Full tank shot

I was able to finally get rid of the glare. A full tank shot I can finally be proud of.

Best picture I've seen of this tank yet! I like the play pen in front. My sons play pen is right in front of my 125, he loves looking at the fish... though my tank is nothing compared to yours

Those corals started out in a 55 gallon for 7 yrs. The last 6 yrs they have been in the 125. Looks like I`ll have to upgrade soon. Thanks everyone.

Patience is the key. That tank between the 7 yrs in the 55 and the 6yrs in the 125 is 13 yrs old. Looked kind of empty in the beginning but has filled in since. Frequent PWC`s, RO/DI water, I dont target feed my corals (They get all they need from the lighting and water column) and as I said patience.

Im running MH hqi, its a dome shaped fixture that is hanging over my tank from ceiling. The ballast is down in my stand. If that makes sense.

I have 4 160 watt VHO bulbs. They have internal reflectors in them and the dome reflects 99% of the light into the tank. Sorry I took so long answering.
