These two images give you a large desktop picture for your computer. Sally Jo and I are putting together a slide show that will show you how Lionel built this wonderful intricate reef using man-made rock and captive raised cuttings.
You can see the 30 gallon bulletproof reef that Leonel set up last year using two medium-size Aragocrete Sculpturestm. Lionel was able to start this entire reef using GARF Grungetm and small coral cuttings from our other reefs. The only equipment that he has used on this aquarium consists of:
3 -36 in. normal florescent lights- Lionel started this tank using two Actinic 03 bulbs and one white Actinic bulb, and he switched to two Actinic white Bulbs and One Actinic blue Bulbs when the tank was 3 months old. Lionel uses a polished aluminum reflector and a elegant plastic light rack that Norm made for him.
3 -maxi jet 1200 power heads -Lionel is now experimenting with several Mini-jet pumps because they are much smaller
You can see from the above list that there was no fancy equipment used to start or maintain this beautiful reef. Lionel surprised me, when he chose a beautiful Aragocrete arch with many holes and caves, because he turned it on its side. After the Reef had been running less than a week I could see how beautiful Eddie Postma's Aragocrete arch was when it was lying on its side in this small aquarium.
