Very nice reef Bob. It's so relaxing to watch that video. I also liked your choice of reef friendly tank mates. How many gallons is that tank...are you running a sump? What kind of lighting do you have? Btw, I'm sure the video doesn't do the tank justice.

thx guys..
As for the T5's I have 2X Arcadia Marine White T5 39 watts, 9.500 K... I took white ones cause T-8's that I have integrated in Giesemann lamp are blue.I came to believe that in Germany (and Japan->which is too expensive) they make best reef equipment so I try to follow that idea.

I removed 50kg of LR (it was 120 inside) and placed newly imported 15 kg of Fiji stuff.. That way I hope to enrich biodiversity and so.... besides LR now I placed two bags of live sand on the bottom for the same reason and to finally get some sand organisms that i couldn't have in BB tank.

Now is more swimming space, places to hang corals too and white sand gives nice light reflection and clams look fantastic in it. I tried to arrange aquascape more lagoon style so it gets deep touch.. My fishes like that big time, and I think it looks more natural that way.. Some difficult corals like Catalaphyllia jardinei didn't survive the stress of sudden changes but I was counting about possible mortalities risk...
