By unanimous decision, Congratulations are extended to peregrinus
for his "experimental tank".
Comments from the Judges -
Reef_Angel - "Congratulations, I had a hard time choosing between tanks, but I know I made the right decision. I have found many similarities between some of my favorite hobbies. One being Captive Reefing and the other being perennial gardening. When I looked at you tank, it reminded me so much of the work, thought & design that we as gardeners put into our gardens, and later our flower arrangements and other projects we put together. You have a natural flare for making your corals look like a beautiful garden, and IMO it is very impressive. The artistic and creative mind is a terrible thing to waste, so keep creating. Your work is wonderful!"
ReptoReef - "Not only is he using bulbs from a local hardware store, but also is using tap water for his top off(I believe he is also absent of a skimmer). I have had the opportunity to talk to him in person and even have a few of his soft corals in my own system (very healthy at arrival and now, too). Hopefully he can take a few minutes to elaborate on the functions and details of his system to give us all a better understanding of what his tank is truly about... in his own words. Great job!!!"
Dakar - "An awe inspiring reef accomplished with some rather untraditional methods, many of which are generally frowned upon by others. For an experiment, he has managed to obtain results many of us are still striving to reach. A great balance of colors in coral and macros, provide just the right contrast to make everything from the smallest frag to the largest colony stand out to be recognized. A pleasure to see in pictures, I can only imagine it's appearance in person."
Truly worthy of the term Captive Reefing
