Not sure if anyone else on this forum likes Fish Tanks but figured id post up mine and see if there's anyone that shares another of my hobby besides cars...
so a little info about it, its a 75Gal tank with a 25 Gallon sump everything you see in this tank is real and very much ALIVE!!! its been up and running for almost 3 years, and i have more invested into this aquarium than i do my car...hope you enjoy!

My only goldfish died yesterday from stress from being removed and transported and re-acclimated to his "new", clean tank. RIP Zonkers.

hell yea its marlin nemo and dori hahaha

but for real saltwater tanks are dope as fuck but expensive as fuck

i used to have a 25 gallon salt tank just a simple setup but i loved it and it was expensive, the water filter was like 180 bucks for a salt one haha... i bet your 25 gallon sump cost alot :)

looks nice my friend used to have an 80 gallon tank with a sump setup it was friggin sick :)

No saltwater here, but I have a 36 gallon corner tank and a 55 gallon. My 36 gallon is down and for sale actually but my 55 is full of cichlids and loaches.

saltwater tanks have alot of maintenance.....

you have to keep an eye on the salt level my friend did 1/3 tank flush every 2 weeks where he drained 1/3 of his tank and re fill it with new special water and salt mixture.. its not no crazy kind of water, he just bought it all from the tropical fish store..

depending on the fish is depending on the price, i got all 3 of my clownfish for 20 bucks but they were babies i got my blue regal for 16 bucks and i had some other fish in there but mine was only a 20gal and when i moved out of my apartment i had to sell it nobody wanted it it sucked

i do weekly 10% water changes on mine using RO/DI Water and Tropic Marin Pro Reef Salt thats really the only maintanance that i have on mine beside daily water top off. once an aquarium has been setup for a while and is established its really maintanance free just like a car...if you do it right the first time you should only have to deal with regular maintanance.

it may suprise u but that is only a 15 gal. this was my first ever reef attempt and i did it with a mini reef. it was much more difficult but a good learning experience. i plan to upgrade at some point just not ready yet.

Looks super cool man, I always wanted to cut open a wall and put a really big one in there but was always afraid of the maintance involve. It looks so peacefull kind like going scuba diving.
