My name is Mark Poletti and when I was asked to share my tank with reef builders I was honored and happy to oblige. My system is a 180 US gallon starfire display that was designed to house some different exotic corals and fish that are available in the marine hobby of today. I have always been an aficionado of stony corals and the amazing colors they possess. The system is a basic design that is simple and accessible to help me to complete the simple tasks that help our tanks prosper. Along with the hobby of housing corals and marine fish, I have also become more interested in digital photography. Looking at a reef tank through a camera’s viewfinder has increased my awareness of the smaller details of the hobby that I now come to appreciate more than ever. Photography has become a great tool for reef keepers to share their pride and joy since our tanks are spread out all over the world.
