    Jeremy, He went carpet surfing about 4 months ago when I had the netting off the top of the tank. I didnt think he was going to survive . For two days in the sump he was like limp and floating . Luckily he pulled through.

    Mike I had pictures of the tank stand build and also when I first set up the tank. Just not in a tank journal previuosly.

    Bernie I like them much better than the pendants I had before

    Awesome tank! Love all the monti-cap. Are you planning to enclose the stand, or leave it open?
