown and showing signs of age and laziness related effects. The biggest change in my new set up is that I drilled the tank and added in 2 closed circulation loops, and have decieded to do this tank starting from tank raised coral and frags. The rock layout is a lot more open to allow for better water flow. Also, I switched to using 10000K Ushio lamps and eliminated the actincs. Also added in PFO reflectors. To see the pictures of the tank in Jan/Feb/March 2002 go here.

This tank was setup in April 1995 as a primarily SPS coral tank. I started keeping reef tanks since 1991 and after the usual progression of going from a 29G reef to a 55G reef, it seemed like I had acquired enough confidence to plunge into a large 180G reef. The 55G reef has now become a soft coral tank, and a coral orphanage and rescue aquarium.

full time passion, I do have a real job as a Professor of Industrial and Manufacturing
