Yes, they are placed on the sand.
No pump behind the rocks.

Just want to share,
This picture is my Red Millepora and it was voted as photo of the month (July).
It was taken by one of our club's member.
His name is Mo.

That is an awesome shot; it looks like it's on fire. Your tank is very inspiring, especially for me who's about to setup a SPS only tank for the first time, thanks for sharing.

Chingchai,

I just found this thread and am in awe.

I read in the beginning of this that you dipped your corals but still had trouble with Monti Cap nudi's. What did you do to solve that problem?

Thanks,
Michael

Michael, thank you.
In the past, I use Tropic Marin Pro Coral Cure to dip my corals.
But can't get rid of all the pest. I did lose some of my corals.
Right now, I use CoralRX. And it is much more effective. Strongly recommend.

Yes, I did have problem with AEFW(acro eating flatworm). I take out affected corals and dip them with CoralRX. Also try to daily blow most of my corals with turkey blaster.
However, I can't save all of them. I lost four colonies.
