In my opinion, definitely one of the nicer LPS corals.

Excellent... And good guess that it's a top down photo. The acro is a tri-colored acro.

Awesome looking tank d12. This may be a dumb question but is the front view there making a "bow front" tank look like its actually higher in the middle than on the ends or is that a custom tank?
I also noticed in the old pictures of your sump and ref that your skimmer looks exactly like my jebo skimmer. If so, is that why the 2x4 is sticking out next to the collection cup? I love this skimmer but i have exactly the same problem especially since i use a Nova Extreme T-5 lighting system with legs. I cant raise the light up to clean or do maint. without it falling forward.
I also noticed in the old pics that you had a HUGE carpet leather(?still learning whats what) coral on the mid-right side of the tank. I dont see it in the new tank. What happened to it and how long did it take you to get it that big?
Awesome setup in the new pic bro!

Jinenon, there is no dumb question. That "2X4" is actually an Aquarium top 2x96 PC fixture that I had lighting the two refugiums.

The bow front is not higher in the center. That was the angle of the photo that was taken (Amazing what a little photo creativity will do). A bow front tank would look like a "D" that's been laid down and the glass coming up from it.

Yes you are correct that skimmer is a Jebo Skimmer, Man that thing pumped skimate out. What I did to min was take a drill bit and slowly drill a 5/8 hole on the bottom of the collection cup and put a 5/8 hose down to a milk jug that caught the skimate. That allowed me to go a few extra days without dumping the cup. Also since we drink a good amount of milk/water we always have plenty that I can replace the jugs with.

Unfortunately I had an issue with my tank stand not being ready when it was supposed to be and after I had started the move. This cost me about 90% of my livestock... But that one soft coral was a Toadstool Leather and I had it about 8 months to get it that big, but I had purchased a ready large one. It prob was about 1 to 1.5 year old without and fragging for it to get that size. I'm currently looking for another as my clown loved it so much.

Hey Frag haven't forgot about your frag. Nor you Teeka... I will be getting your frags out in the next couple of days.

As for you lighting setup, have a picture? I may have a suggestion. E-mail or start another tread to get it record of your tank going. As it is a nice way to see your tanks progression.

I love your new tank. I really like the bow front tanks.

I am so sorry to hear about you losing so many corals. I wish I had something to send you. I know it is just sicking to lose all of them.

What I managed to save were the fast growers. So my tank will be up and looking nicely soon. I have a 3-400W MH retro kit coming in.
