    coral

    couple zoas
    couple shrooms
    cushion
    GSP 2 types

    Nice setup! Is this a Boyu MT-50?

    Reason I am asking is because I have just started my marine journey with one of these about 2 weeks ago.

    Would you mind helping me out with a few questions regarding this specific tank please.

    Were you running the stock lights? Asking because it looks as if your corals were thriving.
    How did you setup your 3 compartments for filtration?
    Did you use the stock pump that it came with?

    Thanks in advance

    Cheers
