    Attention to details is what can make the difference between a nice reef tank, and a great reef tank. In this exquisite example of a reef display by Masanao Shibuya, no detail has been left to chance to create a reef tank that is world class by any standard.

    The coral growth and coloration is absolutely off the chart and we just can’t get over how dynamic the range of color rendition is across so many pigments in so many of Shibuya-san’s corals. Part of the way that this is achieved is by using the best of the best lighting system possible, with this reef being primarily lit with T5 and then supplemented with no fewer than 5 LeDio LED spotlights.

    The video might be brief but we do have the full translation of all the equipment used on this tank. We hope to see more of this reef aquarium system in the future because if any display is deserving of more exposure, this SPS Reef by Masanao Shibuya is definitely one of them.

    Very nice tank:

    He puts in a lot of effort to clean the sand bed and do a daily water change of 11 to 22l a day. I wonder if there is anyone on the forum that does the same?

    Although mind you, I've often thought of setting up a doser to dose something like 1 litre of freshly mixed water every day, would need two dosers though, first one to remove 1 litre of water, then 2nd one kicks in and doses 1 liter of fresh salt water. Surely if you can adjust that to meet your ca, alk etc. consumption then it would be better than dosing different additives, maybe cheaper? Don't know, just a thought. Probably a stupid one though. :p

    I thought of this and was told that my doser would not last the year :p
    And I am too lazy to do the water changes manually :lol:
