i have been waiting for this month to finally come. JohnS your tank should have hit in my opinion a year ago. I have seen this tank for my own eyes and the word "Beautiful" doesn't capture his tank.

Congrads jOHNS ill be out to get some frags from you very shortly.

Great Tank.
Well deserved.
On question you mention that you dosed 2 part for some time can you please post what amount of 2 part would such a tank consume on daily basis? also yo umentioned dosing Mag few times a week where Randy suggests adding 610 ml after each gallon of A and B so can you explain why you would add MG every week.

Very nice John!

I'm woking on a similar system as yours..a little longer, but not as wide. It's been up for a few months now with a few frags.

I was wondering how you positioned your tunzes without detracting from the peninsula view?
