Hey, big congrats, Rich!! Most deserved, that's for sure. While the Canreef spread looks great, I still say this tank has to be seen in person to really appreciate its full awesomeness. And your frag tank,.. heck, it is nicer that my display tank!!

Again, congrats, and enjoy the fame!

How did I miss all the excitement yesterday? Rich, well deserved and let's not forget the true owner, Mrs. Bblinks... Without her Rich wouldn't have this great tank to play with. As I have said many times ( esp to the reefers on the island) if you are ever in Vancouver do not forget to drop by Rich's... It is truly a reefer's tourist destination ( plus you also get the chance to buy a few souviners to take back home)!:biggrin:

Awesome job BBlinks! I always love your tank and feel great that some of my corals have come right from you!! Great work!:mrgreen:

Looks great!

This is my favorite line from the whole write up; "I am terrible with names, so I won't even attempt it. I know I have some ORA, Tyree, Reefraft ... who cares! If it's nice and you like it, then buy it and make it grow."

Thanks again for everyone's nice word. Lately I been going through some tough time with the tank, not that anything is wrong with it but seem to be losing a lot of interest. It's people like you guys whom keep me trucking through this wonderful hobby. Thanks again everyone, much appreciated!

Go bigger!!That'll spark your interest. I really dont know how you could be losing interest. Maybe you should vape. Haha

Rich! No way man! Cant lose interest now! Your tank now graces my desktop at work. Get a chair, sit your butt down in front of it and really LOOK at what you've accomplished..living ART
When your done that, give me a shout. I'll swap frags with you!

Thanks very much Darryl. I have always admired your tank and having this coming from you is a honor. Unfortunately things are just not good for me right now. Kids are growing older and school work is piling up. I really have to re-evaluate my priorities. Anyways, we will see how it goes. Thanks again!

I know what you mean about priorities. I hope you can stick with it for another year or so, your tank should be really mature by than and on a whole new level.

Again great work...

Hey Rich this is Gary. Grabbed some frags off ya early this summer. Beauty beauty beauty. Very nicely done. Looking at your beautiful aquarium made me feel like Wayne and Garth in the presence of Alice Cooper. "WE'RE NOT WORTHY"!
Cheers bud. Way to go
