Can we get some details on how you run your system? Did your coral start out as frags? What lights are you using? What are you dosing? Your tank looks amazing and it'd be nice to see how you made it this way.

It looks like every one of those corals are wild or maricultured recently imported colonies? What do you mean when you say all corals were moved over from your cube? We're they grown from smaller colonies in your cube for a while? Don't take these questions as offense I am just curious as to why certain af tanks from Poland all have the same look. I have not had any of my questions answered by any of these other tank owners before and their tanks are rarely updated. You have a beautiful tank, that's for sure! Just wondering the specifics on how you choose corals for your tank and how long they have been growing in there.

Wow beautiful update! You certainly stuffed that tank with coral! What do you plan on doing when things grow out? Looks like there are tabling corals placed right next to each other where they have no room. I am still curious as to your thoughts on what I posted above. Looks like your corals are a lot more bold now and not so pastel.
How many fish do you have I only see three? Also what is the blue coral at the top left back of the tank??? Looks like a blue humilus. If it is can you please show a closer pic, that's a very cool coral!

Jaw-drop color but any good suggestion to find the balance among SPS color, light , no3, Po4 and trace elements level. I know each tank is unique but just hope you can share more about your tank operation and maintenance detail.
