Default Lemonpeel Angelfish

I was just checking my records and noticed my Lemonpeel angel is over
11 years old. Pretty good, I'd say. He's spent all his life in the
same 55 gallon tank with no skimmer or filtration. Took off the Bak-
Pak skimmer over 8 years ago and never looked back. Just live rock and
lots of powerheads. Normal output lighting only. Mushrooms and GSP's
taking over the tank. Tankmates include a blenny, coral bannded
shrimp, and a yellow tailed damsel, though they are all only 5 years
old. Can't get a more basic tank than that.

Just like the other post there is NO ONE here that gives a flying
**** about your freaking fish. Slap it between twl slices of toasted
bread and maybe then somone here may care for a fish sandwhich, but
your ****ing into thw wind posting in any of the aquaria groups. They
are extinct like your brain is dead.

Yeah, I've had to clean out buttons several times. Still like the BakPak
skimmer/refugium combo; it's kept my psychedelic alive for about
5 years.

I liked the Bak-Pak. It worked great. In fact, I have two of them
boxed up in the garage. I just got tired of the noise. But they sure
worked well. My GSP's are spreading all over the back glass. Tank has
been operating for almost 18 years. Psychedelic's are cool.

Would you care to share some pictures of the tank?
Thanks.

Sure. Here's a 20 gallon that's been set up for 11 years - until last
month. The anemone was in there for 10 years. Then all of a sudden it
started breaking down last month and was gone in a few days. 100 watts
of PC and a 2 gallon weekly water change kept it going for all those
years. As you can see, no coral algae ever formed. I just did water
changes and let it go. I called it my ugly tank. I never bothered with
checking water parameters except for salinity because it did so well
and quadrupled in size. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
Anyway, I put the clown in another tank and just did a major water
change on it and have left the lights off for a week. I'm not sure if
I'll get another anemone or something else entirely. Possibly
seahorses. Here's a pic of that tank - the first pic being when it
started. I'll post some of the 55 gal soon.

Here's a couple of early ones when I first set up the 55. I'll try to
find more recent ones.

I noticed a couple bubble algae in the background; how'd you keep them from
getting out of hand?

To tell you the truth, I never really did much. I picked a few off by
hand, but when some of them started to burst, I quit trying and let
nature take it's course. The only shrimp I had in there was a coral
banded, and they supposedly don't touch it. The pincusion urchin use
to mow over anything - maybe that helped. I haven't seen any bubble
algae in there for years.

had the tank/clown for 7 years before i got it, and i still have both.
