Idol Tanks

So...I, as most people, have an Idol Tank. A tank that give you insperation to better your own. In this thread, go ahead and post a picture of the SPS DOMINATED Tank that has inspired you the most, and if possible, state the name of the owner.

Here's mine


Unfotunantly, I don't know the Name of the Owner.

Joe Kelley's tank I think will always remain my all time favorite. Everything grown from small frags. The far right end of the tank is cut off in this photo, he had a few large colonies there as well...:


...And of course Yasuhiro's tank:

That's an awesome tank in the first photo, their all sweet tanks.
You might want to change the title to IDOL and not IDLE.

Joe Kelley was definitely one of my favorites as well. I liked the use of sea grass.

Before he took down the tank, the sea grasses had reached almost up to the water surface. He had a nice variety as well. I'm going to send Joe an email and see what he's been up to. Last I remember, he said something about wanting to set up a small cube tank...
