Gorgeous set up Brahm, thanks for sharing!

There's a lady I've known forever. She's taken ill as of late.
On top of that, she's being abused by those to whom she has given everything... Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides. Just breaks my heart. Maybe, if we join together, we can help her heal.
She's well over 230 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is 'America'... And I love her and I have always been proud of her.

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

Great looking tank and good write up. It's impressive to see how your tank has thrived in spite of the AEFW. a testament to your husbandry. I wish you well in eradicating them.

Beautiful. Great Job.
I was curious. How long has this tank been set up? You mentioned in the article that some of your corals started out as tiny specs. Did most of your livestock start as frags or did you purchase large specimens?

Thanks for the inspiration. This November will by one year for me and my tank.
