Your tank is bananas! What’s the secret with the millies? Warmer temp? Higher salinity?

beautiful!
Thank you very much. Flow is important with Milles along with water chemistry. They also occupy the top part part of the reef for highest PAR. Temperature is in between 78-79 degrees. Salinity right on 35(1.026)

Beautiful Tank! Gonna be a busy day.. What lights are you running ? Not sure I may have missed it
Thank you. Last 18 months, I have been running radion pro gen 5. Before that I have run combo of radion 4 and halides (radium) and before that I have run ATI powermodules.
All of them were equally capable of good growth and coloration. I liked the overall look of the aquarium best with ATI but changing the bulbs in those huge power module fixtures are a back breaking exercise.

radion gen 5s are great but I don’t like the fan noise to be honest. Coral health and growth have been great.

A huge shoutout to @premiumaquatics and their tropic Eden Tonga branches. Absolutely gorgeous pieces, came nicely packed. Zero damage.

amazing shape, super light (unlike Caribsea, reel reef and others). Here are the pieces.

Are those going into the re-aquascape or a new tank?
