Cool, looking really good there.
Well since I donated a huge hunk o' colt to Phong, and cleaned the glass being amazed with how good it looks when there's not a brown haze on it... I decided to take a couple pictures.
This is my 60"L x 18"W x 24"H Uncontrolled softie experiment tank. Light consists of 2-54w Giessmann "Blue" bulbs, and 2-175W 12,000K Reeflux (although I'm probably going to go with Jeremy's $25 "ghetto" bulbs when these get swapped out)
First: T5s only
Second: Both T5s and MH on... although I do have a delay between the MH firing, so one half is lit, then both, then the other only.
My 225 gallon Tank a year later
wow! nice tank. what are the tank dimensions
Mine is ugly and tiny compare to you guys's but wth ;D .. I will remove the Tunze and install another K1 (Thanks Dudley!) next time I do WC.
very nice phong, like the variety of color. why changing the tunze? too much flow?
not really.. I like flow going both directions instead of one way all the time. I will have the K1s on the timer. Each will run about 18 hours a day.. In that pic the Tunze is not running.. I can't have both of those running at the sametime. I won't have any water in the tank ;D ..
Tank Dimension 72" L x 36" Wx 20" H
Hey Dudley what are those black things hanging in the middle of your light hangers? Those seem like the perfect thing to do all those minor adjustments to make them level.
They are retractable pulley type hangers
Dudley, the tank looks awesome.
Phong, looking good. I think I need some of the red macro from you jk. Dudley, nice tank. Love the dimensions.
Thanks to Joyce, was her tank prior to mine
I thought the tank looked familiar
Glad to see the reef looking so great.
I dream of setting up something that large again.
Yeah I recall hearing about the tank Dudley was going to get and was ready to swoop in like a vulture if he didn't want it
Even though it is acrylic... *sigh*
Wow, I'm embarrassed to put my FTS shot up against all these dreamy tanks...
Most current FTS:

Don't laugh at me.
Jay, I really like your ledge work; how it creates depth.
I am getting such great ideas for my new tank from everyone. Thanks!
Your tank looks great Jay.. Better than mine for sure ;D ..
here are a few pics of mine.
very nice ) Is that the elos70 on your own stand?
