That tank is beautiful. Tangs do, howevr, prefer long tanks to swim at high speeds.
One lap in my tank is over 3 meters and then its no stopping so the speed limit in my tank is way higher than most tanks.

Thanx everyone !!!!

OK I have to ask. How do you clean the glass? Am I thinking right that this is 3' deep?

The tank is realy nice by the way. :thumbup:

Thanx guys !!!!

Here´s a pic of an arrowheadcrab I introduced in the tank about a month ago. He´s really a nice addition has not touched any of my corals and fish. It looks really nice when he carfully walkes over my biggest euphyllia Yajamensis without disturbing it. Tomorrow I get a new gem piece to my tank a new favia red and green.

Thanx again.
