Thanks for the compliment,
at the time that this picture was taken, I had a colt coral, and elegance coral, pulsing Xenia, some zoas, a cabbage leather, several different mushrooms, and a purple gorgonian.
Since then I've added some new additions, I now have a bubble coral, a Red Sea fan, yellow gorgonian, blue purple gorgonian, frogspawn coral, a sun coral, yellow toadstool, Green Star polyps, blue-green cup coral.
Are you just getting in the hobby? Or have you been the hobby and just starting to learn about corals.
If so,… The best advice I can give is water quality, water quality, water quality.
I learned the hard way… Trial and error along with some stupidity.
I'll post a new pictures of the aquarium pretty soon.
I'm in the process of setting up my 150 gallon reef.
I've been working three months on getting the aquarium prepared for plumbing, aquascaping, and proper lighting fixture.
This time I'm going to do it right.
If you ever have any questions please feel free to give me a shout anytime. When you get your tank set up Send and picture, I would love to see it I'm sure it's going to look great. Good luck. Talk to you soon.

Thanks, I used my wife's camera.
I bought it for her, but I think I use it more.
It's has one of those fancy color saturation contrast features on it.
Thanks for the compliment.

Sorry for the slow reply and thanks for the compliment. When this system was up and running I used a Fluval 305 cannister filter for just chemical and mechanical filtration. I have a 20 gallon sump (full of LR) and a ten gallon refugium (mangroves) for the biological filtration. I use the Berlin method so I also had a hang on skimmer. Seemed to work good but still had a problem with Nitrates around 15 to 20 ppm. Got pissed off about it and installed a 120 gallon in the wall with 60 gallons below the tank. I am using the same setup for this tank, only difference is I am now running a TF200 skimmer which is doing a great job. Thanks again !! I'll be posting picks of the new tank sometime today.
