    Ready for some colony pics these have been in my system for awhile. Pics were taken under kessil AP700 whites at 50% blue at 40% with my iPhone so quality not the greatest. Colonies where placed on top of a piece of black acrylic

    Couple of questions if you don't mind. Are these tanks in your home? Where do you keep all the live rock?

    Don't mind at all, yes all the tanks are in my home. Don't have much live rock in the system just what's in the display and refugium. Some small pieces in the frag tanks. I run mostly marine pure in replace of live rock.
