    In fact that is like saying how far can you jump when you're on the moon?.......Unless you can afford a ticket to get there,there is no way of knowing.....The cost to get to and maintain such systems,would just not be an option for me....:(

    But... we can always dream , can't we ? ;)

    Seriously though : I've seen very small systems ( Nano and Pico reeftanks) which will put a couple of large setups to shame. The cost of maintaining and growing such a system is moderately small, but the drawbacks in terms of cycling times ( pre cycle as well as time between adding livestock/corals) and stability are unfortunately quite high.

    Still... amazing to see what can be done :thumbup:

    Es sieht schön. Aber ich habe es vor in einem anderen Thread. Für mich ist es nicht wie eine natürliche Korallenriff. Ich weiß, die Farben sind lebendig und wirklich hell, aber sicher die grellen Farben müssen nicht verbessern und das Riff nicht übernehmen. Wenn Sie
    "normal" gefärbten Korallen in den Tank und haben ein paar dieser Stücke schön gefärbt, es wird sich sicherlich mehr, als es der Fall ist. Auch ich sage, dass dies ist nur meine Meinung, wie ein natürliches Riff aussehen soll. Es ist fast das gleiche wie das Leben in einem Raum mit 40 der schönsten Mädchen für ein Jahr. Ich kann garantieren Ihnen, dass Sie auch beginnen, bei anderen "normalen" Mädchen zu Fuß vorbei am Fenster?

    Sean, du hast recht . Naturliche Korallenriffe sind zur gleicher zeit bunt und auch grau oder braun. Sowie es mit alles im Leben geht , muss es eine Balanse geben.

    Aber es ist zwar erstaunlich was mann erreichen kann in diesen Hobby im bereich von 2-3 Jahren. Ein kleiner stuck des Ozeans im Wohnzimmer ist doch immer schoen. Soweit es die Korallen farben betrifft : Meiner meinung nach ist dass reinerwegs geschmacks sache. Manche moegen eben sehr stark gefaerbte Korallen.

    40 Maedels in einem Raum ? Dass waere doch ein wunderschoener Traum , oder ? :drool5:

    Sorry Dallas,

    Very rude of me indeed.

    Sean and myself were just debating that although the setup looks extremely colourful , it does not neccessarily resemble a natural reef in his opinion. One should not forget that a natural reef has both colourful as well as gray/brown undertones. Balance should exist in order to resemble a natural reef. The aspect of how many brightly coloured corals should be present in a reef aquaria is purely a matter of taste.

    I agree with Sean in this regard , but it is still quite amazing to see what can be achieved in this hobby within a timeframe of 2-3 years.

    BTW: This guy has written some very interesting articles , especially on the aspect of coral colouration (why do corals have certain colours ? ). Unfortunately all in German , but if you're interested I can translate . Alternatively do a check on RC . This guy has written a few articles for them recently.
