    this is the show tank at my lfs in denver, it is actually the store i get the majority of my livestock and after a quick google search it turns out they have the largest hammer coral in captivity in their store, in this tank. its an awesome tank and i have always loved hammer coral. it makes an amazing showpiece along with several tangs in this large aquarium. not sure of the size but probably over 150 gallons. heres a link on more info.

    not totally sure on other specs i know he has mp60's in the tank. the tank now has a school of cardinals as well as some favias on the sandbed. but sadly the hammer was recently fragged apart into 20 large heads to save room, this past month or so. quite sad to see it go.

    lighting is 400 watt halides
    filtration is a custom built sump/fuge that is around 50 gallons.
    not many fish in the tank when the pic was taken aside from a large tang and a few small cardinals.

    a beautiful rimless tank that combines shore dwelling species such as crabs with the reef aquarium. also very unique rock structure resembling a volcano allows for crabs and such to surface when needed. overall a truly beautiful marine tank.
