Just for you to see my humble tank and explain the routines I follow. Sadly in Spain we haven't got the opportunity to buy WD nor jawbreaker colonies...So don't expect to see hyper awesome colours. :(

It is an 80x80x55cm 10mm tank (85gallon aprox)

Illumination: 2 radeon g4 30wpro

Skimmer: Vertex Omega 180

Flow: 2 tunze 6095 + Vectra M1

Dosers with complete Fauna Marin Balling

Feeding: Fish: Mysys + DKI pellets
Corals: Reef Roids + Polyp Booster + EasyBooster

Animals: Japonicus, black ocelaris, kaudermi , Iridis , Marginatus , Hexataenia , Bipartitus, Aurora goby, 2 nocturna, pistol shrimp, 3 wundermani shrimp

Corals: Mixed reef mainly dominated SPS tank

The tank has been running 5 years now, but only the last two years it's been looked after properly.

Try to mantain low detectable levels of nitrate (almost imposible to raise it m0re than 1) and phosphates (0'01/0'1)


Suffered 8 months of STN and had lots of losses. Can't confirm it was due to low feeding, but almost sure it was the cause. Still have some colonies affected but almost none is in risk.

Incredible reef. Thanks for all three angles of the full tank shot (FTS), but you already know it is necessary. Just an incredible aquascape and the photography skills to show it off.
