That is one amazing tank, although I do agree the tang looks to one-dimensional to look real. Maybe I'm wrong though? :unsure:

True true. Didn't look closely. Still, that must be a TINY firefish and a TINIER blue tang.

 

 

I saw a 1.5" blue tang like that today at the lfs. It's most likely just a juvenile. That's just my $0.02000001 though (<---every little bit counts in this economy ;) )

 

 

EDIT: when you blow the pics up, it does look like there were retouched with some kind of editing software. Maybe not to the point of the tang being photoshopped in, but definitely screwed with.

I found the guy's website: http://marcelo.jp

 

On his website, it says:

 

"Em 1999 monta um nano reef para criar corais e peixes marinhos para pesquisa e referências."

 

Which, translated, means:

 

"In 1999 reef mounts a nano to create marine chorales and fish for research and references."

 

So it looks like this reef is a reference from his work. Could it possibly be 10 years old?

i like the look of mangroves growing out of a HOB, or something like it like here. I have mine on that back of my 72, , but if I had a tank that was viewable from both sides that is a great way to do it, you would only see that piece of wall anyway. Thanks for sharing the tank! Some good design ideas. Not sure on the stocking, but...

Isn't that tank one of those 6.6 gallon bookshelf tanks you can buy? Looks like one and they are 6.6 gallons. Looks like they mighta just removed the rims. See link below...

Why would someone fake this? This isn't a photoset that someone was publicizing ... I was just searching for reefs on Flickr and came across it, so I posted it here.

 

I agree, it boggles my mind how that lighting is enough for that SPS ... but something has to be working correctly here. His tank looks amazing.

The firefish will not last long in an open top tank. I like the little gobies. I feel bad there is a blue tang, though.

He may have "optimized" the photo with photoshop otherwise seems legit.

Crap I wish I would have seen this before I did my 7 gallon cube..

if the tank truly is that small that could actually be a lot of light... it's just a different style that we don't see in this country (unfortunately).

 

but in Japan those spotlights are more common in reef tanks:

and one from this country:

After viewing the rest of the pics in his account I am not so sure. The tang is definately a juvi as you can tell in the closeups. The firefish looks a little out of proportion and although I still think the tang looks small (like thumbnail size) I won't pass judgement yet.

 

If it is real, the tank looks as it's doing well and all inhabitants seem like they would be ok in the tank for the mean time with the exception of the tank which is probably fine for a few weeks to months.

It's odd that a person who has researched so much to keep SPS colonies and clams would add a blue tang to a pico.

I was suspicious at first also, but... I think those are un-altered photos.
