I am considering the same dimensions as your tank except for about 4" shorter height. Are you happy with these dimensions still? I am actually downgrading the size of my reef so I am concerned that I will be unhappy. I am pretty sure the wife will kill me in my sleep if I make another change. Thanks.

Freaking awesome, your tank is amazing (just sign in for this forum) looking for some ideas and I think I might steal yours....... however it seems to be quite difficult to duplicate......

Surprised to see this thread still alive (barely) I think your tank would look killer with the 4" shorter height. I wanted to keep a cube look and was worried i would lose that look if i went any shorter so i only went as low as 24". I think your dimensions would be perfect for a shallow reef scape.

Hi Thor,
Do you have any current FTS (full frontal shot) photos of your tank so I/We can see the whole tank?
And also a current pic of your equipment?
Have you changed any of the original equipment since the years have passed?
Any and all additional current photos are appreciated.

Thanks so much ;-)

Congrats, the thing has become amazing over the years! I have to ask what is that a monti on your floor of the tank? I know you have a WM chalice, but i cant find any close ups of the other guy.

Im running bare bottom currently and debating on if i want sand of to stick with BB when i toss up my 180g. :/

Thanks! to tell you the truth i really don't know what it is? i picked it up as a frag because it had a green base with red polyps. Now it just has grown into one big red acro. The base of the coral is green but as it grows into the light it looses the green and turns red? If kept under lower light it has the same characteristics as a watermelon acro.

Many congrats Thor and tank looks amazing as always. I was so inspired by your work that my previous six foot tank had aquscaping done on your ideas. I am about to start my new 56cm optiwhite cube and once again aquascaping on Bonsai tree format. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful experience with us.
