The tank was up and running from July 2007 to July 2009 when I had to empty it due to a change of apartements. Future projects will have their own blogs. This was my first saltwater aquarium, and it was a fantastic learning experience. I feel I now have a great base to build on for future projects. I am sure there will be more projects, but I can't promise when they will come.
The plan is to keep macro algae, filter feeders, live sand, fish, shrimps etc native to my region, the north east Atlantic.
I am located in Bergen on the west coast of Norway. The Gulf Stream, originating in the Gulf of Mexico, passes by the coast here after having crossed the North Atlantic. It brings warm water changing the climate of this region from subartic to temperate. It also causes an upwelling that makes the ocean nutrient rich. The result is a very fascinating underwater environment.
