Well deserved. One question: Why do you dose 2 types of two part?
Kent Marine Nano 2-part additive (Tuesday, Thursday)
B-Ionic 2-part additive (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)

Can I help it that I am a REEFING ICON and everyone wants to talk to me???

Thanks!
No special reason on the dosing regimen. I started with the Kent Marine and eventually added the B-Ionic to supplement calcium when I started adding the SPS and clams. I compared the labels and the Kent Marine contains trace elements that don't appear to be in the B-Ionic so I decided to use both.

Excellent idea, the TOTM, and a beautiful tank with which to start it off.

Hats off to CM and Junkitu!

Your profile is awesome. I like the description you provide and the setup you have and the pictures help too. I will be using this as a guide to better my tank.

I now have a new inspiration tank. :)

Fabulous job, Junkitu. Your tank is undoubtedly one of the MOST CREATIVE presentations I've seen, ever. Photos of "Mushroom House" in early 2007 made me dedicate so much of my time to reefkeeping. I owe you my sanity. Thanks for the inspiration.

Wow! What an inspirational tank. I love all of the diversity in there. I just hope my tank can be half as good as yours in 20 months. Keep up the good work.

Congrats Junkitu!

More kudos for this most amazingly beautiful tank!

point is that before you post you should figure out what the ethos of the thread is. you tweens come in like a herd of horny goats humping every thread in sight, then get surprised when people try to beat you with bamboo canes.

Congratulations man. Along with members like icenine and ez, you set a great example of the high standard that can be set with nano reefing.

Every time your "cube" doesn't have the same dimensions on each side, a little bit of reef dies.

I'm all about suckering the noobs. I've made plenty of good money off them.

Well deserved. When I try to explain to people what a nano-reef can look like, it is your tank that I show them. I usually don't have much more explaining to do afterward.
