Looking great! can't wait to see it stocked, is there any bowing with the 3/4" acrylic?

The acrylic is 1" thick and the reason for that is to negate bowing with the rimless design. So with that said there is no bowing what so ever.

Update: Tank cycle first week once again thanks to a couple bottles of biospira, some live rock, and skimmer gunk. Fish were added few days ago. 3 green chromis and a yellow coris wrasse and are all doing fine. Diatoms are blooming and the hermits are eating them ommm nom nom :3

Re did the scape to slow flow from the return. It was making the torch very mad. Now flow is more diverse aswell :3

I really like that scape!

If you were into the puberty phase, you'd be a ####ing neckbeard. Get out of here you ####ing tween #### ##### ass mother####er stupid ##### bastard ####er chicken leg pride rally supporter. Get out of here with your poverty opinions you ####ing ice cream sandwich stupid #### ##### alter ego reported for harassing me and I messaged the FBI and I left Obama a voicemail and wrote a postcard to your parents.
Enjoy not posting you giant neckbeard looooser.

Do you even logic?

 

thanks jen. i have him on ignore so i don't get sick whenever he's craving attention. kazooie, to be honest the world would be better off without you and your parents will actually be happy when they discover you lifeless in the bathtub with slit wrists. HTH

Got a yellow tang. But hes got black spots on him so Ill be feeding him some seaweed to try and boost his immune system. Just got him from the lfs and the next day he had spots. Ill be ordering some garlic stuff for the mysis he likes . Still waiting to make this last payment on my tv so I can get a cuc suitable for a tank this size... The snails cant keep up with this stupid hair looking algae :/ everything will be in order soon. Ill be buying a octo hang on skimmer next month.

Hows the tank coming along!? Just looking at the pictures of the tank cycling are getting me excited!

Im planning on getting a similar sized tank when I upgrade (though it will be slightly smaller, 75 gallons)

I'm pretty sure this tank is for sale now if you check CL in Ft Wayne.

Personally, I'm offended. Tom's thread is gold. Platinum, even.
