Thanks, Prowland. I do too. Its something different for me, I usually go with the back wall up to the surface. But, I'm going with the open island look. I will attempt to put all rock in the center, with open sand in front and back. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks, bro. You know I can always use frags. Anything you got that is small, just keep me in mind!

 

I've decided that the frags I bought from you will be the first that I put in this tank. Just a little thank you for helping me out. B)

Pacific Reef is awesome. Great staff and great prices. It has now become my number one stop. I highly recommend it if you live in SoCal.
