Congrats Mike, you have came along ways from when I first saw your tank. Some one told me I have started a trend of making onto the totm and shutting down...but reefing is an addiction, you never really quit...just need a Short break. I realize on my recent build that I enjoy the setup as much as adding new corals to the collection. This hobby is mysterous in ways that it will always wonder back into your life in one form or another. I will be looking forward for your next build buddy and I know it will be even more interesting and exciting. Keep up the great work buddy and I will see you soon once my new tank is populated with new sps frags! :mrgreen:

Pretty much me when I saw your tank: :jaw:

Guys, if you're not into SPS, this tank will change your mind about coral sticks.

Congrats on all the success Mike! You deserve it.

And how could I end without reposting this picture:

That's one beautiful tank Mike, congratulations!.

P.S. what do you mean ?

"You can buy all kinds of magic potions and concoctions, but I found the most important ingredient is an adequate amount of fish poop. To be honest, fish poop is gold."

Thank you!

There are many variables to colorful acros but regarding fish poop I find its most important and least expensive food source. Don't get me wrong I have pretty much all the blue magic bottles. I like to experiment which keeps in excited in this hobby. But as a basic, poop is first for me than on top of that you can experiment with supplements to tweak the colors. Hope that makes sense without going into too much detail lol

Hi Mike correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking that the fish poop would be an excellent source of food for the corals?

As Mike said fish poop is number one for colour in a lower nutrient system I'm currently having issues with phosphate being a bit low 0.02 thinking of a few more fish I had best colour at .06.
