She's well over 230 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is 'America'... And I love her and have always been proud of her.

Current Tank Info: 220 gal reef with 200+ gals of sump and refugium.

This is one of my favorite TOTM thus far. I love how every inch of real estate is covered with a wide variety of life... anemones, polyps, sps. It's a true underwater garden.

Great job! As imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I would like to imitate some aspects of your tank. Do you have pictures of your tank before it grew in to the beauty it is? I would like to see how you arranged the live rock.

Later,Adam
