-I realy like your concept thought , maybe make my porch winterproof

One thing crossed my mind though , won't the local cats or other animals want to do some fishing ?

Acro Al, fitting name for a beautiful outdoor tank, wish you were closer, I would love some of your frags. So are supplies and corals in australia cheaper since there are so many reefs nearby and nations that export them readily? Definitely a WOW factor!

thanks borg, papdt, bax and ptr13.

Thats the old storage tub for my stock (I have an online commercial operation)

Ha, well some corals are cheap, but due to the USA paying silly amounts for acans and scollys, it drove the local price up. Even the licensed collectors are in on it calling things names like toxic and strawberry shortcake, and charging more...

Fantastic mate!
A true top-tier system. Absolutely beautiful. Inspiring!
The sequence of the copperband trying to line up a snack and then getting flushed out was amazing.
