    Coral Reeftank, you're an acro genius! Do you ever sell frags?

    Also, TGC amd RMF--what vendors are these?

    I Believe they are:

    RMF = ROCKY MOUNTAIN FRAGS

    Love what you have going on there. What do you believe is the key when it comes to great PE? Are there particular parameter values (ie. alk or calcium at some figure) that you believe coax the polyps out or is it just a stable environment over a very long period of time. Since its been years this tank has existed, I would imagine you have a sense.

    Also, I noticed your moving to T5's on your newer tanks. Any reason for the migration?

    Yes they are.

    TGC= Two guys corals
    RMF= Rocky mountain frags
    I do sell frags, pm if you want something in particular.

    I believe that a stable tank changing water often contributes the most to a tank's health. I don't think you need a specific number to shoot for but keeping it stable is the most important thing.

    I use a nikon 105 mm macro, I change my iso and f stop occasionally to fit what I photograph.
