I'm new here. My name is Wayne and I live in Nova Scotia. I'm a cabinet maker by trade but build quite a few custom acrylic tanks. I also like to go out side the norm and try new things. This is a video of my personal tank I built. It measures 96x32x25.5. It's made out of 3/4 cast acrylic and has been setup for about a year. I used to have a 300 gallon plywood tank that I built as well but sold it. I'll include a video link of it just before I shut it down. Anyway this first vid shows my tank about 3 months after I had coppered my display for what I though was ich but it turned out I had flukes. All has been well since I used prazi pro. I used cuprisorb and carbon to clean up cuprimine. It seams to do just what seachem claims as all my coral is doing great. Anyway this video shows pretty much my whole simple system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUBxLyjLAJg
And here's a video of my old 300 plywood. Euphilla garden

Thanks! I do love my tangs. Im working on my wife. I told her the plan the other night. 600 gallon. 96x48x30. She just asked how I was going to pay for it. When I told her I could pay for the materials by selling this tank she was like ok... If I build it it'll be my biggest tank to date. I've built one 500 gallons before. I seen it yesterday. Buddy that has it bought my Ray and shark. Might as well share a vid of it after we moved it into his house. He was pretty excited lol
Here's the link.

500 gallons...just awesome, makes me giddy just thinking about a tank that size, not so much about the maintenance though lol
