Tahoe Quarterly : Summer 2007

The new issue of the Tahoe Quarterly hit the stores today and can be found in retail shops around the North Lake Tahoe, South Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Reno and Northern California area.

I ran into author Robert Frohlich at Spindleshanks restaurant, Tahoe Vista, last year, who I teamed up with years ago when I was the photographer at The Tahoe World newspaper in Tahoe City, and we caught with each others lives. When his editor at the Tahoe Quarterly suggested a piece about residential water features he recalled my unique business and wanted to interview me and learn more about saltwater aquariums.

Here is the portion of the article that pertains to me and Sierra Saltwater Systems.

This is a photo (by Vance Fox, courtesy of Genesis Systems) of Tim & Tracy's 650 gallon artificial/live reef tank in Arrowcreek, Reno, Nevada. The system was designed and installed by Genesis Systems. Currently the aquariun houses an Emperor Angel, Mimic Tang, Naso Tang, Powder Blue Tang, four Black & White Heniochus Butterfly fish, five tank raised Bangaii Cardinalfish, tank raised Fridmani Pseudochromis, White Stripe Maroon Clownfish, Sailfin Algae Blenny, Flame Angelfish, Orange Diamond Goby, twelve Green Chromis, Niger Triggerfish, a Solarensis Wrasse and that's just the fish!

I understand that these photos are much too small to read, but if you click on them, you can read the complete article in a full page.
