    Alexander, beautiful as always! Corals are growing like crazy. I know you cant keep your tank like this for another 2 yrs. Do you plan to trim out or upgrade?

        Thanks a lot.

        Edward indeed they grow as hell. Actually I do not plan a upgrade but who knows

        Mike, it is a standard glass tank. Acrylic tanks over here are not very popular and also much more expensive than a glass tank. I have seen acrylic tanks at MACNA last year and really the look is much more better than a glass tank.

            Edward, the tank was started from the scratch in September 2001. In a power failure I have lost my old tank completely. Still hurts …

                I am stunned every time I see pics of your tank, thanks for sharing

                Do I see Xenia in there? Do you have problems with the xenia growing everywhere?

                  Some xenia umbellata Not really a problem, I love the look. If they grow to near to the corals the get cut quick. Easy to remove.

                    Mirabel I got a handmade stainless steel cutter last year which is really a assistance. Before I have used a edging sears but it became rusty very quick. It is better adequate for rough working in the tank .

                            BEAUTIFUL as always. Alexander, can you post some details on that fan array you use. I presume this helps quite a bit with heat while being very quiet. It looks like some standard shelving rails used to mount the fans and then how did you power 'em? Are they all daisy chained together to a large transformer????
                            THANKS!

                            Mike, acrylic is the way to go IMO, BUT be careful. Especially when you are not used to it, it is VERY easy to scratch and that will annoy you. BB is better b/c it reduces the small particles that get caught in the cleaning magnets and cause most scratches IME.
