Beautiful, like the rockscape and wrasse collection. Looks like you added a “rock fill” since the original Jester6 version? Did you add the reef brites at the same time as T5s or did you get them later? Do you feel like the reef brites help acro coloring, make colors show better, or both?

The center rock was just added. It was a trial piece from Real Reef Rock that I convinced them to sell me at Macna. Again -- still not sure what to put on it.

Reefbrites have been on since day one. They make a big difference in making Acros "pop" at least visually. Not sure if they help color them up anymore (other than it's more PAR) as they've always been on this tank.

Love your tanks Bruce. Even more beautiful in person. Very nice combinations of color and form.

It's been quite awhile since I've seen your tank in person. It looked good then and now it looks just that much better. Very clean...nice solid pics too.
