I do not know if the entire volume of the main tank goes out through overflow boxes. There is an entire tank that the public does not see, but which provides the limitless horizon seen from the front side of the main tank. At the top of this second tank is another tidal pool, where water overflows from the main tank. This is where they grow some corals, propagate mangroves and release fish so they can swim out into the main tank only when they are ready to explore further. New fish can stay in the tide pool for days and weeks before venturing out into the larger display.

Much of the water in the tank is pumped through to a row of rotating splash buckets along one edge of the main tank. The buckets fill and dump in a crescendo of flushing power. This action breaks the water surface, retards any build-up of scum or oily surface and mixes the upper waters with those below it.

This sounds nice, but I've never seen it on this tank, although it is only about 2 miles from my house...

You don't see the overflowboxes because they are hidden behind the rockwork. In each of the two back-corners there is an overflowbox. Splash buckets aren't used either: they would make too much noise and -even worse- too much bubbles.

It seems that the Dendronephthya installed in the right side of the tank have now been in the system for well over one year. There is a phytoplankton reactor on the system.

It would be very interesting to find out how the Dendronephthya are doing at this time (14 months?). This information would mean a great deal to me.

WOW..... he should charge admission for people to see that thing. I paid $23 to go to Shedd Aquarium and none of their reef tanks were even CLOSE to that incredible. Job well done sir. I was speechless looking at the pictures.

Just had to bump this TOTM so as to continue the sense of inadequacy felt by all reefers after looking at this tank.

Just astounding. I can't believe it's been almost 2 years since I first saw this tank and I'm still in awe of it.
