Well I'll be sure to follow you so I can start shopping when my tank is ready. Notice I say tank is ready, cause I am about ready right now, even without a tank ha ha ha ha
Your service is greatly appreciated!

My father and father in law were both army men, and my brother in law is a navy boy.

I'll have frags whenever you're ready no rush =)

Well, since you OBVIOUSLY have a tank that is doing alright, gonna ask for your opinion (not trying to hijack your thread). But I am looking at building an AIO here in a month when I am home for R&R. having questions on my back chamber / sump. Mind taking a quick look at the following thread and tell me what you think of the 2nd design? Already tracking the 1st one is a NO GO.

The back chamber will be 30x30x24.

Sump Design

And yeah pops and younger brother are Army fellas too. And I think my son has plans on joining the Air Force.

Here is the tank as it currently sits today on 4-8-2016!

I love your corals collection. I wonder where do you get most of your SPS or better yet, if you're going to frag some of them in the future. BTW I love the look of your FTS and pictures of your corals.

Thank you for sharing.

This tank is OUT OF CONTROL!

It must be so nice to come home to something that looks like that and what about guests? They marvel at my tank, they must lose their minds when they see yours!!
