A tank worthy of the spot light, congrats Roy!

Is the bottom completely covered in coralline. I remember the Cardinals, they had that awesome school effect in such a large tank. I am surprised you're not keeping more Tridacna. Would love to see this tank in person.

Hi Roy, congratulation. Very nice tank, interesting size and great work. I like seeing large SPS colonies too!

That's fantastic. Well done. How large were your colonies when you first started? They look huge now. Is this all growth that occurred in the tank?
Just about all of them started as 1-2" frags and grew out over the last couple years. All the growth did happen in this system. Thank you
