Enjoy, they make orchids look dull.
I would do anenomes or tridacna clams
Very colourful and cool! Is it a lot of work with upkeep? I know nothing about keeping tanks.
Amazing colors and forms. Are there any fish so far? I didn't see any, but
reef fish are quite adept at hiding.
Nice, I see 4 fish. Thanks for sharing. I used to keep a small reef tank about the same size. What filtration systems are you using?
Very attractive setup. I find that most orchid growers have other interesting things going on in addition to their flowers. Mike
There are 8 fish: 5 Apogon leptacanthus, 1 Apogon luteus, 1 Nemateleotris helfrichi, and 1 Paracheilinus octotaenia
Filtration is just a skimmer. Water runs through a uv sterilizer before returning from the sump to the tank. Once in a while, I'll toss in a bag of carbon. Rock takes care of the rest.

7 of the 8 fish are at least partially visible in that photo. Can you find them all?
Living art; very nice.
I only saw 4, what I do see is a sea urchin! You don't like your coral?
The sea urchin doesn't bother anything, except the coralline algae.
Looking good. Not easy to keep things stable enough for sps in a smaller tank as I know from experience.
Indeed, Paph culture is child's play by comparison. Having amassed a pile of gadgets a mile wide over the last 15 years doesn't hurt .
Before I rip it apart and replant it, here's how it grew out.
I switched out a few of the cardinals to make way for nicer fish (Centropyge joculator and Liopropoma africanum)
That is beautiful!! Tremendous acheivement!!
Wow, you get this much growth in 7 months? That is amazing! How do you do that? How much PPFD? Do you feed?
