That sucks it looks so different, you pay so much money you would hope it looks the same as the pic. I would rather bring my own stuff in than fill some of these vendors pockets.

I ended up trading some corals for an Aquamaxx. Itís one of the best skimmers Iíve ever used. Super legit Would recommend it to anyone over an ATB or BK. Truth

Tank uses so much co2 I have to run a 20lb bottle. Just swapped out my empty for a full one. I get it filled at Airgas. $53 for a 20lb tank.

Great shots! Corals look amazing and healthy. How long have you had the gold torch?

Every single square inch of your tank is amazing.

Which gel filter did you use? Cell phone brand/model?

Question, why did you sell your skimmer? We're you not satisfied with its results? How do you keep that sand so clean

Both beautiful. With or without filter.
The color and the size of colonies is simply amazing.

Could you tell me what model did you get for your tank size ? Normally I would disregard a chinese skimmer but aquamaxx seems to have a sicce pump at the heart of it and am thinking of getting one instead of a BK for my new build and save some money if possible.

Regards,
Abhishek

What's the big green thick stag in the center of the last picture? On the right of the red hyanthicus. As i always say, your colonies are always top knotch for sure. I commend you for not cutting stuff up to make room for more stuff and just letting what you have take over. So nice to see thick branches and nicely formed tables like this. Keep up the good work.
