I thought some of you guys and girls back home might like to see how the tank tours of Hong Kong are going and how they do things over here. (If you like what you see let me know and I’ll update here for every tank tour I get to)

Second tank tour visit today. And boy do I have some eye candy for you.


As I eluded to in the previous post, this one was going to be rather special and I was not disappointed in the least. Even if the owner did clean the glass 10 min before our arrival lol.


Little background then before we see the rainbow. This tank was upgraded about a year ago, so rather new. The corals are from a previous tank. But as you’ll see, the owner has no trouble growing and fragging them. To the point he has to decide which ones to sacrifice (give away) to creat more space for the new frags. (The problems some of us have eh)


He likes to keep things simple he says. And on that note is dosing Alk/Ca with a dosing pump. And believe it or not nothing els. At all.


Lights are Radions, and interestingly he is running all three at various settings. He likes to experiment and has notice a fairly large range of coloration in his corals under each light. The best colours in this tank are a result of 100%W/B with 70% UV.



The acrylic cover (love covers or hate them) were tailored locally and I thought I’d share these as I found the fixing design to be rather cool and simple. Maybe they could give others ideas. These could even be made adjustable with a little thought.

I even left with a few magnets the reefer had made up, Bonus.

Right, without further a do, here are a few of the photos I took, choosing which ones to share was a task I tell you .


Hope you enjoy.

***CORRECTION***.
Lighting at which he received the best colorations was not as described in original post.

Should read
100% Violet
100% RED
100% Blue
70% UV.
5% White

Sorry guys. In my excitement to post lol.
