Guys. All these tanks look AWESOME. My question is, how do you keep so many LPS with the 20-30x tank voloume flow going that some of you have for the SPS in the tanks. Thants a lot of flow!!

you are right--its in the positioning of the power heads and some coral husbandry to boot

eg I had frogspawn that just did not like the turbulant flow from a korilia 4--eventually I moved the frogspawn just a few inches and it was happy again,
I have mushrooms growing in a very calm corner of my tank.

it is doable though--I have about 55x turnover in my 120 now and every one is happy

Here's one of mine.

It's 4ft(L) x 2.5ft(W) x 2ft(H), think in gal, it's about 100gal.
Lighting: 2x MH 150W and 4x T5
Wavebox and a Tunze nano (the smallest)

Thanks! This tank acts as a partition between the living room and the garden. My friend did the scaping for me. It's been great and I have been able to place lots of coral on 3 sides.

I've got a Tunze 6101 on a singlecontroller and my LPS's can not take the flow at full bore. I needed to keep the smaller fuse in it, and turn the little white knob on the connector down to 1/2 in my 70 gallon LPS reef.

You deserve them Chris
What kind of lighting are you using--that looks like a red Lord on the bottom of the subtrate. The colour is much richer then mine

Really good for your 2nd year salt. You got softies, polyps, etc. mastered, few LPS. DO you plan to mess with SPS?

My 240 LPS/mixed reef tank.
The tank is 48" x 48" x 24" and sits in a corner. It has 2 viewable sides.
This is the left side...

And the other view...

And a few of my corals...
Favia...

New little torch...

Alveopora...

Aussie Orange Octo (Frogspawn)...

Hard to get a good picture of this Hammer because it is so deep in the tank...
