    Default Austin - Dallis & Marcus' 600g reef

    Dallis & Marcus' 600g tank

    Marcus is GMFett on ReefCentral.com

    Two reefers share this tank, and are both going to college studying to be lawyers. Dividing the costs between themselves, they've created a beautiful piece of the ocean. The tank is lit with three 400w 12,000K Reeflux bulbs in Luminarc III reflectors. Two Tunze Waveboxe and motion, while several Stream pumps create in-tank flow. The tank is acrylic, with several cross braces, and the huge canopy is secured to the ceiling, barely floating above
    the top of the tank. All kinds of Deltec gear keep the water clean, and a closed loop helps move all the water around as well.

    Here are a few full tank shots, since it can be viewed from 3 sides.

    Acropora humilis (perhaps)
    dallis humilis - Austin - Dallis & Marcus' 600g reef

    Speaking of acropora, I want to dwell on this next Acropora yongei, aka Bali Green Slimer. t is such a huge stunning and beautiful piece. FYI, if Marcus and Dallis had to break down this tank, they would need a large trashcan to hold this coral as one piece. Yes, it is THAT big! Try looking around the images for something to compare for a sense of scale.

    Yes, they are in a house near the college campus, and there are 4 people in the house. Two are the hobbyists, while the other two just get to enjoy it without any hard work.
