It's a Glass Odyssea B60. Came with tank, stand, compact florescent lights (blue and clear) and hood wet/dry filter. I liked it because the front has no green glass edges. They are round.

WOW that's looking really nice!
Mines still so bland comparitively. I'm SOO jealous!
Are those real plants in the background? And is that a xenia you've got there?

Thanks for all the complements !

Some of the plants are plastic ... The tank was so bare, so I thought I would use two plastic seaweed plants until it gets more established. The green one is real soft and the fish like. The brown one is very hard and the fish for the most part stay away.

And is that a xenia you've got there?
I'm not sure ... I will ask the next time I'm in the fish store. It's real. As are the mushrooms.

I add a little live rock and coral every week or two. Trying to go slowly ....! It's so hard ! LOL

New pictures of the soft coral under blue lights.

Pretty pretty pretty!
I've finally got a bit more colour to mine - I got some red caulerpa and some green cualerpa just to make it a little more lively. I've got a shaving brush plant coming soon too

Just wanna get some more fish in to look at ;D

Thanks Joe,
It's still a very young tank (2 months). I keep making changes all the time. My recent changes are to the filtration system.
I have removed the hood filter and air-skimmer, and replaced them with ....

Whisper-60 power filter - Mechanical
EheI'm 2227 Wet/Dry filter - Biological
Coralife Super Skimmer 65 - Chemical

Water is crystal clear now !

Yes they are power compact (PC) fluorescent lights. One set of white, one set of actinic blue. The soft corals like them, though not enough
wattage for stony corals or an anemone.

And yes they came with the tank, but you can buy a retrofit kit that will fit you standard light hood.

New picture ... more this weekend of my new soft corals.

Thanks Miss Mouse !
Not sure what wall you mean ?
Light wattage is around 150 watts total. I need more !
Plants are all soft corals except that green plastic seaweed by the heater. I will post close-ups tonight.

Wow that tank is so beautiful, and so are your fish. If you haven't named them, you should name them off the nemo movie clownfish-nemo bluefish-dory and yellowtang- bubbles...lol I'm sure you arlrady named them though. taking care of a saltwater tank is like a daily ritual though, right, it takes a lot of time to take care of the water...I always wanted one but that's what people said

Thanks lolagurl,
Yes it's a lot of work ... But I really enjoy it.
I use to have Oscars and breed Cichlids ... They were easy compared to a saltwater tank.

Now for the close-up I promised ! ;D

OK ... One more picture !
My red star-fish, he always hidding in the rocks.

Ahhhh that is just fabulous!
I meant the wall of live rock - is it just one big piece or lots of smaller ones? I wish I could pay you to come round and aquascape mine! Not my strong point sadly :-\

The wall is just a bunch of small rocks. The purple is starting to come out more now. Plus I bought a turbo snail last week ... he's great at cleaning
all the green algae off of everything !

I am a little worried about the live rocks falling over and cracking the glass ... I live in So. Calif. (earthquakes ).
Any suggestions ?

The LFS owner wants me to buy another 60 lbs. of live rock. I told him "where will the fish swim" LOL .
