STAG HORN DOMINATE REEF

ABC Corals collection

Well a quick history about my self. My name is Anthony and I'm from Irvine Ca. My addiction to reef keeping started since I was 13 and now I'm 53. We escape Vietnam and stay on this beautiful tropical island in Malaysia and that's when I got to see the beauty of natural reef for the first time. I have kept saltwater tank since 1983 until now and my main interest is staghorn acropora. The image of Anthias and damsels darting in and out from the staghorn is what I'm trying to create for my reef tank.
Let's me introduce my system, it has been running for 2 years and some of you might follow my build thread progress. The main display is 8'x3'x2' acrylic. The sump is 54"x30"x16". Small frag tank 28"x28"x16" and big frag tank 60"x30"X12". Main tank is running by halide. Small frag tank is LED and big frag tank is T5. I have all 3 different light system so I can compare the color change in corals in different light source and the results is very intrigued.
My main method for my system is zeovit. It has been 2 years and the results is impressive to me. Well too much talking let's see some pictures
