I enjoyed this article, gives a complete run down of all technical data, equipment and the history, various points of failure and success.
This reef tank is located in South Dakota.
The photos speak for themselves, enjoy...

That tank is stunning. I'll make time later to read through it, but that Montipora sp. Twirl he has going on there is really cool.

That Bubble King skimmer he is using is over $4,000.
You can really see that it's working though...

At $4,000, I sure hope it is working.

I have to ask though, is a $4,000 skimmer REALLY necessary?

Nope, and that's a great question.
All that really matters is that it works! Wink

p.s. I think a good chunk of that cost is the Red Dragon Pump.

Either way, I think $4,000 is about $3,500 more than I would be willing to spend on a skimmer.

Looking at his list, I figure that's about a $10-12K system.
(without the $4,000 skimmer)
