Your tank is always full of healthy corals. But I notice a significant change in the general colouration this time. To what would you attribute this? Is it the LEDs, do you think, or could it be a change in the amount of natural light vs artificial light?

Thanks Dave. I've been running the display ONLY on sunlight for the last yeah and a half....so SPS will have the browned out look. The LED i'm hoping now will had some color back into the mix.

Great tank, great pics. Your posts always make me stop and look a little more closely! I'll enjoy following your "new" tank.

Thanks....actually the colors were a pure result of running off sunlight the last 18 months. The Orpheks have been running for less than a week. So when they "kick in"....i'm sure the colors will look even better!

Added a few more pieces into the display, and did some rearranging









A bit difficult to get a clear FTS as there is no wall backdrop....see through tank, pics of corals in my frag tank coming through
