There is quite a bit of saltwater, not so much reef cause most corals are illegal to possess in Hawaii.

But FW and planted are very popular, prolly cause you can grab a mask and snorkel and go look at reefs and SW fish whenever you want, why keep them in a tank...hehe

That's very true! I love aquariums but I've never seen any aquarium that matches the majesty of Shark's Cove or any of the reefs near the sand bar in K-bay. It's one thing to watch corals and anemones and even the shrimp and fish, but to watch live as a grouper and tuna dart in and eat 'em right in front of your face, or watch an 8' hammerhead brush past you- now that's something no glass box can contain!

Have you ever seen the Tennessee Aquarium? For a fish hobbyist, that is the best public aquarium on the planet that I know of. They have massive FW displays of every biotype on earth, including a small school of Congo Tetras that I donated to them back in the day (I'm proud of that!), and from the SW side of the house, they were the first to breed Seadragons in captivity. The GA Aquarium and several other leading national Aquariums carry the offspring. It's in Chattanooga and totally worth the trip if you are ever close by. The Jack Daniel's distillery isn't too far away, either!

A big howzit to BlackLabelFish and dr0ck! Sorry I haven't been on to check the boards in a long time. Since last on, I sold my whole 55g setup, got a 40b and am now breaking that down to sell.

Yeah I'm with you- I think I'll wait to build a 125g before going crazy in the hobby again. I'm thinking of breaking down my 5 and 10's.

HECO is killing us too- these rates for electricity are 3x crazy!!!
