Beautiful! I was interested in seeing the work area for the tank - I can see that it is an in-wall display. Do you have a fish room? If so, what are the dimensions of the room?

Great tank, do you have some problems with zebrasoma fl. (bacterial infections) ?

Congratulations Sullivan on a very well deserved award! Both your tank and photography are superb. The work you guys do at e-Coralia is first rate and I'm very happy to also be part of the family there .

Beautiful Tank!!!!
+1 on the Bulb combination, what is your bulb combination? How many do you have on at a time? In the article it mentions that you have them on for 12 hours, but I was wondering how many are on at a time? How long do you have all of the bulbs at once? Also, how far off the water are your lights?
I am using a Powermodule, but I am having problems with the coloration of the corals, some are turning brown, some are turning white.
Thanks, Jeff

congrats on the TOTM! I really love the fish selection you have. Lamarck's and Bellus Angels, and Flame and Arc Eye Hawkfish? Not to mention a LeatherJacket! Very interesting choice with the Hawkfish and LeatherJacket in a reef, but it looks awesome! I am a huge fan of both the Angels that you have, and one day I hope to house a Bellus.

Very great job on the tank.

Thanks again to everyone!!

Venezzo, thats not a bad idea, a NF tank and try to be totm again ...

Haffs09, the gas springs are kitchen cabinets type. The trade is Wurth. But I am not happy with them. I need stronger ones...

giants4pc, Here is the setup post: http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/sh....php?t=1183114

Petar, the problem with the flavecens is a fight wound, possibly with the hepatus.

herozero, yes, it's a Montipora danae, Rainbow.

tntneon, my current combination is:
ATI Blueplus
ATI Aquablue special
ATI Actinic
KZ Fiji
ATI Actinic
ATI Aquablue special
ATI Actinic
ATI Blueplus

jefft321, the get on all at the same time. fron 11am to 11pm. The lights are at 15cm from the water.

seth&angelle, Yes he is, and also eat's majano anemones.

Awesome tank! Do you feel the 3 Prodibio products you use make a big difference in the tank?
