Brandon, the tank lookss awesome.
I even love the way the pumps have pushed the sand back.
Under that lighting your scape looks like it’s reaching out over a super deep expanse of ocean.
Beautiful.

Thanks in advance

Sure.

Yes.


I feed 16 times a day and run a large skimmer and a refugium. I sometimes employ an automatic water change when I get time to make water. High par and lots of flow.
