Beautiful tank. It's inspiring me to upgrade from my 180, I have an opportunity to buy a 240 with stand at an excellent price. Just need to convince my wife.

Nice job!

Thanks Scott. Yeah, I couldnít be happier with my choice in dimensions. The depth of 30Ē makes a huge difference & id never go less. The 27Ē height is a great balance between looks & maintenance ease. Hopefully youíre able to convince your wife to upgrade

Reefrf's 250 upgrade!

Doing some rearranging of some corals that have begun to shade others. Some corals will actually get some light now!

Update: lost my female Picasso clown after 11 years. Pretty sad. Not sure why she died as she was fat & no other signs of illness.

Picked this pair up soon after. My wife has always love these hybrids. Pretty cute donít you think?

What a great tank! How do you get a clean background like that. Do you clean it manually with a scraper?

Thank you. I guess the power of photo editing. A friend at Reef Crest photography took the photo. All else in the photo is an accurate representation.
