Nice tank. I LOVED my 30 octo’s. 25 years ago you could find them for $15-20 at yard sales here in Florida. Easy to ‘scape and great swirl flow, plus they were viewable from any angle. Harder to find now as I think they’ve kinda fallen out of favor. I always had the seller leak test them before I bought ‘em. Back then, you could set up a fowlr for less than $125, lights, filter, LR and all!

This one is probably 25 years old. It was the gf's when she was kid. Flow was a challenge I found a 3 lower gph wavemakers were better than 2 that equal same gph. Happy with scape although might add more rock underneath just to raise up what's there. Added my first lps  coral yesterday. 6head Acan lord.
