RUBY'S CUBE!!! (2007 till current)

Postby remiruby » Tue 24 Nov, 2009 2:55 pm

Introduction:
I’ve been running this tank for just over a year and its my pride and joy!!! I got the tank from a fellow reefer in 2008 and it’s been the best tank that I’ve ever had. I’ve decided to finally make a tank journal because shortly I will be pulling the tank down, as I’m moving house ☹
I’m hoping to start up a smaller tank and then keeping this tank and starting it up again in the future. I’ve had my clown fish since 2007 and they will be the only thing that I’m keeping for the new tank.
