Well since today is officially one year of me enjoying this hobby I figured I would post some pics of my tank. I have learned alot over the last year and want to thank everybody who has helped me make it this far.

Just 1 year!!... Wow, Nick, you move fast,... and a very fast learner... And very innovative with that black sand. You might start a trend here...

Congrats.

Beautiful!
First time I've seen someone really make the black sand work
...kinda reminds me of those old black velvet paintings with glow in the dark bull fighters or what ever....except yours has class of course :razz:

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words. The black sand was a risk because I really couldn't find a lot of info saying it was a good or bad idea. Even when I purchased it at J&L the guy at the counter didn't know if it was reef safe, other than it said so on the bag. But i don't regret my choice. If I could afford LEDs I'm sure the colours would really glow!

I agree with the others. First tank with black sand I've seen that looks good. Great job!!

Many years ago, I had a planted FW tank with black sand. Sure made the green pop out. So not really surprised it would do the same with the corals and the LEDs,... just as long as it is reef safe.
