hmm. i never set up my own salt water reef thank before, but what is it that is hard to replicate?
I think it's probably scale. A reef's beauty in nature is based on it's size and diversity which would be very hard to do without going to a tremendous size setup. Not that it can't look beautiful, but it would still not be as stunning as nature.
