Well done, Zon.

Please post your filtration methods, tank dimensions etc.

Did you notice a difference between the FM royal blue tube and the ATI Blue+.

What colour is the aqua science tube?. similar to ATI Aquablue special or coral +?

Thanks
Mo

Thank You all guys! :bounce1:

nothing , i let they do waht they want.. many colony are touching ..one live one die (only single branch)..when i look rare or good like animals suffer i cut the neighbour..(but i think to do a big fraggin next month to regulate general grow)

Well done, Zon.

filtration is only a bk 250 and a zeo reactor..i follow the zeolight method from fauna marin

Ultra royal blue is different from ATI blue + or giesemann actinic plus that i used before..is more deep blue even at eyes then in tank..and have no greenish look like the others.. is a wonderful tube..very similar to old narva blue but push more on actinic range.

Aquascience special 15000 are totally identical to giesemann aquablue plus & ATI AB special.. too yellowish..i prefer for sure DUO that have more blu & red tint inside..but are not more available until february here..when i can have i change all 4..

As everyone has stated, that is a masterpiece of a reef tank! Bravo!

What is the size of the tank? Can we see more? Pics of the sump and the rest of how you accomplish things, water top-off, water changes, etc......

It certainly is a beautiful tank, however we know very little about it. Nominating it may be fine, but I think we should know more about it, seeing how it progressed, etc, This should be known before it's TOTM. Heck, we have no clue about much of this tank including volume and there's no certainty it's still in existence since these pics are all we have to go by.

Again, it's obviously a very masterfully cared for tank, but I think it's premature to vote it TOTM. JMO of course and this is no reflection on the OP. :)

I'm a simple guy. I really, really like, I nominate. Its not like there are a plethora of nominations out there. The smart folks that decide on TOTM worthiness can take it from there. :)

I guess you're right. I actually have no idea how it works. :) Yes it's a really beautiful tank. No doubting that part.

I don't really know how it works either. I do know that I searched two months back in the nominations forum and there were no nominations, so why not make a nomination?

Hi guys and thanks.. I had post some other info on my display tank in others topics..is not ready to be a TOTM for sure i'm really not satisfied yet..must work on colorations deeper..i'm a perfectionist trust me.. But i can answer at all your question easily.. Tank is 140x80x60h cm.. Total volume with sump is 200 gallons and i use a bk250 deluxe a zeo reactor with 2 liters of media calcium reactor ( all ultrareef brand) and deltec eflow 10 return pump) light is a 12 tubes hybrid powermodule (8+4) and flow is given by 3 mp40 and a gyre 150 ..
