They do not pick on corals much but it is quite hard to tell because most of my corals have been picked at by my butterfly fish . I will attempt to do a FTS of my current tank and post it on this forum . It is a semi outdoor tank so it is quite hard to get the lighting right as there is excessive glare due to natural sunlight reflection .

You are welcome ! The completion date should be around Jun 2017 . We also have a glass bridge across the top of the aquarium for feeding and for taking selfie . All Reef central members will get a deep discount . We also have an aqua room where you can sleep with the fish , the first and only one in Thailand .

what does it do? I mean, it says sand filter, so I'm assuming it uses sand as a bio media to filter? But I could be way off.

Sea anemones are protected from the butterflies by Clownfish.

Dave. M is totally correct as they are normally used in swimming pools but large aquaria do need a mechanical filter system to keep the water clean and clear .So instead of using socks , sand filters are frequently employed in large aquaria .

An example of sand filters used in large aquaria like this 20,000 gallon tank in long island.
