I'm getting auto misters though .

Lighting:
Aquamedic 3X 150W Metal Halide,4 80W T5's and moon lights (internal ballast)
Corallife 3X 150W Metal Halide, 4 96W PC's & moon lights (External ballast)

I'm really not stoked on the current flow in my 165g, its nice at the one end but the zoas on the other get much slower flow so I want to fix that with this tank. Plus Flash Gorden grew a little faster than I expected .

My bro is moving into my house so instead of 2 tanks we decided on one big one, still working out the kinks with Kevin but would like to see this installed within the month.

Those dims are excellent. Lots of depth and dry arm pits.

Don't worry Brett it's easy to get confused when I type, some times I don't realize other people actually read my comments .

Still finalizing plans on it but I'm going to take my 150 mangroves and plant them in my brothers 150 mangrove tub, should make for one amazing filtration patch.

The days of polluting my tank with deodorant are almost over!! We debated on the dimensions for a while but in the end we both wanted to see a shallower deeper tank.
Can't wait to see the final product!!

That's funny because that's something I'm conscious of every time I'm forced to go into the tank. I always fear that.
