Took a few new pics, now if everything would just grow faster

I never liked LPS that much, but I think that's because the selection was horrible in washington state, I've sure gotten some nice pieces lately.

My favorites, the yellow torch from Pisces pet, and the orange plates from Cappuccino Bay..

I kept detailed specs of the tank, I did stop keeping track once the tank was up, the only major change was, I swapped out the octopus 3000 for a neptune aquacontroller.

Nice looking tank so far.

And thats basically what I spent on my 58 in-wall setup. I guess that $5,000 figure is a magic number when building a complete reef setup that has all the latest gadgets.

I could have gone up to a 180g without it costing much more at all, just more rock & sand, the rest would handle it.

I probably will do this, but not until the tank is fully grown out.
