    Just had to share these with you. This is a 400cm x 500cm x 155cm display at the Duisburg Zoo Aquarium lit by the Vertex Illumina SR360 series. 9 lamps of various sizes. About 6 weeks old and the corals are growing very well at all depths. Many of the corals were donated by local aquarists. A very cool project we are proud to have taken part in.

    Thanks, Jaques! I think you have more infos than I do! You pumping Nicolas for secrets?

    Yes, it is quite a bit brighter in real life. Although the aquarium people want a bluer effect, the digital camera enhances this even further.

    I agree, this is one cool aquascape they have. The tank is beautiful from all directions.

    Then they got ripped off. At the current prices on bulkreefsupply it works out to about 335,000 at R9,50 to the dollar.

    does anyone know what they did for flow? And how many pumps, as I doubt there is much flow in the front?

    I don't have specifics, but there is ample flow all over. I suspect they will still fine tune this, as the tank needs to settle in and show sand shift patterns. I just re-worked my own reef (corals were way overgrown!) and need to adjust the flow, again. Getting bare patches.
