minhvu thanks!

Leonardo, yeah the achilles is cool. first one i've been able to keep successfully. he's in there with a sohal and a chevron too.

thanks soccerbag! no zeo, but i do use some ideas from them (salt, alk levels...) only things i do dose besides what comes out of the CA reactor (or some alk, ca on the side) is strontium and bromide.

zef004, thanks!

LUVSPS, year and half to two years i think.

What is the bulb combo you are running on your Tek's? Same on both sides? And speaking of the other side...are we gonna get a shot of that?

Did you start this tank from frags or did you move some colonies in an upgrade? Phenomenal growth either way. But if you tell me you started from frags a year and a half - 2 years ago, I'm obviously doing something very, very wrong! : )

quite of few of these grew from small frags, others started out as your basic aquaculture size and some are wild colonies that have doubled in size. other brown ones are trying to make a come back from earlier days of torture, then i went though my days of trying to turn brown corals around which are some too.

Damn! I'm speechless. It really is one of the nicest tanks I've seen. I just can't get over the colors and overall health of your pieces. Well done.
