    Just a few pics of my 6 foot reef tank. This tank has been running for close to a year or so now.

    Cool setup. Haven't seen such a big substrate free tank.

    Really cool man, I like it a lot. So clean, do you have any no3 or po4 issues, what are your readings?

    No no3 or po4 issues. Readings of po4 show minimal values and in terms of nitrates i have the unique problem of having to try and raise them to allow the xenia and other softies to grow. I did have this tank with aragonite but i kept many bare tanks before that. Thats why i decided to revert back. Once you see the amount of detritus that can build up in a tank over a day you realize how much a sand bed which isn't maintained for a long period of time can hold. For me personally its just nice to have piece of mind in knowing theres no hidden decaying objects.
