I think you're missing the concept.
I provide the space
you guys provide the rest
I'll take care of maintenance

I was curious, I didn't see much in the way of power heads for flow. Do you think he has them hidden behind the rock formations, or does the water level go well above the canopy and he has them up there?

Those have to be some of the happiest tangs in the hobby, what was that, 12 feet long!?

That tank is just like the one I have in my living room...... except mine is smaller...... well, much smaller, well much much smaller and not as much stuff in mine, well A LOT less stuff in mine.

That tank is as big as my house:p

I think it would have been cheaper to build a house under the ocean with big look out windows, kind of like that james bond movie .

At the very beginning of the video you can see in the upper left hand corner of the image a return from either a closed loop or from the sump. I would say they have both hidden returns and closed loop returns throughout the tank. Who ever filmed the video did a great job of not getting all the "equipment" in it.

That looks great.
Reminds me of my favorite build thread. 500G (84X48X30)- NOW REAL !

And in case you don't feel like browsing thru a couple hundred pages of the build, here's some recent pics of the tank.

ps...some of that will probably be available at the swap in Jan.

Awesome. Loved the gobies.

How often do you see such florid polyp extension on the SPS corals in your own tanks?
