Cool 30 gallon Mixed Reef wonderland

All I can say is, good bye simple and hello future gadjets haha.

So, all thanks to Terry(themarineaprentice) for entering that nano contest and showing me how to build your own acrylic tank.

Watching this guy build his tank made me realize that this is so easy that I could definitly do my own and for only $85.00. So I got to thinking....and drawing....and more drawing....and some measuring....and some arguing with myself until finally I came to the conclusion that the perfect tank upgrade for me is a 20.25 x 20.25 x 11.75 cube tank with a nano style built in sump.

With these dimensions, i didn't really have to worry about light upgrades at the moment, but still gives me the opportunity to add a phosban reactor and all that shiny stuff to spend my money on

So since no one on Canreef likes to read without have at least 10 pictures there I shall give you pictures.

....K so I guess you people can only have a few pictures because my internet is being gay....

MOAR PIKTURES!

Seriously though I love it. The scape is looking good. Just some clarity issues you need to fix.

Now go slap some mangroves in the back.

fortunate for Terry & Josh I am sticking with LPS, Softies, shrooms, zoa's and of coarse CLAMS in my tanks for the mean time until I can figure out if I will be able to grow SPS in the new tank.
