January '04 - Jeff Haynes's 380 Liter Fish-Only Marine Tank. (USA)

Up until about 1980 when pioneer marine aquarists began learning how to make corals survive and propagate in a home aquarium, setups like this one owned by American hobbyist Jeff Haynes were the most popular way to keep marine fish. A big tank, lots of filtration, a very sparse fish population, crushed coral substrate, bleached coral ornaments, and a lot of experience is the formula of success for what is now known as a fish-only (FO) marine tank.
