Stunning and an inspiration! I love it.

One question - do you run your UV all the time or only when you need it?

Thanks Robert for answering , the fox flame looks like you have it in a high light area would you have any idea what sort of par that might be.The Walt Disney looks amazing , some of them i have seen do not look that special but yours makes it look worth every cent they cost.

Very nice tank and what I am aiming for in my 300DD which has been up for a year. I have been running the ecotech leds but am backfitting T5s now. Hopefully mine will turn out as beautiful as yours!

That is some serious light , you must be around 250 or so even at the bottom.

WOW! With 3 reboots since 2013, Does that mean it takes about 2 years for you to grow everything out to the point where it needs to be rebooted?

Yeah, acros grows fairly fast, this is about little over a year apart.

Great looking tank Rob! Seeing your 60in ATI fixture over that tank gives me hope. I've got a 225g that's also 72 long and had been wondering how well that fixture would do over it. Keep up the great work!

What exactly do you mean reboot? Not starting over entirely right? Also, why do you test for po4 but not nitrates?
Just redoing the aqua scape and trimmed down the colonies. Just don't have a nitrate test.

Spectacular... I've been following. Congrats on the feature.

Do you have any zoanthids? Or any other corals that your angels like a taste for? Or do the 3 or 4 feedings a day keep them from picking?

Really amazing tank! I was surprised to see you keep your alk at 7. Can you talk about why? Seems like most people run closer to the 9 range IME.

Absolutely incredible! If this doesn't inspire you, nothing will! I couldn't agree with your statement more about a shift in the hobby towards high end frag tanks, while they are nice too, seeing grown out colonies is so much more.
