    Last Day of the Glassbox on Film

    The glassbox, my personal aquarium prior to tear down. Just before tearing down my 90g rimless aquarium, or what I refer to as my glassbox, I sought the help of some friends to take make a brief video. A few corals and one piece of live rock were sold before filming, but overall this is […]

    Glassbox Throws A Changeup for 2011

I am a bit embarrassed to even share this…! ____________________________________________ After two weeks of cupramine treatment followed by formalin dips the Lyretail Anthias were ready to go into the glassbox.
