We installed this 220 gallon saltwater fish tank in Gloucester, MA over a year ago. It was actually an upgrade from a 100 gallon tank that was in the same space.

As the focus of this aquarium is primarily fish at this point, we don’t refer to it as a “reef tank”….yet. Although, it has all the elements in place to become a full-on reef in the very near future....
