Hello guys.

My name is Junio and I am from Brazil.
I have recently signed to this forum and for the first days I have being only learning from you guys.
So, now is time to show you my third aquarium.
It is a 2.2x0.5x0.45m starfire glass. I am a shallow reef addict, as you can notice. Sorry for the metric, but we don't use imperials.
Hope you enjoy it.
And please, feel free to comment and help me improve my reef!
Best regards!

First off a BIG WELCOME to R2R, secondly what an absolute beauty of a Reeftank and incredible selection of Fish and Coral.

Cheers, Todd

Thank you for the welcome and the kind replies!
It's not easy to be a reefer here in Brazil because prices are really, really high.
And we don't have access to all the beauties we can see abroad.

Thank you efigue02, c_healy and mike!

Love the C. ornatissimus. It pleases me a lot when I find one during scuba diving.
