nice tank dimensions ! plenty of space for acros !
May I ask why a new tank since your current one isn't that old ?
And will you continue with vertex for ligthing ?

I think ill want a bigger one down the track anyway, and before this one grows in and makes the move harder i thought id look into it now. Also I have a tank builder mate, who is building it for just the cost of the glass so im getting it extremely cheap!

i now have a 10x80w ATI PM that will be hung above it, i would love to have the illumina but cant justify the cost of it for that size tank. its $5k here for the 1800...id rather spend the money on stock, like an achilles, 30 anthias, some yellow tangs, SPS, zoos.

So, a third of a tub of zeo speed glue, 8 tubes of super glue, 10 tubes of aquaknead, 100 cable ties to hold it while drying and this is the new scape....

Great looking system

I have this question bothering me for quite some time: When you put the SPS frags so close together, when they grow into each other will they just adapt, or the strongest wins?

Also, what putty did you use for gluing these rocks together? Thanks

Nice collection man. How is the spread front to back with the LED? Does the par drop off towards the front?
