Hey guys! I'm in BC and I've been reef keeping for about 2 years now. I started out doing freshwater for about 9 years before finally moving to saltwater. Now I have my 33gal SPS dominated reef and a 4gal freshwater planted shrimp tank. Pictured is my reef.

:P Thanks everyone! Sure, I can tell you more about my set up here. For lighting I have two Kessil A350 Tuna Blue LEDs. A simple Eshops Overflow box, return pump is a MagDrive 5, and of cotse I have my sump which adds about an extra 10gals of water to the system with a Bubble Magus 3.5 skimmer. About 40lbs of rock all together in the system. I didn't want to crowd too much rock in the display, like previously mentioned I wanted it to look bigger than it actually is, which apparently what I'm doing is working lol Don't have a lot of fish, 2 red firefish, 2 Occ. Clownfish and a spotted mandarin that I have had for a few months now eating anything and everything, even starting to try pellets now. Mostly SPS, some really nice Acro frags, so I keep my Cal, Alk, Mag right where it needs to be and I keep it quite stable. RO/DI water of corse. Feed once a day, mainly pellets, but of corse feed rinsed frozen once or twice a week maybe. I'll have to take some macro shots of a few of my Acro for u guys. Overall I don't have a very elabrate set up to be honest. I dose, test etc all manually. No auto top off or anything like that. Tank is about 2 years old now. Dunno what else to say.. I try not to screw around with too much, I try and leave things be, I'm pretty content with how things r in the tank other than I think there needs to be a little more color on the bottom right of the tank :P I'm thinking of maybe getting another Clam or something.

Welcome to Canreef. I have to agree I thought the tanks was bigger than 33Gal. Looks good.
