When I had freshwater tanks I usually did a style called "palaudarium" coz I liked the look of a water surface/air environment. The rockwork comes out of the water because I wanted to try that look out in a reef tank.

in reefs it's difficult to get that same feel, so I modeled that style on a reef atoll. So that means a tiny section of exposed coral that sticks out of the water, with a expansive, colourful and vibrant reefscene underneath. I might even super glue a lego man at the top of the exposed rock

i'll get pics of the sump soon....I need to post more coral pics!

i'm very low tech...my sump is basic: powerful skimmer, refugium, chaeto, carbon/GFO reactor, that's it...no dosers, controllers and wi-fi and all that hollywood stuff

i've got two... one is a fire orange colour and beautiful! cherry picked from AK from a Philippines shipment. I've had it over 7 years! (and it has never grown a baby)


more photos

Foxface next to my sinularia


photosynthetic gorg from AK....this thing is soooo frilly, the polyps are huge


Green Tree coral....this colony is probably 9 years old about now. It has literally doubled in size in just about 4 months in this tank


Foxface next to my duncans


battle-ready green torch from Canada Corals ..insane green on this one

Looks great! I'd love to see a FTS that shows the top of the Mountain.

You need a HD web cam pointed at this and a link so I can watch this tank for a few hours a day.

if you can't find any, i've got two diff species. I can chop you a branch of either, no probs...just gotta mount it yourself.


MOAR PICS

sinularia with the strangest branching i've seen...looks like Sideshow Bob. Had to use a flash to get this as it's under a ledge


this is my nursery area, so to speak. I'm growing out some nice branching softies - i've got frags of two different varieties of capnella imbricata, a peachy/red klyxum (cauliflower colt) and that oddball Japanese softie I can't quite ID properly.


my oldest clown, Beyoncé....had her about 7 years....she was and still is an angry, bossy fish lol


better shot of that bowerbanki!

Keep 'em coming. I may just take you up on the gorge offer after the new year if I can't find one. Your softies are really beautiful as well.
