    nice - what filtration are you using?

    Word of caution - that coarse coral substrate is going to give you headaches! it's catching all the gunk and it will increase your nitrates uncontrolably!

    Otherwise love the regal and tang

    I like the 800mm width/depth of your first tank. It really gives so much more space for the reef.

    Just not sure about the "frag" shelving setup in the display tank, makes it look quite untidy .

    What is the algae looking stuff that is "growing" out the plastic boxes ?

    Nice deep tank to look into. (like front to back).

    What is on the shelves on the right?
    On which tank did you add the Cheato I gaved you? Or are both tanks running on same sump?

    Thanx Riaan and Warr ! We all started with the normal width/depth tanks but later on if you have the space it's nice to have the width/depth to look into the tank ! Like Warr said - it give's much more space and even the fishies love it ! :yeahdude:
    Riaan , the Cheato went into both tanks ! Every tank have it's own sumps ! ;)
