Get detailed but only use one sentence! How's the aquascape, what fish are swimming in it, how do the corals grow and flow? Use your imagination and tell us what a "perfect tank" looks like to you!

it is definitely getting there. corals are finally taking off (some stragglers due to a recent ALK swing), but nonetheless it is progressing. "perfect" end game for me would be to have it fully automated with controllers and a doing system to be completely hands off (with the exception of the occasional fragging)

One with many different colours, behaviours and even looks natural (My reefs aren’t fully there yet).
