    What PAR do you target for your acros? Or water surface if that's easier?

    It really depends on the type of Acro. Some receive close to 300 while other get as little as 125 or thereabouts.

    The surface of the 900 gets about 325 par or so.

    2 questions... 1. Are these par values taken with the t5's on or off?
    And 2. How many hours a day are the t5's on?

    Nice! Is there a little bit of sand on the bottom or is the white part under the glass?

    The Blueberry Fields vs Bonsai are two different acro species. We will get photos as well to see.

    Stopped in to see this tank today and it's a whole different animal in person. It's really amazing how pictures on the internet can make things look smaller but this tank is immense! The sister tank in the entrance area is much smaller but probably more impressive because of the more mature coral colonies.

    First time in the shop and really impressed with the set up. Will be back for sure (when I actually have a tank running)... :p

    They may look similar but they are different species. We will work on getting a colony photo.
