Congrats Morten - outstanding tank and beautiful fish!

The Acanthurus japonicus (Powder Brown) looks more like a Acanthurus leucosternon (Powder Blue)? That Gem Tang is amazing! Any issues with the Regal angel nipping on the SPS?

Thanks NexDog.
If you read the article and look at www.coralreef.no in my photogallery you will understand A.japonicus VS P.B.T.

No, I have not any problem with nipping on SPS from my Regals.

Thanks usnao95.
No, it's not a optical affect. I use a Canon 20D with 18-55mm lense to take top/down pictures.


Thanks everybody.

In the picture of the sump, what is the function of the blue filter housing in the middle of your sump with the green tubing going into it? Kalk?

That's beautiful. What are the dimensions of your display tank? Does your flame angel nip your SPS and clam mantels? How about the regals? When did you introduce the flames and regals?

Is your tank really only a 90g? It looks so much larger.

Amazing! Very beautiful indeed. Unique shape too.

Beautiful tank! Your corals have such amazing corals. Looking at the first pic in the write-up, it's really hard to believe that your display is only 90 gallons.
