Holy cow! That tank is huge. A member here, Greenmaster, is building a 320g. Maybe you could chime in on some tips in maintaining and constructing a large tank.

Nice. I like the rockwork. It looks very open. How long have those corals been in there and growing?

I have made a minimalistic scape to allow for future growth of corals.

Most of the corals are grown from frags as I believe they are much more hardier in regards to colouration holding when water quality is less than desirable and obviously promotes preservation of the reef.

The tank is 14 months old, still a baby.
