First Congrats.
Second the thread says 210 gallon but the measurements gave are 80" X 28" X 28" which is 270 gallons.
Beautiful Tank none the less.

Thanks everyone :-)

to TRITON1: I want to try acrylic for its better transparency, sorry I have not more info on the stands construction, a local vendor do it for me.

to plancton: It is hard to find good ultra white glass in Beijing, so I want to try acrylic for better transparency, I am also worring about the problem of acrylic as you mentioned, but I want to try it anyway :-)

to kvmn: the sump is 60"x 20"x20" in dimension but the water level is very shallow. First section is about 28" long for skimmer and other equipment, second section is about 20" long for refugium(In fact the alage in refugium is growing very slow now.), third section is about 12" long for return pump.

to mingxu: I think most of LPS and soft coral could be well with SPS, but I will be care of mushroom and leather coral.

to Jeremy B.:Thanks, I am also considering add more VHO light:-)

to andrewk529: I use these to build a small section in refugium, the new fish will be put in this section for a while to accept food.

to bogg: it is soft drain pipes connected with PVC drain pipes from main tank.

to Demonic: the water level of main tank is only about 24"

to chingchai: here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6FDNfLDIEY , but I could not access YouTube from China now, so I could not reply comments :-(

I love the colors in your tank. Bravo!

It would be very interesting to see photos and whatnot about your stand - it sounds very different from the normal stuff we've got here in the US =)

Thanks, friends

to ThinIce: If you mean the blue staghorn in the middle of the tank, I guess it is Acropora hoeksemai.

to pioassad: I have never used DSB, I used thin sand bed in main tank for view.

to SaveOurReefs: welcom to Beijing

to jdarr: here it is the diagram for the lighting system:


to inktomi: sorry I have no more photos could show the detail of the stand, when I got it, it has been paint. It used wood of elm tree for the framework, with mortise and tenon Joints.
