Yesterday we showed off Dr. Sanjay’s 500-gallon reef tank, but it seems he has another 500-gallon reef at work as well (see video above). This tank, like his reef at home, is SPS dominated. However, his home reef seems to have a greater diversity of corals and fish. Regardless, Dr. Sanjay’s work tank is still very beautiful with its very large and mature Acropora colonies.
Sanjay, a professor at Penn State University, is an engineer who really focuses a lot on reef aquarium lighting. He tests hundreds of different combinations of aquarium lighting, including everything from metal halides to LEDs. His research has been used by countless reefkeepers to help them choose the right lighting for their tanks.
