    Oh yeah I saw that clam. There were some crazy looking yellow tangs too. And I love the pink tail he's got in there.

    The article says that anthias are his fav, so it makes sense that he has tons.

    if you search this thread and/or the net a bit, you can find a write up about his set up. It's pretty automated. He made it a point that he wants to spend his time enjoying it, not maintaining it.
