Very nice.  Do you have any close up shots?

Also, try copying the IMG tag and your image will appear in the post so you don't have to click on a link.

Very nice Matt.  How long have you had the tank?  Do you want to give us more info on your build?

Are there any corals on your hit list? You have some full looking frag racks there, maybe there could be some trading to be had with others.... I don't have a ton to offer just now except a small ORA Pearl Berry and yellow mille (might be postrada), both are under 1". I could clip a nice 1" (maybe a bit more) off my green Abrolohensis as well. I really want something purple that's not a tricolor, more like a Bonsai, if you have it.

I like those dimensions, wide but not tall.  What kind of lights are you running?  What brand is the tank?

Looking for ora Cali tort, and ora German blue polyp acro. Always up fo anything unique and colorful that I don't have. Let me know what you have to trade, I have lots of blues and purples.
