Congratulations for TOTM! I am also in Asia and it is nice to see such wonderful work. Are many things available from lfs or do you order. Chingchai has also been helpful to me. My new tank will be delivered in two days. It is similiar in size to yours and made by local craftsmen. I am very interested in setting up like yours.

Best regards

Neil

Congratulations on your tank and aquafarm !!

I rarely come to Beijing but would be very interested in visiting your farm the next time I come up. Where did you get the brachionus for the first food of the babies ?

If you come to Shanghai, I can give you some chaetomorpha that I brought back from a diving trip to Komodo.

I am currently between tanks and it is being kept in a LFS at the moment with the rest of my livestock.

Good luck for the future !
Sylvain

Thanks, guys :-)

to NeilFox: Thanks, many corals in my tank is ordered directly from vendors in south China, most LFS in Beijing still could not keep SPS for long time.

to snadaud: Welcome to Beijing and AMF aquafarm, all the rotifers is got from Florida Aqua Farms Inc. actually you could get it in China also. Thanks for the chaetomorpha

to mal1099: Sorry I do not know the ID of this fish, in China they call it as "blue eye anthias", and it is not aggresive in my tank.

Agreed - reefkeeping is international, and Europe has been seen as a leader for so long.

Nice tank - congrats Hu

Congratulations on a well designed gorgeous tank!

I'm curious how much the LED adds to the coral color - could you post a photo of the tank with just the halides and VHO (without LED) for comparison?

to johara: Sorry I have no photo in hand, it is not very much adds to coral color with eyes when the halides is on.

Wells, in your refugium, do you use live sand or Magic mud or others? Ming

Do you mean that the color of the corals is about the same whether or not the LEDs are on? Or did you mean the coral color is not as good with only halides?

I'm curious because I know almost nothing about the LEDs or their effect on coral coloration.

how do the blue damsels behave with the lemon peel angel? Just curious as I would like to combine the 2 in a 180. Have you had them together for a long time? You mentioned you had several angels at one time, does the lemon peel nip much at the clams?

Cheers!!
Fantastic looking tank. Congrats!!!
