Its really hard to say... if work came in I would let the tank sit and go make some money. I think there was at least one month that I didnt work on the tank. The rock work was very tedious and took most of the time. Filling in the gaps was pretty easy... it only took a few days.

How do you like the SRO?
Have you considered getting the cleaning head?

I was thinking about taking some more shots of the tank or maybe doing a video.

Thanks. I just got back from a vegas trip and unfortunately, gave them some of their money back. I wish you the best of luck if you go.

I know youre joking but its true to a certain extent. If you back up too far from the tank for the FTS you cant see any details... plus, Im not that good with a camera.

Well folks, I'm back after quite a few yrs of inactivity. The tank was running ok but I decided to start fresh again and redo some plumbing issues. I'm going to have peaceful fish this go around and will update as I add them... Just thought I'd put the thread up for those that missed it originally. My 13 yr old son (reef addict) wants to start adding some real corals so that will be fun also. We will also be adding some led lighting to the tank and I'll post pics of them too.

Pic of the new reeflo dart pump for the closed loop...there were too many elbows with the old setup... These flexible pvc pipes worked great.

Just saw your thread for the first time. I love the very creative and unique rock work. It reminds me of swim throughs while diving.

Amazing rock work. You should have an aquascaping business.
