Feeding this tank must be quite a chore.

You can see this kind of tank in Oregon. Ive been thinking of adding a powerful chiller to a tank, and adding these types of corals and fish. They live and thrive at temps below 70 f.....

+ika manashvili It means that light is not their main way to grow.You feed them stuff like shrimp and silversides ( small fish) for them to get their nutrients to grow.You can still have lights,it just wont benefit them.

A 40g drum isn't the same as a harbor. The results you'd get wouldn't be nearly what the people at the Aquarium of the Pacific. They feed this tank all day long, and have plenty of water on hand to change it out. Talk with them next time you visit to learn how they care for this tank.

could i pump water into a 40 gallon drum with mangroves chaeto for a month until i do a water change so that the plankton from the beach help feed the corals,thats what they do ive been there they have a harbor right in back

Any info on how this aquarium is being fed? Even the most remote coral looks healthy. Do they target feed them or is the water just rich in nutrients?

This tank must be fed alot especially with the dendro's, do you what kind of volume of water that cycles through it 24/7 to keep the nutrients at a non toxic level? This is the most impressive non photo tank I have ever had the good fortune to see, thx for posting it.

That's an amazing aquarium!!! No the animals in the tank wouldn't die if exposed to light most are found deep but where some light still reaches them.

wow this tank is gorgeous! The animals seems very healthy for most of the colonies. That would be very interesting if the Pacific Aquarium share its recipe to feed all those ungry and fragile mouths!
