For anyone who's not seen this, it's a monumental reef tank, about the very biggest and best I've seen.

I've seen some vast tanks over 100,000L but it seems the bigger they get the less reefy they are, but this is a full blown reef in every sense of the word.

Here's episode one, showing the tank, it's huge dimensions, and some of its construction.

I don't need to post links to the following episodes, you'll find the rest! ;)

And for some further reading, I've just been reading this http://petersfishtank.com/specifications/

It's a long read, but I've picked up a few hints and tips from it already... :D

So peter's fish tank channel released an update vid a couple of weeks ago. No talking, but a good look nonetheless.

(ps if you're seeing this the first time, the video in the first post shows this staggering build, and is episode 1 of a series talking over the tank).

A lot, like angelfish are reef risky. Some may, some may not nip at corals. And some may nip once, owner freaks out and gets rid of the fish, but it'd never have done it again.

In a tank that size, the odd coral nippage isn't the end of the world. You've enough corals growing, a parrotfish taking a bite of your acro to chew on, just keeps it in trim, like gardening.  :grin:
