Brian 300g Starphire A.G.E. Reef
Brian goes by MakoJ on ReefCentral, and is president of MAAST
4 X 400W 10k Reeflux's and the tank has been running since 1/04/2007
Brian is the president of MAAST, and has a beautiful tank. It is lit with four 400w 10,000K Reeflux bulbs in Luminarc III reflectors. The tank has an external overflow. It is built inwall with a fishroom behind it, and all kinds of cool equipment hooked up. My favorite is the laptop mounted on a wall within the fishroom. This tank has been running since Jan 2007, an upgrade from a 150g and a 75g combined.
For some reason, I never took a full tank shot. I guess I was too busy enjoying the corals and pizza.
From the end of the tank.
I loved seeing his Copperband Butterfly.
Female Blue Star Leopard Wrasse
Male Blue Star Leopard Wrasse
Vlamini tang, with streamers showing. This was the largest fish in the tank.
A very pretty all green Frogspawn
Various frags growing out
Acropora sp. - tricolor
A. tortuosa - this was the showpiece of the tank, and there were two large pieces dead center, with blue color bursting out.
These looked like Purple People Eaters to me
Montipora sp. - blue polyps
A. lokani - gorgeous piece
The huge birdsnest colony

That's it for this tank.
