Absolutely beautiful system!

From a cost perspective what would a system such as that set you back? Something to dream for when i get a new place!

How do you add corals and live rock in such a large system, Scuba Diving?

Congrats! Well deserved. I have followed your thread for a long time and I fknew it was only a matter of time before you got this honor. I only wish I had run across your tank before I had ordered my tank so both you and Spazz could have helped me in my build. Not nearly your size but still large enough to run across some errors that I'm sure you could have solved before they actually became issues. Anyway, good job and I look foward to more pics down the road.

Awesome tank.. If only there were 72 hours in a day, then I could get three more jobs to support a tank that size. Fantastic tank. Congrats.
