Arcus Reef - Boyu TL-550

Recommended Posts

Arcus

Hello reef friends! ;)

 

I would like to share with you my BOYU TL-550 reef tank that I started in November last year.

 

Plan is to keep soft corals (I love zoanthus and palythoa especially) and sweet LPS corals :lol:

 

Sine I work as Automation Programmer for one big Italian steel company I travel a lot and I buy my corals all around. Currently I work on one project in north Italy and I bought here some sweet zoas and LPS corals that are still not on photos.

 

I used water, live rock,sand, some corals and fishes from my bigger 2 years old tank.

 

So, lets start :D

Here are last photos of my tank. Sorry for this crazy pink/blue color, my brother don't know to set up right WB.

 

Au revoir. ;)

5 YEARS LATER:

 

Reef is still alive and healthy. Most of the LPS had to be removed from tank because zoanthus mania got me hard and needed extra space for all this beautiful zoa morphs.

 

6-line wrasse is alive and its longest living fish in my reef since I'm in this hobby (10+ years). He become legend of this tank and I love him so much!

 

All Ecotech Marine products are working great. Original Boyu skimmer is removed from tank few years ago and tanks is running without skimmer.

 

Recently I bought Reef Factory Thermo control and in plan is also to buy Level keeper. Didn't have any other investments for tech. devices.

Looking fantastic!  Great to see it doing so well after so many years!  Love those red mushrooms.  Has your lighting stayed the same?
