Awesome build you have here. Great line up of equipment. What are your coral plans?

I'm thinking mostly a Ricordea and Zoa garden.

 

Where have I seen this before?

 

:P

 

 

Looks great, FOLLOWING :happy:

 

Thanks, I had a very talented person to look to for inspiration. :D

I love when the wives get involved in reefing. I had to get my wife a biocube a few years back. I have tried many times to upgrade her to a better setup but she loves it. Anyway, looks good, can't wait to see it filled and growing.

Sorry I haven't posted pictures yet, my finals are Wednesday so I've been a bit occupied!

 

I'm also having a hard time choosing what paint color I want for my stand. I promise I'll try to decide soon. :)
