Thanks Krzysztof, have you been using the New Generation bulbs long?

I guess it gets the blue spectrum between the ABS and the B+, right?

I began with one bulb, I liked its spectrum, so added two more. I've been using them for several months.
It's exactly like you wrote. ABS gets a bit yellowish light, NG hasn't got this admixture.

Very nice tank! I love the diversity of the colors throughout the scaping. It's tanks like this that give the newer generation of hobbyists, like myself, continuous inspiration to learn and one day have enjoyment of success like yourself!!

Awesome reef! It sounded like you used to run zeovit system. Are you still running it or did you just take some of the ideas from it. What can you tell us about maintaining nice rich colors?

Congratulation Krzysztof,


Beautiful Tank. Well Done..... ....
To maintain calcium and alkalinity, how much ml (Milliliter) you dose the tank every day.

Absolutely beautiful tank!

^Couldn't agree more.

Question: Do your angels nip at the polyps or your clam? I just double checked to see if you have a clam, it does look like one in the first pic, but I don't see it listed anywhere.
