    Thank you to everyone for your comments and suggestions. If it was'nt for this club and its various members .....this build would not have been possible.

    Nice build. What is the egg crate on the bottom for? Does it protect the rocks from punching through the bottom?

    You got it. If some rock shifted for what ever reason. Hopefully the eggcrate will do better than rock hitting glass.

    Clam's definitely out of proportion. I think to make it look better you should remove it, and give it to me.

    It's nice to see a tank that has room for corals to grow big instead of cramming rock into every square inch possible :)

    Agreed Jeremy, although it doesn't take too long for those corals to fill in all that space!! :D

    Given what I've seen historically I predict a veritable thicket of branching acros in 24 months!

    update on tank.......parameters are dialed in and stable.....all coral/fish are doing great..........just need to clear off sand bed of frags and such ( I'm feeling an abundance of DBTC's coming for DEC meeting ) :)

    That tank turned out really nice! Good job. I like the open feel and the Clam is fantastic.
