Great Tank Hugo!
I have one question, How did you keep the pipefishes with the triggers in the same tank? Have your trigger ever caused any trouble?

I'm simply stunned by the beauty of the corals in your tank. One of the finest examples I've seen of what a dedicated reefer can achieve.

Hugo,

De verdad te felicito por el tesón, la perseverancia que en estos escasos 5 años le has puesto para tener tan bello tanque, relamente no hay palabras para describirlo...

Mis cinceras Felicitaciones...

Richard !

Hey Bret. Yes, Hugo has some Anthias in there. I didn't list them because I didn't have the species name and I didn't have a picture to ID them.

Hugo! Amazing! Simply Amazing!

Where do you get most of your corals from? I have seen many of them online or in stores but you have so many color variations and morphs that I have never seen before.


Keep up the excellent work!

Wow!! Awesome.......stunning. What a goal for other reefers to shoot for. Superb photography also. Of the two brands of 20k bulbs you use, which do you prefer?

Congratulations
