Figured I finally post some pictures of my 40B. The idea was for something super simple.....and cheap (cost effective).
This tank came about after my 46 Bow Fronts brace let go.....which replaced my BC29 when we moved into our new house. A larger tank is in the works...... Until then, this is it at the 9 month mark via crappy cell phone pics.
Thanks for look'n!
Petco 40B during the $ per gallon sale.
LFS sump on "clearance" for $20. I think it's a 20 high.
MP10 - inTank "blueprint" sale.
Glass-holes overflow for $65.
Ebay skimmer for $65.

Inhabitants of the tank include Zoas (99% from Tenor), LPS, basic SPS and two Rainbow BTAs (originally one, from Lawnman).......and a S-load of aiptasia ("Thanks LFS!")
Pair of Clowns (Picasso and Phantom)
YWG and Tiger Pistol Shrimp
Oh, and a bunch of Berghia Nudies to munch on the Aiptasia.
These are mostly outdated pictures, but I'll replace with new ..................at some point. Too lazy.
Any questions or comments, fire away!
