Absolutely gorgeous!

In walls are beautiful, but I can imagine the temp. issues you have to deal with have troubled some in the past. It would here in the summer as well.

How old is that orange cap.?

Very Nice! looks like you are in need for a bigger tank already ;)

Very nice! I like stories when people go from a small simple 75 to a huge elaborate tank with every bell and whistle :)

Amazing tank! I live in houston too!! could not help but think "some day" ... i would be happy to purchase some of those frags from ya... cause i can not find any monti or digtita around anywhere? :)

Very impressive tank. Just when I thought I was getting somewhere in this hobby, I am reminded how far it can go.;) Did you have any issues getting the zoos to grow on the sidewalls?

rorchilles 08/05/2007 07:10 PM

hot tank

Absolute Reef 08/05/2007 07:55 PM

I've seen a lot of "stuffed" sps dominated tanks in RC every now and then. I personally do not like them that much....because they don't look so natural to me. It bugs me a lot just to look at them...there's no room to breathhhh...argh!

This one, on the other hand, well stuffed, well managed, well decorated, well done !!
Amazing aquascaping..I would say. Truely artistic + aquatic approach at its best !!!

Congrats !! I just love your tank very much :D

Gorgeous tank!! Absolutely amazing!! Love the colors and the growth!

Any problems with your purple bullying your other tangs?

Keep up the good work!

fischraze, CONGRATULATIONS!! Anytime someone asks about tanks in Houston, yours is the one I tell people to go and see. You've came a long way and am also glad you stuck around. We need to have an after party at your place to celebrate! :) :)

fishcraze2002 08/05/2007 08:17 PM

Thanks everyone for the compliments!!!
This TOTM is an important milestone for my tank... Now I can start planning on the next steps - maybe some major changes:)

haha I really want a rimless tank after I see your new tank. but to change out the current tank will be a MAJOR work:D

invincible569 08/05/2007 08:29 PM

Well if you decide to have a party, dont forget to invite me. ;) Honeslty, its so much easier with my rimless. I cant believe all the work I went through with my in wall. You could do it like me and have the tank outside of the wall and keep the sump in the garage. But anyways, we will talk about that more later. Lets enjoy your current setup. :)

the cap was started from a $10, 1.5" frag from a local reefer in 2003. I still remember those details since it was one of my first few SPS frags:D

congrats, tank has amazing growth.

here you go :)

I'm surprised that people still be able to find that thread after 3 or 4 years and I didn't try to bump it:)
