  1. After lurking the forum for a few years, allow me to share my reefing experience. This is my aquarium-in-progress. ACROPOLIS Acro: 1. (greek) the highest point; 2. Acropora, a genus of coral -polis: (greek) city This aquarium draws inspiration from the famous Acropolis of Athens. This scape reminds me of the majestic ruins on top of the acropolis, the meandering path climbing upwards, as well as the sprawling civic districts at its feet. Coincidentally, the name also can be interpreted as acropora city, a good fit of the corals home to this aquarium. I did not document the build and the transitions, but I would like to share my experience here. I'll start with the overall visions i have for this set up. My aquarium should be balanced-minimal. There must be large open space balanced by dense growth and complex structure. There must be large organisms balanced by fine details. Although minimalist is the characteristic of this aqua-scape, the balance is the soul. The feeding tube on the right side and the labyrinth on the left encourage fishes to adopt a more natural behavior. They will take advantage of the shelter in the main scape, only to venture out into open when opportunity (feeding) arises. This creates a interesting shifts in dynamic. The rock work is the skeletal foundation of the main "acropolis", but I want organic growth to obscure most of it. eventually the rock should be almost invisible. The tank is placed in the corner of the living room. Therefore it offers two-sided view. The aqua-scape needs to be well proportioned for both view; there should also be minimum clutter of equipment on the viewing side. Uniformity is over-rated. I want to direct flow at where flow is needed; shine light on where light is needed, give food to where the food is needed. Efficiency is the name of the game here. My reefing decision needs to be deliberate. if a hardware is setup in a certain way, I must be able to justify how it helps my tank to do better. This aquarium is still work-in-progress. Thank you for reading, and feedbacks.

  8. Many YouTube tutorials out there, but for a start, you’ll need the following. - 32mm pipe (for overflow and emergency pipe) - 32mm gate valve (to have precision for silent operation) - 90Degree elbows in 32/25mm - Unions in 32/25mm - 25mm pipe (for return line) I’m currently working on mine, and got all my pipeworks from ReefmarketSG

  11. Need to consider freight charges, etc. Pricing will depend on source-supplier price, freight charges, transportation, overhead cost, profit margin, cover possible lost due to death, etc. So some lfses running on lower operating cost and doing fast turnover sales will be selling competitive compared to those high overheads and high profit margin lfses. Is demand and supply eventually in long run. So got to support those lfses selling competitive. Quality, customer service, etc will be subjective and for individual to experience.
