    This system has been up for about a year but I thought I would share.

    Its a 460 gallon(96" x 42" x26") Miracles tank with starfire front and back. 3/4" glass all around with 4 1/2" Eurobracing.

    I had it built in place and I was even able to help!

    Wow the tank looks amazing and nice to see that you have started to add the SPS coral to the tank and if you do not have the Strawberry Shortcake Acro it is a must have and this is a must have to this thing is off the hook and sorry for the poor looking picture it sites way back in the tank and is hard to take a picture of it and it has 5 colors in it and is hard to see in the picture.

    This tank is most epic. I love all the goniopora! The lighting makes this tank the absolute boss. AMAZING!

    Very nice. I love the aquascaping it unique and very open.

    How long have you had your gonipora? I know that they are very mixed results for long term survival. I noticed you use a course substrate or more course than usual at least. I've noticed that tanks with more course substrates tend to have higher Pod populations do you think that might have contributed to your success with them?
