    This is an awesome build and fantastic progression on the growth of corals. Great job.

    Could you elaborate a bit on the auto change system on how you have it setup. Thanks.

    It is a Genesis Reef[FONT=arial, sans-serif] Systems water change system. I have mine set up to change out 5 gals of water every day. It does it one gallon at a time. The controller you see in the pic turns it on and off throughout the day.[/FONT]

    Here are a few updates to the tank and coral growth. There are a few changes here and there. Everything is doing fine and moving along.

    1 HP Coralife Aquarium Chiller. I have it as a backup in case my AC unit in the room goes out. Other than that it never runs.

    Any update on this tank? I would love to see what another 3-4 months of growth has done to this amazing tank. I've already shown my fiancé this build as a blueprint for my plans once we buy our first home haha

    well, it's been two years since I first put water in my tank. Figured now would be a good time for an up date. Lots of pics, hope you like them.
