Very nice! I like the convict tangs. Do you have any pictures/more information on the stands construction? It is an interesting concept. Lastly, why do you want your next tank to be acrylic?

Amazing tank!

Hu, if I were you I wouldn´t go acrylic, I´m going from acrylic to ultra white glass by guardian. Acrylic is so hard to clean and scratches with anything, plus you need really thick acrylic to go rimless, and having rims is really bad for simplicity and maintenance.

May I ask why do you want to go acrylic?

first Congratsssssssss
i have a question please
your sump is 40g so how big is your refugium? i assume bk300 would take 1/2of that 40g sump already plus other reactor too,,do you have baffle in the sump too ?
the return section must be very small ? anyway do you have a better shot of the sump lay out ? thanks

Very nice setup! I am amazed at some of the colors in your tank! Beautimus Maximus.

I am sure your next tank will be quite amazing.


It will be very cool to see how the public aquarium turns out. China needs a large public aquarium so that I have yet another reason to come visit your wonderful country!

Congrates, my countryman!

Hi, Haiwei, Congrats!, I am very proud that you are first chinese to be elected to the month of tank.

I have been in hobby about three yesrs, reef for 1 year. I got 300g (72 x 30 x 27) and just set up recently. I am planing to have SPS dominant tank. I know you have some soft corals. People says soft corals might inhibit growth of SPS, would you have any suggestions about this topic?

Again Congrats

Ming Xu

Great job, Welles! You've gotta love what those VHO actinics can do, I think it's a prefect blend of coloration! I'm sure those LED's add a lot of pop as well!
