Thank you, it's 20 gallons in the display, I also have a 10 gallon sump. The tank is stock rimless glass. I am moving toward SPS as they seem to do better than the LPS in my tank.

 

 

Sick!!

More pictures please.

 

Thank you.

The reef is still young, only 6 months. I'm slowly removing LPS in the tank, my long tentacle plate takes up too much space. Thank you.

That sump setup is awesome. You seem to be getting some great colors. How are the biopellets doing in your system?

Pellets are doing quite well, reactor has been up for 2 months. I am dosing K and aminos which I think contributes to better colour.

Few more new additions, still trying to confirm the specific names of these chalice. I was told the bright green one might be Riddles Chalice and it needs high light. The other two I was told need med light.

Thanks, I have put a lot of work into it in the 7 months it has been up. Some success and some failures, I just enjoy the learning aspect of it all. It's so addicting, I think I have the Chalice bug now :blink: !

Thanks Paigee, funny you should say that, I'm in the middle of changing some things. Mostly corals. I feel it's too crowded, I will post a new FTS when it's done.

WOW !!! This is one of the cleanest builds I've seen. Your corals have such intense colors. Do you have a picture of your tank and sump in the same shot?
