Congratulations Teo, your tank is inspiring for a lot of us. Truly amazing.
I would like to know a bit more about the DIY dimmer for the T5's. Are there links or plans you can share?

regards,
Waffleman

Very Nice!

How much live rock do you have and what method did you use for mounting the corals?

I must say the aquascaping on this tank is very appealing and natural. Many times I see large aquariums with high-end equipment and healthy corals, but a lackluster haphazard aquascape lets the whole tank down IMHO. Your tank is a true benchmark of a successful reef-scape.

My friend aquascaping took me several months. Almost every week i changed a little piece of rock to make it look more attractive.
I have about 40 kg of live rock in my tank and it is placed in rods from hard teflon attached firmly to bases of teflon. I use a drill and "tire ups" to attach each piece with others.

At the following pics you can see the same bases at one of my friends tank.

Well said! A realistic tank for the average person. Teo did you notice any difference before/after zeovit and was it a significant change? BTW, Great looking tank!

Thanks nomadic!

I use the 150s since i started reefkeeping and i am very satisfied from the growth of my corals. Also i use 5 39 watt T5 , at a total of 500 watt per 80 gallons.
Moreover i have seen tanks full of sps which run only with T5 and are fantastic.
One of my favorites is this one ... http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2008-07/totm/index.php

Thank you so much IndyReefMan !
As far as the zeovit schedule is concerned :
Every day: zeostart , sponge power.
Tuesday-friday : zeobak , zeofood
Monday-wednesday-saturday: coral snow , Pohls xtra , amino acid lps , amino acid , coral vitalizer.

The doses are dependent on the bioload and the gallons of the tank .

I wish the best for your tank too , mate!
I first noticed the changes on the coral's colour after 2 months had passed.
I noticed a little bit brighter colours with greater polyp extension.
The zeovit system runs for a year now and i can say that i didnt find any difficulties at the procedure.
