    Fantastic set up and beautiful corals Durwin! I love how you made the sump out of cardboard first. What a great idea! :)

    Wow! I wish I had those kinds of DIY skills! Very nice, very clean!

    Noticed the mixer behind the ATB, your other hobby? Mine as well.

    Wow, what a professional job, all the way around! I like your lighting setup, that's some serious PAR and color pop. It's a 1st rate setup.
  13. Really great looking tank :O

    Mike.....I did some audio production/remixing work when I was younger. What kind of audio work do you do?

    I've been playing keyboards since I was a young lad. My musical style is somewhere between Keith Jarrett and world music with some classical thrown in for fun. I just sequence my own music for kicks. With my current setup I'm using a Duo - Quad Core Mac Pro with 10GB of RAM running Logic Pro. I was using a Digi002 but found Pro Tools to have latency issues with my large plug-ins from EWQL. After making the switch to Logic Pro I now port everything through a Lynx Aurora 8 AD/DA converter and don't have those kinds of problems anymore. My next goal is to eventually set up a nice sized tank, film it, and put music to it. I did this with my current 28G tank in this thread:

    But I only spent about an hour putting together the music as I wanted to see what the video would actually look like on Youtube and was a bit impatient.

    Sorry for the drift into another hobby...Back to your Tank and Stand, which looks really good.
