Maximus, The tank is a Lee-Mar Rimless Starphire.

invincible569, Your previous and current tank is one of my Idol tanks, thanks for the inspiration.

Ahh, my last tank was a Leemar. Great company. Do you perhaps have any closeup shots of the tanks construction? I would love to see some detailed shots of a Leemar rimless tank.

Maximus, sorry i don't have any pics of the tanks construction, but i am satisfied with the quality of the tank. I love Elos, and i'm sure yours is one beautiful and well constructed tank.

That looks amazing, definitely one of the more unique aquascapes out there! It gives me a lot of inspiration and ideas for my new 24" cube, so thank you for sharing those pics.

Just upgrade to a larger tank and tried to do open aquascaping like yours. I failed miserably. You have given me the inspiration to try again. Any closeup pics of the rock works? How they come together?
Thanks for sharing.

Outstanding aquascape.

IMHO, you're fully stocked. I'd grow-out the corals you have and be very, VERY picky about adding any more corals. This tank will look fantastic when the corals grow a bit.

This is just my opinion! Keep up the great work.

cpreefguy, Thanks! Good luck with your 24" cube. Aquascaping is the fun part but a pleasing view from all 3 sides is a bit challenging.

Mikigo, I'll try to take some shots as soon as the lights turn on.

Ewan, I agree i am gonna let these guys grow out and not add any more for now.

I really dig your setup. That shaddow shot looks just like a bonzai. Were did you get those seat that are positioned infront of your tank?

Again this tank gets my vote for having one of the best aquascapes I have ever seen.

WOW naka thank you for your positive input it means a lot! Your tank has also had a lot of influence on mine. It has really inspired me to go the same route, Thank you for the inspiration.

JRaquatics, I got those seats at a local modern furniture shop, i thought i needed something round to offset all the square and rectangles in the room.

Again thank you all for your wonderful comments!

That looks fantastic. Do you have any top-downs showing the spacing?

Maximus, I see you're in Monterey, nice! I'm not too far from you over here in Salinas. I see we are into the same things lol, very nice NSX! I've always loved the NSX, such a beautiful car. I own a 300zxTT with ~600rwhp, hence the name lol. What LFS, if any, do you frequent? Anyway, sorry to hijack and get off topic.

Once again, tank looks awesome, Crazy! Thanks for the full room shots, seriously a piece of art you have there. The morning shot is epic!

I shot some pics before the lights came on, i figured it might show more details on the parts where they join. I try to use the zip ties in a way that it wont show too much, the rods and epoxy are hard to see due to it being used to butt two pieces together. Enjoy

The top down shots really show off the depth youve achieved. This is definatly my favortie aquascape Ive ever seen.

Ive always thought I was a good aquascaper.

My wife keeps shooting down the idea of me using rods and fixing the rock permenantly. I keep telling her, its a sound idea, I could just never show her some one who applied it this well. Now your tank may have her convinced that its possible

With creative aquascapes like this, they should start having reef aquascaping competition's like ADA's worldwide show.
