Stan, beautiful tank still, well that is an understatement, but it was 2 years ago since I have seen it personally, and it is truly amazing! I remember standing near the right, just lost in the moment, then seeing a blue ray come out (do you still have it?) and I think I had a tear, because nature is trully recreated with your work!

Congrats!

Yes i am also interested in how many Kilowatt hours your system uses per month, i have been pondering a large setup for a while now, but have no idea what the running power cost would be on one of these guys. Absolutely inspirational and beautiful tank. That skimmer is on some major steroids.

When I think of what type of tank I'd like to keep when I settle down in the house of my dreams... That's the tank that pops into my mind. It's so gorgeous and the ratio of coral types works perfectly. I've never even seen Snowcap Clownfish! That's incredible!

Is that the same dark hybrid looking tang that was for sale at Live Aquaria for a month or so a while back? And I also see that big red carpet. Was that the one for $800? There was a post on RC about it and maybe this is where it went. Just curious if you are a LA client.

Great tank, very nice. What are you using for circulation? I see a sea swirl with penductor that is the same setup I have on my tank, scaled down of course, is this all you are using, Thanks And you've done a great job.

Stan,

Could you speak more about the heat exchanger you are using? Do you have any recommendations as far as model's or what to look for? Did you have to make any modifications to get it to work for this application? When do you think this is a better choice than using a chiller? I haven't heard of this approach to cooling a tank before.

Absolutely gogeous. I can only imagine what is financially invested in a tank that size.

Beautiful tank!!! Looks like something you'd see at the Aquarium. Maybe you should think about charging admission.. kidding.

I'm also interested in your power demand. Any idea of your monthly consumption?

Well we knew it would happen one day! Congrats on the TOTM. And good luck on the book. I think there is a strong need for better books. Every time I pick up a reef keeping related book, it always seems to be way out-of-date.

Stunning Tank. Shows just how far this hobby has come..and why i am starting to call this a Lifestyle. To create and maintain something this beautiful requires a lifestyle to match. Well done. Any chance of a few vids.

I notice he used "Great stuff" to help build the aquascape. Is this stuff salt water safe, or does it need some sort of coating? Can any one help please.
