Very Nice menard. Looks like another TOTM! Can you give an overview of your equipement, and maintenance practices. It helps those of us drooling think we might one day achieve what you have! Thanks, Chris

That is sooo awesome! Looks like every color of the rainbow is represented! Where do you guys get your SPS corals from? All the LFS's around here have little or no SPS and what they do have is usually the same thing week after week. What are some good, reliable websites for SPS's?

Bebo77 - Is that your tank? That's by far one of the coolest tank's I've ever seen. I wish you could send me some info on equipment and maintence on that beauty.

Whiteshark - check out reefscience.com out of Raleigh, NC. I just visited the owner's place today...awesome. He specializes in SPS and really takes care of them, and he'll bend over backwards to make sure you're happy. I recommend him.

Here is my 180 at 13 months. Alot of the stuff was transferred here from the old tank. This pic is kind of out dated. Things have grown out quite a bit.

Ok, Eric, Menard.....there should be a rule about true "cherry pickers" not being able to post pictures to make us all drool.


There is a reason why I went out and got a 400 gallon tank! It is called SPS envy!!!!

Looks great!
