NO, not another cracked tank!!! :scarry:

I hope everyone on Nano-Reef feels your pain. :grouphug:

I think this contest should be voided completely.

Far to many contestants have lost their tank & livestock.

Down with Nano-Cubes

Down with JBJ

Sledgehammer party at my office tomorrow, smash the 6!!!

I'm going to have to put your boycott jbj link back in my sig.
Your entry was outstanding... the winner so far, imo. I am so glad I did not buy one of these.

Sorry you lost those corals. ..at least this will be another nail in jbj coffin. Hopefully no one else will suffer the crappy product they produce. jbj is doing so much more harm than good for this hobby.

Who would think a box of water could be so much fun?

OK. Here is my offical Contest entry post. As you can see in this thread, my NC6 busted so I will post pictures until that moment.

Here is my humble official entry photo. You can already see custom overflow I made on the left-top of the back divider.

brianemone: Thanks for that comment. Yep I am trying to acheive my vision!
ashburn: Hmmm, tad too long? LOL
Here is my first addition to my tank. My LFS had huge beautiful piece and I noticed two sections where it looked like it broke off. So I asked owner, if I can buy the pieces that broke off if they had it and he gave it to me for $20. I guess I am lucky!!!!

Thanks!


oogie,

How did you glue those frags on the stone? I am assuming that you left the stone in the water?

And, what is the glue?

Thanks.
