Following. I've been a member on this board for quite some time. There are a few names and tanks that have stuck out over time and your first shallow tank inspired both of my shallow builds. I'm still working toward the minimalist simplicity you made appear effortless. Apparently simple is not my natural state. Haha

Thanks, shallow tanks are the way. :D

I'm glad to see that you are starting again!

Hey Ark, good to see you around. Hope you are well! I'm excited to get going. :) Almost time for a new tank on your side?

Ahahaha. The new glass arrives this week, so unless something crazy happens (again :lol: ) - I should have the tank next week (end?). I hope so anyway, getting this tank built has been an adventure to say the least.

Unbelievably there was another glass chipping incident. Hopefully there are no issues with take 3. <_< The builder (and I) have just had some crazy bad luck with the glass, it's 12mm as well, so it's not some skinny panes. Oh well. Onwards we march. I started cycling my main rock in the sump so long. :D

Love what you did with the aquascape.  Still following along, anxiously waiting for more progression.

Haha! Yah, I just threw my corals and a few bits on rock along with the new rock into the sump so long. May as well do what I can while I wait. :)

Looking forward to seeing this tank. Your last shallow tank was one of the tanks that inspired me to get mine

Following along, of course! Bad luck with the glass, but I'm sure it will be worth it. Scape looks amazing so far!

June 12, 2017 Update;

Do I win a prize for the longest pre tank build thread ever or what? It's borderline embarrassing. :lol: Fingers crossed the tank should be done today or tomorrow, the final touches are currently being added. omgomgomg

 

In other news my beloved Trachyphyllia somehow got blown into my Acans, let's just say it's Acans 1 : Trachy 0 - it should survive but it was smashed on the one side. The rock is pretty much cycle now though, so that's good news. 

More soon! (I hope).
