Yeah.. I ran a 75 gallon reef for about 5 years. That was a serious investment in time and $.... but I tell you - nothin quite like a really healthy wall of live rock - a live sandbed teeming with who knows what - wave makers, dimming moon cycle lights... its great.
Not for the feint of heart or timid.
