The Viewing Room

My viewing room is a 12'x16' sanctuary that, in addition to the tank, contains a couch , a Daybed and my "reefkeepers library" which includes every issue of FAMA back to 1978 with the exception of Feb., March, July, and Nov. I am actively looking for these issues by the way so if you know where I can find any of them (in good condition), please please please get in touch with me. But getting back to the room, it also houses a small collection of African/Pacific art; the highlight of which is a display of antique New Guinean fighting knives which were made from the bones of cassowary birds. One however is reputed to be a human femur.

I almost never get to relax in this room. First of all, it's one of the first places my daughter (and my wife) will look for me. Second, if I'm home alone and try to settle in, I'll inevitably find something in the tank that needs my immediate attention (read: tinkering). I'm trying to get better at this. So sometimes I'll bring in a radio and WILL myself to relax only to immediately fall asleep before I've had a chance to enjoy anything.

Stay tuned for updates as one of these days, I'm actually going to 'view' the tank.

The Workroom:

Depending on where you stand, this room measures (Images , either 8',4', or 0' x 16', 10', or 8'. In any event, it's way too small. This is a testament to very poor planning and in many respects it could use a complete overhaul, as there are so many things I would like to put back there, such as a quarantine tank, a frag grow out tank, a sensible sump/refugium set up, and a ‘fridge. But at least the floor drain works so in spite of it all, life is still good. Unless it gets hot. And with that, dear reader, you now know EVERYTHING there is to know about my reeftank and the system around it. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or you'd actually like even more detail on any of the subjects covered here, e-mail me and I'll do my best to respond as quickly as possible.

Time to check out the inhabitants now.

Thanks for coming by.
