Thanks all friends, Today i'm very happy. It's an anniversary my son and 5 years of SiamReefClub Thailand and the highest honor that I get from here.

It's hard to find one day that will make me happy like this.

In all the full-tank pictures your tank has very good visual balance. I admire very much your mature colonies and how the structure almost seems to float off of the bottom. The arrangement is well concieved to provide a perception of depth with open spaces, and you've made great use of the height of the tank as well.

Many tanks look like a managery of coral perched on top of rocks - I know my last tank always left me with that impression. Your tank has an open and light feeling that I would like to achieve next time. An inspiration, thanks for showing it here.


Current Tank Info: 65G reef shut down 2007. 25G planted.

How much time did it take for your coral to have a significant growth? Last month my frag grew...about 2cm under 20k radiums. Yesterday I changed the MH to a 10k since I have been reading that corals grow faster under 10k. What do you say about this?

75g(display), 30g sump, GFO Reactor, SG 1.026, Ca 420, Mag 1350, PO4 0, & 8.0 dKh. Lighting: MH 20000k Radiums & Actinics. Flow: (3) Koralias, 2, 1050, 1400, Seio M820 & a Mag 5 return. Berlin Red Sea(upgrading soon) skimmer with a Rio pump.

Current Tank Info: 75g SW + 40g planted

Absolutely spectacular looking tank. Well done!

Whoa! Gorgeous tank. Nice full grown stags. I'm sure that as you look at those pictures, the coral has since grown.

Wow! This Says So Much! New SW Tanker!

Water clarity is beautiful! I've so much to learn (nearly 3 months in), and cannot say enough of what I have learned off of this Forum from the threads and experienced Reefers. I still don't understand the protein skimmer set-up (do not have one). Fish are OK so far - below is my set-up (probably started too large a tank for a SW Newbie). Suggestions?! Thank you!

This is my basic set-up:
90 gallon SW Tank w/crushed coral base.
FX5 Filter.
T5 lights w/atinecs.
No protein skimmer yet - type?
Aprox. 80 lbs. of Rock/Live Rock
Live Plants
Fish Stock:
1 Yellowfin Damel
1 6 line Wrasse
1 Male Athia (Pink Spot)
1 Lemonpeel Angelfish
2 False Percula Clowns
1 Copperband Butterfly
1 Mandarian Dragonette
All of the above seem OK and getting along for 2 weeks to 3 months.
Did get an attack of Cyno - cleared up.
Lost 2 Blennies (eyelash, lawnmower, however in the last month - 1st probably to Cyno, 2nd - ?)
