Hi Ching, I keep checking back several times a day and am just so blown away by quality and size of this system, especially being in a house! It is truely beyond museum quality! How long did your planning/design process take?

Bob. Thanks for your kind words.
I gave the idea of this project to my friend and it took her about two month for the design.

Wow! I can't believe only two months for the design. It would've taken me years and still probably not come up with anything this good! Absolutely amazing!

Truly one of the best setups chingchai.
I would like to ask you about the corals in your area. Are they imported from all over, And what about sps from Australia, do you get any? In Ontario Canada the LFS get some REALLY NICE pieces.

Thanks.

Most of the corals are coming from Indonesia.
Yes, we did get some Aussie SPS. But they are quite expensive.
How about pricing in Canada? Is it reasonable?

Checked out one of the webcams this morning 4am our time we saw a lady demonstrating your retractable lighting system. This is going to be a great reef system once the tank is stocked; I am not say when it is finished because once you start it never ends only gets better. Have you decide on how you will be doing your reefscape in the tank? Keep up the good work.

That lady is the one who desire this whole project.
Yes, you are right. This tank will be like the never-ending story. Tough but must be fun and enjoyable.

I have a good friend who is the best I've ever known to do my reefscape.

Yesterday, they took out freshwater and do the last step cleaning.
I am planning to put SW in on this Wednesday.
But when I inspect the tank, there is too many scratches on the panel so I have to call tankmaker to do the fine polish. They will be here very soon.
