    The tank is a standard US 180 gallon display; 72" x 24" x 24". It was manufactured by lee mar and it is 3 sided starfire with eurobracing. I built the stand and canopy out of red oak myself this time last year.

    Thank you. The thick acro is one I picked up in Feb of '07. It is just a really nice formosa color combo that I have never seen. It was a 3" branch when I found it in a wild shipment.

    Here are a couple shots of it

    Cmon Mark you need to fill that thing up. I see a few inches of real estate vacant. :)

    Very nice BTW. I am so looking for my 180 to grow in. This just gives me some inspiration.

    Thank you guys for the extremely kind words. As some you you know, I have an extremely long thread in the Large tank forum on RC. I will work on posting some more eye candy moving forward. I really appreciate feedback and please do not hesitate to ask me questions and/or give me suggestions. That is the only way I/we can learn. Thanks again :)

    WOW! Looking great Mark, especially the last one ;)

    Whatever came of that A. austera you bought from Mingwei? I still have the frag you gave me and it looks identical to a larger colony that I have.

    Jeremy, its still around. I had one similar as well so its in my frag tank. Its a cool piece with lower nutrients. I passed a piece to Tim (tfp) and Doug (dots).

    What's your orginal name for that piece? Bloodredrash chalice or something like that :)
