The stand is combined two IKEA BESTA units with glossy door panels.

 

I don't have filtration. I hope to rely on live rocks and 10% water change weekly. Hope it will be fine. Fingers crossed! If it fails, I may add a sump and skimmer in the future.

I didn’t even know you can be successful without filtration?!?! You have just made my weekend! OMG IM so excited!

I see you're making big water changes now. ;)

 

Next thing you know, you're going to do 70% water changes. :)

Haha. It's possible if I keep adding critters to my tank. So far, nitrate 0, phosphate <0.03ppm at the end of each week. Which is good I think. :)

I pm'd. Since he handpicks all his corals, I'm sure he can get you something awesome.

 

Richard replied! Thanks so much! He has a Yellow Splatter Hammer and he is showing it to me now. :)

I'm sure it's been asked before, but what camera/lens are you using?

I saw this acropora that I have always wanted showing on LFS facebook! It's extremely rare, only one frag left when I went to get it within one day! My LFS has one colony in their display tank and only frag it once in a while. Guest what it is? :)

 

My pictures doesn't show it's true color, it should look kind of faded blue color.
