    my tank has been running for 5 months now and wow im loving this system!!

    my light consists of 2 x orphek atlantik v2 leds... by far the best light units I have ever owned! my sps have great colour and are growing lovely just under a colour setting. I have set them on growth now so will take note of how they grow now.

    I just ordered a dosing unit cause I want to try it. was running a calcium reactor but want to see what everyone is going on about with dosers.

    some pics to follow

    Great tank, if you have a reactor and it seems to be delivering stunning results, I would not bother going to a doser.

    I got the leds from adee... he is the agent for them and if you want quality then give him a call.

    Hi Jarred very nice and healthy looking stock. Congrats on what you achieved with this tank in such a short time. What size is your tank and do the tangs never bother each other?
