Those SPS is awesome and your tank is clean sanababit. I want to do a mini version of that first picture . What happen to the 2nd picture, did you trim it down? Still look awesome and clean.

Well i started to get frags on dec 2007, so making calculations i believe 2 years 8 months 2 weeks 3 days 13 hours, jejej, no actually they are about 2 and a half year old colonies, no zeo, no probidio, no extra feeding, just a calcium reactor with both calcium media and mag media, carbon, phosguard, algae scrubber, that is it, in the first year maybe a bottle of iodine (but when i used it i noticed my yellow corals turning green so i stopped), now there back to yellow, maybe some brightwell products, but i did not notice any difference so i stopped, OH and at first i started doing my weekly water changes which turned to monthly and then yearly, so maybe a water change a year or so later on, and always t5ho

Sana

PS, the reason the colonies got that big is, i live in tijuana mexico, there's like 3 people besides me that have tanks and i have given them frags from the corals i had, SOOOOOO, i did not have anyone else to give them too, i used to cut them and throw them into the sump, but i said what a waste, so i decided to take them to the states but when i crossed the border i almost went to jail because homeland security had an agricultural department which says that any marine wildlife is banned from coming accross without a cities permit so i got sent back to tijuana, and i cant send any into southern mexico because of the same problem (no permit), tijuana is a border city and everything that goes south into mexico has to go thru customs and customs asks me for cities paperwork so i am screwed, since i cant give them, sell them, exchange them, then i just let them grow out.......

My first tank.
Display tank: Standard 55 Gallon
Sump: 20g
Tank Age: Lasted about 6 months till I upgraded
Flow: (2) Koralia 2's
Lighting: (2) 175w 15k Iwasaki's and (2) 48" VHO Super Actinic
Filtration: Vertex In-80 Cheato 100+lbs LR and DSB



After I added a few corals:


20k XM's


My current tank, doing it right this time.
Display tank: 60x18x20 scratched up acrylic
Sump: 40g
Tank Age: 7 months old
Flow: (2) Koralia 2's
Lighting: (2) 250w 20k Radium's and (2) 48" VHO Super Actinic (4) 48" T5 (3) B+ (1) ABS
Filtration: Avast CS1 Cone Skimmer with Sicce PSK-2500 150+lbs LR and BRS Biopellets









Replacing this tank with a scratch free glass tank I dont like acrylic. I had a gorilla crab problem so took out a lot of the live rock and going to re-aquascape. Going with a black background because the blue annoys me. Ill post new picks when I'm done. I've since bought a few more frags I think it'll look beautifil when it all grows in.
