Nice looking tank. Mine's been running 3 months. Are you having good luck keeping the SPS under stock lighting?

I was a little concerned at first about the lighting but so far so good. I have them as close to the lighting as I can get them and they are doing great. I have new growth on both pieces so it looks like the stock lighting is sufficent to keep SPS.

I really like using it. It makes it so much easier to see water quality issues and you can track your expenses to the cent! If you keep up on it I believe that your tank can remain healthier. I dont' think I am using the Pro version, it looks like you have to pay for that. I am using whatever verison was free.

Beautiful setup and nice corals! I think it's gonna' bring in more good energy to your office and business! I'm very curious about your prior tank setup --Eclipse 12-- did you have to change the lighting on it and was the bio-wheel sufficient? What else were require to have it up running successfully? Your pics of setup is great for beginners like me. Thanks for the thread and keep up the good work w/ Red Sea Max! :)...is there a way to a copy of the software? :huh: thanks.

Thank you. It really looks a lot more professional in my office than my Eclipse 12 did. I upgraded that tank to the MAX. I added a 96W 50/50 retro and a 32w actinic only in the hood. Took out the stock filtration and ran a fluval 105 canister filter. Added a remora nano skimmer. It was a good tank but messing with the equipment became a pain and i bit the bullet and got my office max!you can download the software herehttp://www.infinitysoft.net/ReefCon/

Thank you. The software really helps me visualize problems before they kill anything. I was very impressed with the corals from sealifeinc.com I will buy from them agian soon before It gets too cold to ship to Illinois.
Any updates?
Not at this time. After my clown caught brook, I'm sure I bought it with this disease, I am letting my tank detoix before buying any more fish. My corals and other fish seem to be fine. I have nice coraline growing eveywhere and all corals have nice new growth. I will post any pictures when update become available.

I don't know...... He is whiter than the other common hermit I have in the tank. I have had him for some time now, he came from my old tank. Is there such a thing?

When did you add the starfish? I'd watch him close, their known to crush corals.

I added him about three weeks ago now, whenever I bought from reefscavengers. But I just took those pictures. He spent two weeks in a cave and didn't move an inch. They say very reefsafe yet it may eat snails/crabs if i don't feed him properly..... It may not have been the best buy but i'm impulsive sometimes

Thanks, hes a cruiser too, i think he takes 50+ laps around every inch daily. I have blue red and brown crabs, i guess he's the white guy of the bunch... I try to keep it multi cultural, I don't need the ACLU on my a$$ Edited by StevieT

NICE!!! love the idea, i thought it would be cool to put "fancy" shells in the tank. Have one all pimped out with gold and a pimp hat....

 

I think I need to put some Atlas Copco logos on some shells, then I could expense the entire tank under "marketing/trade shows"
