VERY nice... I might have to set up a non-photosynthetic tank after seeing this one

I think the main problem is a lot of the non-photosynthetic livestock in LFS these days are almost long-gone before we can even get our hands on them...

How is the livestock where you're located?

This is what we call a tank of the month! Likely be tank of the year! and to me it is the best tank ever as "tank of the month"!

I always consider keeping non-photosynthetic coral a real challenge, and that you have done a really good job keeping them healthy and colourful....for those of us who used to SPS, your's is such a simple and elegant set-up with bright colour that we have never dream off.

Keep going!

My friend Lukasz Kur has a shop (acropora.pl), so if I need any livestock I simply ask him if he could byi if for me, he supplies in Germany and Holland.

Also sometimes I'm buying corals in other local shops.

Pawel, i think that you are pouring in so much of nutrients in water, all that you need is to stick with fauna marin food and that will be enough

Great tank, and is that glass starfire? What camera you are using? Only one light?

tank of the month

Awesome tank man. Looks very nice. Where do you get your dry food...ultra pac, ultra min, ultra seafan? What brand are those? i've never been successful with seafans and i like them very much. i would buy one or two and they'll live for a few months then they would just die. Let me know. thanks.
