My tank is going strong after a decade and every coral in it came from tiny frags.



You are very right on with that statement. Your system is beautiful. It looks so natural while being pleasing to the eyes with color and their vibrancy

Hi Sever,

Love your tank and the new arch. Where do you buy such an arch? And is that available in the rest of Europe?

Grts. Mark

I have ordered in Aquaforest.eu. They made It in Poland but maybe It's possible to send It to another country in Europe.
