    Default FTS: Ray's Reef- 57G Oceanic Rimless

    Hi All,

    This setup is about a month old with everything new including *100% Dry eco rocks*. Just thought I'd share a FTS I just took...Not the best pic hope its clear enough. Its a 57G Oceanic Rimless measuring 36" x 18" x 21" and I'm running LumenAqua full 36" RGB LEDs with a 2 Bulb T5 for extra par boost. Lighting was set at 22k rating:

    Thanks guys for the compliments, the sps/acros in the middle rock work are still frag size, so hopefully it will grow out more in the next 2-3 months.

    In person I really like the look...Still able to see all the colors *Similiar to Radiums* MH. The LEDs also gives a very nice shimmer effect. Unfortunately my camera isn't the best and show more blue than what I see in person. Also its nice that the LED have adjust K rating...from 3k to Bright Moonlights...Here are some pics of the different options the fixture provides:

    Personally I find this batch of pictures much nicer, they look more like you would see the corals in their natural state. Just a matter of personal preference.

    But either way the tank rocks!!

    Ray is that a Blasto in the last picture? That is one morph I haven't seen, and would be an amazing addition to my ever growing collection!!

    Love that Baby Breath Favia as well!
