Its great to see a TOTM without all the gizmos, a 400g tank, and a fish room! Your tank is truelly stunning, something we can all aspire to. Well done!

My friends ,

there are no words to describe my feelings for being a TOTM !
I am very very happy that you liked my reef and voted for it and i would like to thank you also for your kind words !
I cant think of a better "reward" for a reefer who spends lots and lots of time taking care his "pets" !
I wish the best for all of you and your tanks!

Many of you wonder how so many fish can live in a 80g tank. Luck i would say is the first factor.
All of my fish live together from last christmas and i had only a few fights between my blue tang
and my regal after the regal was put in the tank but lasted only 1-2 days (btoh of them were purchased tiny) .
Another reason that makes the living harmonic its the great number of caves and places where fish can hide .
There is plenty of live rock in my tank and the aquascape is designed so as to look natural but also to make the living of my fish free of stress.
The filtration is another parameter that keeps things in balance.
Two skimmers , refugium with chaeto and zeovit method keep my NO3 and PO4 undetectable .
Last but not least water changes 10% per week help me to maintain a very viable tank for my fish.
