    So it's September already, time for another video update! To catch up: I have replaced the entire right side of the reef by two open Reef Pillars, that I have connected to each other (with a huge Turbinaria) and the left part (with a RockZolid reef branch). The flow seems much better overall with the new setup, and the fish are happy too!

    Wow...gorgeous tank!

    When did you switch to the Aurora? Are you still running the same bulbs?

    Hmm I used the Matrixx for about 2 months but couldn't get used to the "still" image it creates. I switched to the Aurora in March/April and I really enjoy it still, combining the shinyness of the marine/royal blue LED's and the relatively white (2x ATI Coral Plus and 2x Giesemann Aquablue Coral) T5's.

    Here's some bonus shots!
