That is just awesome
also on a side not I'll be adding a 20x10x10 " mantis tank to the side of this tank once this tank is finished-I mantis shrimp are the reason I got into this hobby back in 07
This was my first tank back in 07 and if you look at the bottom cave you can see the mantis
and before that this is what I was into
Will it be plumbed into the main tank?
yeah and I think will have some sea grass and non invasive macro and be on a opposite light schedule-so I guess it will be a display fuge
I bet it'll be awesome
. mabe some sea grasses too with some grass shrimp!
I really like this idea.
Gah! How have I missed this! Looks really well thought out.
Sounds like this will be pretty awesome.
You're certainly getting the hype up, so you better be able to deliver! Hahaha...
j/k I'm sure you'll pull off the execution just fine. I was just referring to the "greatest movie ever" phenomenon. Ya know, where you tell someone "movie x is the best movie ever" and then when they go see it they have all these high expectations and they end up not liking it... So do you have any preliminary ideas on how to pull it off?
Following!!!!!!!! Konolua watch out this might be the new HOT thing in NR or at least the expectation build up is crazy.

Hard work,taking my time, more hard work-trust me it'll be pretty awsome
yeah I already saw that link
I am really excited to see this tank develop
well my inlaws are comming for the weekend so i'll be gone for a few days but on monday I'll have around 15 pics of my progress cya then
also this guys flickr account has a lot a lot alot of isperation and aswome low tide pics.
I thought this was cool!
Time for an update-I know I said monday but I got busy and my comp was being retarded-anywho on with the pics,by the way my camera is kinda old so the pics arn't so good
this is a fts
for the mangrove island I want to make a bowl-ish shape to be filled with fiji mud for the black mangroves. For this I used acrylic rods and 4 epoxy sticks.I used a large boulder for the bottom and then just mounted each piece to form a bowl.
acrylic rod-drilling rock is not that fun
semi finished, need to cover the acrylic rods and cover the white epoxy-the mangrove rock can hold around 2.5 lbs of mud(i need to take a pic of the inside)
side shot here you can see the overflow that will be a herbie inside. I still have to modify it to accommodate the tides
Here's the little right coral island-only gonna due a few sps now and have a mix of coral and macro to make it more natural
finally got the vid to upload-don't mind the clicking as that my crappy camera autofocus
I really like this idea and am tagging along to see how you develop your idea.
Thanks and I have idea in my head but it's cool to see it come to life
I fixed your spelling
Always nice to see someone take the less treaded path. Really looking forward on seeing this at full glory.
yeah for this tank I wanted somethign differnt both in size and creature wise-my past two tank were very typical tanks
my last tank
As I been thinking of my tank I've decided that I'm going to more make it a creature feature tank. Meaning that it will have alot of inverts. so for my stock list
8x blue eyed cardinal
1x blue star leopard wrasse
1x fathead anthias (maybe)
12x grass shrimp
1x porcelain crab
1x sea cucumber
1x harlequin crab
1x peppermint shrimp/skunk shrimp
2x red fiddler crabs
1x Peterson shrimp
3x sexy shrimp (maybe)
1x emerald crab (maybe)
assortment of snails around 10ish
If all goes well I should have this thing wet in 10-14 days. Also next week i'll be ordering my black and red mangroves as well as my mud for the black mangroves
Man this tank is going to be absolutely amazing. Your stock list sounds just plain awesome!!
