    Volitan,

    You don't give yourself enough credit...
    Your tank looks better than many I've seen (or had)...

    ...and you're not the only one who has his xmas tree up... My wife put our mini-tree up today as well...

    sorry jonny.. but our xmass tree is up too..wife and I put it up today.

    whats the joke about that tank? Looks fine to me.. and I bet there is more life in yours then in mine.. my last heat problem wiped out just about everything except shrooms.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Derik .. The only thing that strikes me as odd is the size of the canopy but I know you have a lot of light in that thing. The tank looks good. Looks great if anyone takes into account how QUICKLY you had to make this switch off from your big tank.

    Hey guys,
    Derik, are you trying to compensate for somethin with that big top? haha, nah I was there today guys, he's got a sweet cooling system on that baby and some crazy lighting (in the other post), it may be big but no chance of overheating , thats fursure! The tank is great too, I must say I love that ripple effect! I don't know if you guys can see but he's got a ship wreck in there that actually suits real well, usually I don't much like that kinda stuf, but its actually looks really awesome in there! Well thats about it, don't worry Derik Soon we'll be trying to work out the plumbing on that 600gallon for you anyway!

    Have a good work trip!, give me call if you have any probs with the tank while your gone.
