ABOSLUTLEY no offence to all of the previous TOTM and the current one but I was wondering why they are all SPS dominate tanks. There are many LPS/Softy tanks out there that are pretty sweet as well. And no I am not talking about mine because as far as it being an 8' tank it is really nothing special.

Just a question.....

Amazing system and big props to you DEZ you have a nack for the SPS wish I had the same luck.

Thanks for all of the compliments everyone. And a high five back Laurier :). I am truly humbled by all of the other amazing reefs that I have seen in captivity. It is because of those reefs that I have been inspired. Thanks all again.

+1, Dez. When I grow up, I want to be just like you (and be able to grow a tank full of sps just like you!):biggrin:
Totally blew me away when I saw the tank in person. Pictures don't do it justice.

Great write-up man. Little bit of everything in there that was a fun read. Amazingly beautiful tank and like a few other TOTMs I've had to honour to see in person the pictures (no matter how nice) NEVER do them justice. Congrats!

Great looking tank Dez. It was nice to have all of your information laid out on one page. I've tried reading through some of your tank journal but its just so long!

Ha ha, I know. Tank journals always have mixed in rabbit trails and Brett's humour and other conversations that tend to make them long reads. I've wasted so much time at work reading other peoples journals but I just wanted all the details so some reads were 3 days long with one hour sessions here and there (cough cough.....Snappy's). Thanks again for the complements.

The Goldflake angel? He's in there. I did the write up beginning of Nov, before I got your old goldflake. He is doing well. Not picking on any coral and no one is fighting. I've got quite the fish load hey ;) ?

Oh i missed that part. I was really relieved too see him go to a good home we were very upset to get rid of him but he had a taste for clams in our tank. I had gotten bobs tusk fish for a while and i think that set the tank over the bio load limit. Phosphates were on the way up slowly. There is a pretty find line between 0 and starting to rise. You must be on the verge of that limit.

I really like him. He's the largest fish in our aquarium now. I have about 340 gallons of water volume so that's how I think I can get away with my fish load. Good for the corals I think. Thanks for the goldflake Wes ;)

Thanks Greg. Your tank was one of the main aquariums encouraging me to go SPS dominant.
