since you're the inspiration for my "dream tank", I thought I'd share the thread link here:

http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/sh....php?t=2589632

It's getting closer. I changed it from a dropoff tank to a dropoff + cave tank

yes i am not happy either... will work on something new!

great tank. can you give your opinion on the coral box d500, pros and cons? i'm considering getting one since it seems to be a perfect fit for my sump and 60 gallon mixed reef set up.

thanks

hi!

thanks! i really canīt recommend it... i switched it for a new Bubble King Double Cone 200.
The coral box wasnīt working right for me because it didnīt build a constant skimmate...

now having the Royal Exclusive for over 2 months i am more than happy!

Cheers

Love your latest shots, Flo.
The fourth one looks like it's about to take off and I love the colour and texture. Really nice.
And number 6 looks like there's a little monster face looking up at us from the centre of the coral.
