    AYO!

    Seriously interested to know what you guys think of this tank? Personally, I think it's creative and awesome, however I have seen some people hate on it saying the aquascape is not for them :/

    Thoughts?



    (details on this tank are in the YouTube description, just click on the video link)

    Definitely different!

    Corals and clowns seem happy and healthy, if the reefkeeper is as well, then all is good. That empty sandbed does raise an eyebrow, though!

    Very unique! I like it a lot, it’s nice to see some creativity and deviation from the norm.

    It would defiantly look better with just one large SPS colony on the branch. It looks great now but when it grows out there will be a lot of dead coral.

    I'm confused. Isn't this your tank since the usernames matches the username on the video? Just odd how the above questions were phrased. I think its nice and creative.

    How was the branch anchored to the side of the tank I wonder?

    Being an international student from China, I have to admit that Chinese reefers don’t value the lives and wellbeing of livestocks (nearly) as much as they should

    Pongpit has some insanely nice systems, he has some threads on NR and won TOTM not too long ago.

    The corals seem like they are thriving and there are many types in there. It's beautiful and healthy but it honestly wouldn't inspire me to copy the idea. So it's not for me.
    I think it could be a good idea for a rockscape as part of a larger rockscape, if you see what I mean. Like if there were a larger central piece and that "floating" arm was branched from it.
    I just got the feeling that something was "missing" when I first saw the tank. It's a good idea though, something we don't see much or at all.

    I started watching and HATED it!
    Then turned the volume off and LOVE it!

    Words of advice, Metallica goes with everything!
