Wow. Considering the amount of discipline it takes to keep those living and parameters maintained, looks great in the photo, but Idk how healthy stuff is either though.

I was just going to ask the same thing
On that note, yeah the salinity seems a little high. I have a research article that said a higher salinity may help prevent the tissue necrosis in Lps, spa, however that is not in a home aquarium environment.. from my experiment on a few coral frags, too high of a specific gravity contributes to coral decline and eventually results in death.. but I am no scientist.. 1.025-1.027 is the range that things live in, higher they start to die, lower they get sick, or die..
