i see you are watermarking your pics now LOL

....but i'd suggest doing it somewhere other than the corner of the pic....those are too easy to re-size the pic to take it out. takes a lil more work, but worth it

i'd suggest doing it in a clear/opaque text that goes across the upper or lower middle of the picture. might block a tiny bit of the pic, but much harder to edit your watermark out

I hear ya! I just hate the fact that it ruins the photo i figured at least i put something on it. I'm not too worried about it or else i'd just place it right smack in the middle lol hummmm nah!

I really love your tank setup. And how it's set-up in your house very clean and simple. Looks great!!!!! I don't know if your interested but they make window blinds that give you the option of opening them from the top or bottom. That way you can open the top half of the window but still have the bottom half to block the sun from you tank. Just though I would mention it.

Thanks Ratkiller i may just have to look into that. I really don't mind not opening the blinds but that's always an option.

This tank is the most amazing tank I've ever seen. This thread needs revival.

I agree as well,
I am starting my cycle tonight on my new tank, (getting back into the hobby after a 5 year break).

This thread has been my inspiration for the last few months while I was putting things together....

The inspiration of this thread is alive and well. Not only with the recent posts but with all of the tanks that now sit in in living rooms that Thor has greatly influenced (mine included). The quintessential plant a seed and watch it grow.

Thank you so much guys!!! I am glad to be an inspiration to you all, Bonsai aquascaping can be very tedious but the end result is well worth it especially with all the comments I been receiving.

Hello neighbor! some of my corals came from Aquatouch, About the reef, Pets Inc and AZ seabottoms. All started from frags, some were online purchases as well.

Thor,

the tank looks amazing....quick question

do you do the 50 gallon change at one time? or is it spread out in smaller amounts during the month? also, how much top off do you do per day on the tank. Is it with Kalk or just ro/di water.

thanks...
