Here is my favorite tank in Cape Town, South Africa. The tank had crashed(well he say, everything just looks a little less vibrant) resently.
Enjoy






How it started out in 06


and the engine



Hope you liked the pics!

Hargitai thanks for the compliment.

The system has been up a little over a year now. The 220 was an upgrade from a 90 gal after I decided to do an in-wall tank and convert a spare bedroom to house all of the equipment. The 220 is plumbed to a 100 gal rubbermaid common sump shared with the frag tank and the refugium. The frag tank is a 50 gal rubbermaid but I have ordered a 48 x 24 x 12 glass tank to replace it. I also have a seperate 75 gal system (not pictured) used to house softies and to QT. I love this hobby and spend a great amount of time down in the fish room. It is such a stress reliever after a hard day at work.
