Thanks all! I'm starting to get the phase whereby I am planning the shutdown of the tank. Don't worry, it will be an upgrade and will be some time off yet - but planning has commenced :)

thanks, those zoa's aren't any fancy named thing as far as I know - but I love them :)

No plans set in stone just yet for the new tank, just succession planning as this tank approaches the 6 year mark

hahaha all good folks, I just like to take my time planning every step of the process. We are still 12 months plus away from taking water out of this tank :)

Question : Were you into the hobby for quite some time before this tank? Because from the beginning of the thread it seems as if after only 4-5 months of having a relatively modest tank you up and plucked down about $8-Grand or more for all the bells and whistles (including camera lenses), and were able not only to hit the ground running, but be highly successful... am I missing something? And does “natural seawater” mean you get water from the ocean delivered? Sorry if these are ignorant questions. Thanks!

Hey, thanks for the questions! This thread is a little misleading as I posted all the updates here after I’d been had the tank running for about a year, so it looked like it happened very quickly when in reality I’d had it going for a little while.

Tank will be 6 years old in a couple months and I’ve been in the hobby 7 years.

Natural salt water is saltwater from the ocean delivered :)

Very nice tank!! Nice pictures too! Thanks for sharing!!
Could you tell us the changes you have noticed after you have changed to halides? Better colors/ colony structure/ growth?
What about shaded areas under the colonies and dead spots?
Is it too early to tell? How long has been?
Can you please list what fixture that is and the ballasts?
Thanks in advance!
