Hi All! I'm a reefer from Singapore who has been reefing for 5 years or so. Just wanted to start a thread at this wonderful platform to share my journey and to hear some feedback about my reef such that I can improve on my practices! My current tank is about a year old now and it s 5 Feet Mixed Reef.

Attached are some pictures about the concept and the specifications of my tank build!

Did a shoot for my tank using my DSLR a couple of months ago.. not very good at taking photos though, would love to hear comments on how I can manage my white balance and various other settings to capture the true colours of my reef :)20.jpg 21.jpg 221.JPG 222.JPG 223.JPG 224.JPG 226.JPG 227.JPG 228.JPG
