    Thanks guys,
    We're almost one week in and the fish are doing great.

    Simon,
    This Achilles is truly a fish to ;Drool over... :p

    I know you can't see the bounce shroom. It's on the back side of the scape, but happy... :)
    (lol)
    Took a walk about when we upped the flow for the Achilles.

    Really impressed with TSM Corals.

    Jay,
    Thanks a lot.
    Still got some re-scaping to do, but not in any big hurry.

    Gotta figure out the spot (Coral Placement) to the right side of the Setosa... :confused:

    Achilles doing great and loving it's nori.

    I just showed off your Achilles to my wife, she is ;Drool. If I knew all I had to do is show pics of everyones fish to get one on my list I would have done that along time ago!

    Thanks for the help Freedie! :D

    Amazing photo's!!!!

    What is that bright yellow coral in the middle? Looks like a Monti Cap but I've never seen one anywhere near that bright! Breathtaking!

    One the top is a deep red setosa on the floor is a golden colored cyphastrea.

    The Aquaclip oranges out the setosa. Kinda of give and take.

    Brew,
    Just about everything is close to true color except the setosa.

    That answered my question on the yellow one as well! They are all super nice! I was amazed the color difference when I googled it. I actually like how yours looks better. :D

    Thanks Fadi,
    We're 21 days in and the Goldflake and Achilles are doing great. Full boat, but the S-400 is at peace.

    I know from your build, that it's normal for your vendors to do a full QT with fish. That just not the case in the USA.

    Working with TSM Corals was well worth the wait and you just don't get any better. Not even a single spec of cryto.

    _______________________________________________________________________________________

    After 1.5+ years, aiptasia is back.
    I'll let it go into outbreak mode and bring back in the nudi's.

    _______________________________________________________________________________________

    Pretty content with the reef and just trying to enjoy.

    :)

    Holy cow @GoVols , That is the best looking Calcium Reactor set up I have ever seen , so much invested! I love my GLA reactor but I only have the GLA-Pro 1 not the SS series. I plan on upgrading to one if I do stay only with planted tanks though. Just want to say my 2 cents lol . Amazing set up!!

    @GoVols - chiming in with all the praises being sung by everyone; gorgeous tank! I didn't read all 107 pages worth of posts but am looking forward to following you now.

    @Clayton Jessup - have you considered an Alan Le regulator? They are absolutely top notch. If you're interested, here's a thread below that references the Alan Le regulators.

    https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/calcium-reactor-decisions-decisions.568383/

    In closing, since I haven't read the 107 pages of posts, I do not know if @Manose or @dantimdad are following this thread. They're both HUGE Vol fans! (Little stab at one of these guys!)

    @Clayton Jessup @crusso1993

    Guys,
    Thanks for stopping by and the wonderful compliments in your post. It's truly humbling and means more than you know.

    I did mess up the orginal GLA needle valve, but a new GLA block fixed the issue and bought another spare as a backup for down the line.

    Got to admit Marco and GLA is really wonderful to work with.

    Freddie
