Very nice! Is the bottle of JB on top of the skimmer for carbon dosing?

Hello again,

Scrapz, thanks. Yes, I have some pics of the corals.

Ching, thanks. And I wish we could visit you some day and see your magnificent project in person. Just a little off-topic and so you now, your thread is being followed carefully and with great joy by many reefers out here. Thank you for sharing that.

Here goes some:













Bob, no. The bottle was just to give a dimensional reference of the skimmers and Sump/Quarantine area.


Regards,
André

I think some of those coral colors are obtained because of the T5's. If they were under halides, the colors would be different...

I agree with henrystyle. I have definately noticed a huge coloration change in the corals in my frag tank after changing from 250 watt DE MH to 6 bulbs of T5. The result is no less beautiful, just different. The most noticeable difference is that the corals get more of a pastel hue to them with the T5 lighting.

This is a fact....different lights will give the same corals different coloration. This is why I ask sellers what kind of light they keep there corals under. Nothing like buying a frag you really like and it switches up on you after it gets into your tank....lol

I love the floral tube idea, I think Im going to take your idea and modify it, I am going to make molds of the floral picks in plaster then cast my own ceramic "floral tubes" with ceramic slip and have them fired in a friend kiln. I should be able to make a bunch for cheap as a 5gal. bucket of cermic slip is $20 ish and the supplies to make the mold cant be more than $15

I think he mentioned earlier that he does not sell his frags. What he does with them when they grow out is a mystery

He sells them but he's prohibited to selling them here on RC. The nature of his thread is the journey of building his prop tanks from start to finish. Not to sell them.

here's a thought, line up the frags by colors like a rainbow instead of having them scatter. arrange them by color...that would be a sight! please try that and post picture. maybe not all the frags, 100 will do. looking forward to the picture.
