    Here are some updated pics of my 72g. It has been about 2 weeks now since I have switched over from dosing kalk in my top-off to using a dosing pump.

    Here is a FTS

    Wow on the Sunset taking over the Undata, too cool.

    Thanks!

    I've had the Sunset for about a year or so. You can see in the middle, that's where the original frag is. The Undata a little less then a year.

    The tank looks much larger than 72 gal. Is it the standard 48X18 inch footprint??
    Maybe the tangs are jsut still smaller and makes it decieving, great looking tank though!

    Tank looks great!

    What are the green and red plating corals in the middle of the tank? I'm assuming a monti of some kind. Did you just glue the frag to the side of your rock?

    Thanks everyone!



    Yep, it's the standard 48x18.

    You're correct, it's an Orange monti cap. and a Green w/blue rim monti cap. I just epoxied them to a rock. I like to use epoxy instead of glue. Preference, I guess. A little note on that. The Green monti is "stronger" than the Orange, the green grows over the Orange.
