    Hello, my name is Rickie and I thought it is time to share my reef setup with you. I know Sean is posting under his name, but I am waiting for my Adsl to be installed. Some tank photos to follow. In time I will upload the pics of the sump etc, as I know you guys are pic addicts::thumbup:;)

    And last but not least, the full tank shot. It was taken early in the morning, so most of the coral was still opening. Will take some afternoon shots as well as the sump pics this coming week:

    From my side I can say that I've never seen red ears open as big as the ones Rickie has in his tank. The system is running for close to 02 years now and is unbelievably healthy. The giant ear on the eggcrate is definately the main attraction. It is bigger than a plate and when opened fully, it is as flat as a plate too, sort of "floating" in the water column.

    Well done on a excellent, clean system Rickie. As soon as you are online, we can ask the mods to move these posts under your own name

    Btw, thank you for allowing me the privilage to photograph your system. For once I can also say that these pics definately does not do your tank justice. Ask anyone who have seen this tank before- really nice
