    Tank dimensions:
    1.5m × 650mm × 650mm
    Water volume 650 litres including sump.

    Been running for 4 month but started zeovit 2months ago And already see improvement on colour of sps.

    Still on basic 4 haven't used any other zeo products besides seachem reef builder, advantage calcium and magnesium to buffer water params. :thumbup:

    Only livestock currently in tank are my shoal of yellow coris wrasse of 4 and some cleaner, fire and harlequin shrimp and tons of turbo snails, brittle stars and a few hermit crabs.

    All other fish are in my holding tank and will be added in sequence when I have decided and sourced all on my wish list.

    Pictures will follow

    Thanks @tekkengal, they getting there slowly
    id say in a month or 2, I should be seeing some insane colour with zeovit.

    My lights are currently running on 60% slowly increasing it to get my sps use to led. So not getting much growth yet.

    my opinion

    For what its worth.............this is by far the cleanest neatest,popping coloured vertical slice of ocean I've had the torture of coming into contact with.......the problem with this tank is the fact that my reef sps processor cannot compute at speeds needed to full appreciate this tank...its like my eyes are still standard definition and this reef is full 1080 p....I'm still in VHS and this reef is 3d led.......all I can say is slam at ayob and mahshallah.......respect bra.......you my tank of the year for sure,,tank of the month don't do your tank justice,,,,,,,,,,,,,cost I'm tank of the month and you way way way way way better. Lol
