Very beautiful tank, and a great write up Ming. Congratulations.
How do you keep your b/f out of your coral, especially your lps?

Thanks. I have lost 2 sps when they grew too close to bubble coral. Frogspawn seems to be ok under orange plate, and has not caused any problem so far to the LPS around.

Ming congrats. You and your tank will always be what keeps me motivated to push the limits. You have worked long and hard for this day, I have seen yuo throught the tough times and they just seemed to just slide off your back like water. You and your tank are one of a kind.

Very nice mixture of coloration and pruning, goes to prove that when a man loves something so much, he can make art out of life. Excellent work hope to reach your level of refinement someday.

Thank you very much Abe. You are my best reef friend, and you have seen and have helped me in every stage of this tank. I would like to share this honor with you.
