Really great tank, and such sweet corals. Thanks for sharing your info to, there seems to be a lot of folks that don't or wouldn't want to share the kinda info you have shared.
Thanks for you openness.

Tank looks amazing. Any chance we can get some underwater pics of these in their natural environment next time you go collecting?

What a beautiful collection of corals and wonderfull set-up you've created! A credit to you.
I bet it's even more stunning to see in person.

I'd also like to add my thanks for such an interesting thread, not only for your photos but all the info also.

I too would love to see some photos taken whilst your diving if you have the ability to do this. It is very rare to see photographs of either Rics or Zoos taken in their natural habitats. Would make very interesting viewing.

Nice work and please keep up the updates.

Old thread, but I guess this guy takes brain coral too. Clearly seen in photo #2. I guess it could be from aquacultured rock, But i was under the impression any rock with coral growing on it must not be harvested.

Very awesome corals and interesting topic on collection. I hate to say it about collection permits, but if those go away, people will harvest these corals illegally. Just saying, if someone is determined enough, a law will not stop them.

I believe this collection from this tank was sold years ago on eBay. I remember because I bid on it. I believe he moved to another country and could not take them with him, but my memory could be wrong.
