Introduction

Hi, I'm from Montreal, Qc. Canada.

ReefAquarist since 2003.

My 65g. mix reef tank, Zoanthids and SPS dominated.

My objectives : have a nice, clean and colorfur tank ! Like a piece of Art.
Without a sump, with basic equipment and a very simple maintenance.

"Remember the two benefits of failure. First, if you do fail, you learn what doesn't work; and second, the failure gives you the opportunity to try a new approach."

- Roger Von Oech

Lighting

There is much debate over types of lights and I believe it simply comes down to personal preference and budget. I upgrade my led to the Maxspect R420R Razor 160 watt 16000k .

My Setting (Manual Mode) :

09h00 A 0% B 1%
10h30 A 0% B 50%
