    It's enormously impressive. The things it misses (for me) are structured aquascaping and consistency of stocking choices. It's a huge jigsaw puzzle.

    Lovely tank, Water vol is crazy, just the filtration side is like 8000 Ltrs.....

    What I find funny is that he's return water goes directly to the vats, surely he should push this through a skimmer 1st?

    It looks as if he took a piece of reef form the red sea and put glass around it …absolutely stunning.

    It's a nice tank but the behind the scene filter is a bit too american in style who seem to think that everything has to be bigger in order for it to be better. I know you're all going to jump down my throat on this one but look at most of the TOTM's on reef central, you can send a rocket to the moon with the equipment there. This intimidates the little guys out there you thinks he would never be able to run a decent, beautiful tank without ever gizmo in creation. Achieving greatness with very little should be something to aspire to and admired as much as the guy with deep pockets
