Always loved the look of an acan garden. I've heard rumors about the stores in Canada as having some of the best for Aussie collections. Way to Go!!!

Congrats on your Achievement. What a collection of Acans...Wow. Any plans on upgrading to a larger tank to allow for more room for your acans to grow out?

that is a great looking tank.
I got a ? for you. Do you have all of your acans placed on rock for growth or are you growing them on the bottom of the tank?
And if they are on the bottom have you noticed slower growth compared to the ones on the rock?

Awsome Tank!
Thanks for the comments on the lighting combinations, they are very interesting and I might try some variations on my lps dominated tank.

In the description. Do you put zeolitic material in your second chamber calcium reactor? Just wondering if this has any benefits.

thanks!
