Awesome choice Kevin ... Your tank is certainly deserving. I am happy to say I have seen that tank in person and it is even more impressive than the pictures. Well done. I plan on being out there again too!!!

Heya Bob. That's funny about the turn signal bit. I almost put a caption.... "Turning left" under that picture.

Kevin,

Great looking tank. I especially like the way you've allowed it to mature without making major changes.

Congrats,

Agu

Awesome! Your tank could have been TOTM a long time ago, but I'm sort of glad you go it now that your reef is more grown out. Beautiful!! But hey Kevin, what the heck is this blue thing??
