Thanks for the tank spotlight!

I’ve been reefing for 3 years now after keeping high tech planted tanks for many years prior and once I saw a fully stocked mixed reef in person I was hooked. This is my first large tank after keeping multiple nanos and juggling 3 of them at once became such a chore( sps in all three smh) so the search began and. I found a beautiful used custom tank on Craigslist and all I had to buy was more rock and sand.
The tank is coming up on 6 months old now and was a straight transfer of all my 3 nanos with zero losses. It is a mixed reef with mostly lps and anemones but have a few thriving sps.

Livestock:

It’s remarkable that your anemones and LPS seem to play nice. I would’ve guessed there’d be a lot of stinging and roaming.

Beautiful!
I’ve noticed healthy euphyllia stand their ground and the nems find spots around them, my sps on the other hand......
