I'm possibly considering this tank. Any pro's/con's now that you've had it for a bit - in general and compared to the IM Nuvo tanks?

I think IM tanks are great tanks (had a 20g peninsula) and as close to ready right out the box as you can get.  These UNS tanks are still fairly new and do require some upgrades (notably the pump) and the filter chambers are small (and probably have less filtration options as the IM).  That said, it's a beautiful tank and I prefer the dimensions of this tank over a comparable sized IM tank.

I do trim a little almost daily.  I go back and forth on whether to just let this grow grow grow or to do a major trim.  What's your vote?

If you let it grow much more we won't see any rock.

100% I've been trimming just enough to keep that center rock exposed (and avoid the gorgs from being completely swallowed up).

It looks amazing! But I do think you should trim it a little more on the left so we can see more of the gorgonians!!

Fair.  I'm sure the gorgs would be happier too with a big trim over there.  I'm always nervous when I trim a lot.  I feel like I'm cutting someone's hair (and I have no idea how to do that btw) and will get some complaints if I don't do a good job.

In case anyone cared about my filter floss sich, this @inTank filter floss holder for the WB7 works for this tank.
