Are you actually gonna keep your tank after the contest? Be realistic!




PS I feel bad for all those open people who spent a bazillion bucks on an extremely diffucult to maintain system. Take my poll anyway, suckas. Stock tanks whoop it up. Woot woot


PS again, I meant to say tank, not take

I was planning this tank before the contest, when I got a hold of the canopy combo from Matt Gecko. I intend to keep it going as long as possible.


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

I think I upgrade to a shallower/wider tank... Custom or maybe a turtle tank type thing.

...Cause it's a tidepool!

99% chance I will keep it. Well, unless it gets overtaken by caulerpa like my 5.5g >_<

Every frag that goes in it is going to be meticulously examined for pests.
3g long: Wow, found my first tank thread (retired)
5.5g reef: 96w Quad 50/50("rigged")| AC500 full modded fuge. (retired)
2.5g reef: Complete DIY 2.5g acrylic tank & hood (retired due to split seam ;_;).
20g long prop tank. 10g sump, 175w MH.

Coming soon! 2.5g dubbed "Pulse".

There are no errors here. Good job. You may want to work on your capitalization, however.

Congrats!! :happydance: I just put my 6 day old back to sleep (up/down every 1-3 hours)... but it is worth every second.

Make sure to baby proof the tank for when your little one starts crawling/walking... fish tanks can be dangerous! :unsure:
