Congratulations Marc! The article is awesome but this tank & set up need to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. The coolest I've seen in Canada, truly a world class reef & well deserved recognition. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Excellent tank, would you be able to provide details on how you attached the rock to the PVC frame. It looks excellent.

Hi

Grate looking setup.
I would love to see more info on how you built the tank and skimmer. And if you built any thing else. It’s grate to see someone save some money in this hobby. I like how you set up your lights also. I pland to do something like that when I get my next Tank. and I wish you lived nearby, so you could show me how to save some money in this hobby.
Best of luck if the future.
Charles.

Outstanding - Congratulations.

If that girl ever goes missing the first place the police need to look is inside your skimmer

You've got to be kidding me with that skimmer....wow!!

Beautiful tank, and it's very evident that lots of love and commitment has gone into it.

Congratulations!

Whats blows me away with TOTM's is that you think after seeing that months tank, there is no way it can get any better. And not that the next months is any better "wrong choice of words" just different. This tank is proof of that, builder knew what he wanted from his perspective on reefing and took it to another level and it works perfect.
