Saltwater Fantasy Tanks!

Okay, so almost ALL hobbyists have a fantasy saltwater aquarium. It may be a little 15 gallon with one firefish goby, or you might dream of a 300 gallon reef tank with tons of fish. What's your perfect marine aquarium? Share it here! I'll start:

My reasonable dream is a 29 reef aquarium with three pajama cardinalfish, one firefish goby, two Clarkii clownfish, and one flame angel.

My perfect fantasy is a huge 200 gallon reef with small angelfish, cardinals, damsels, and all kinds of little fish to make it full of movement and energy. I may never get either, but it can't hurt to dream!


Edit: Forgot to add: if you have a perfect tank that you already own, share it here as well!

My dad had the perfect salt tank. It was a 75 gallon and contained living rock, a sea anemone, a clownfish, a coral strimp, a domino damsel, a hippo tang, a yellow tang, a feather duster worm, and picasso trigger (which later needed to be housed in it's own tank for being too aggresive).

It was gorgeous but then diaster struck and the tank got a disease and all of it died.:( Well all except the trigger which later died of natural causes.

Wow. That sounds amazing! I'm sorry to hear that it no longer is up.

Yeah it was a shame, the tank caught the disease from a sea urchin he had added. :(

Darn! In a tank that big, I would highly recommend a quarantine tank. One thing can send the entire tank south.

He had one and did quarentine it but sometimes there's just nothing you can do. That's the problem with saltwater is it's hard to recover from a loss like that as all the fish are expensive.
