    This is my tank now that I dont have a display tank anymore.

    Equipment:

    Lighting: 1 x Kessil A350w and 1 x Kessil A360w
    Skimmer: Bubble magus
    Flow: 1 x MP10 1 x wp10 1 x wp25 1 x sun sun....

    This is really a propogation and storage tank until I get the money and space to run a decent display tank again.

    Focus is on LPS corals as Ive really taken a major liking to them recently.


    Thought I would share some pics of the tank thus far and some of the corals

    Looking great Archie :thumbup:

    Wouldn't mind a frag tank like yours one day... Your corals seem to be growing like weed in there!
