Thank you.. the tank is actually painted white on the underside... do a search tho there is a plastic place that custom cuts the starboard the size you need..

How is that macro algae holding up? and where did you get it? I am running a scrubber so mine might die out through starvation but I want to give it a try because it looks so good!

First of all the pictures on this thread aren't with heavy blues.. they are with 4 t5 bulbs and some blue LED.. t5 is significantly better than LED for photos...

But have you tried switching to pro mode and changing the white balance? Makes a huge difference

I really like the White. I wish I could paint my black stand white, but it's a little too late for that. I also like the sandless bottom.

Please Plase Please

I am about to stock my tank re-start and I like what you have picked for yours very much!

This may be a big ask but could you please list the pieces that you have and where you got them so I can look them up? You may not know the specific names of them all but could you tell me what you asked for to get them?

Sorry, just saw this post... by pieces you mean corals or fish or equipment or something else?
