Well...If you wanted to double the size I saw a nice new 240 that is in Michigan. If I knew the future and what house I was buying in summer I'd say that I might buy my own Christmas present. Would make a great peninsula:

Clearly your green and red monti caps are doing spectacular. Have they always been this close to the bottom? I have two, and they are getting rather large, and was afraid to move them down. How long have they been there and are you getting good growth with them? Your tank is spectacular, and I also admire your aquascaping skills. You are an inspiration for my next setup when we build our house next year!

thanks for the compliment tiffyreefer!!!

I've had those monti near the bottom of the tank for almost a year, from the time I've acquired them as frags no larger that a 1" frag plug. Overall they are doing well, but that green cap is actually a purple rim from the original owner, when I placed my frag near the bottom I lost that aspect of the monti.

Keep us posted in your next build thread!!!! if I may give you one advice with my setup make sure that you go with at least a 24" wide tank, frags grow a lot faster that what people think!!!!

thats correct I only used acrylic rods. I was going to use some 2 part epoxy as well but the acrylic seems to be more that enough.

Thanks reeflover7826!!!

Currently am using 2 aquamedic pendant with 250W Phoenix bulb and supplementing it with T5 KZ superblue. I've just played around with other bulbs and found that the is the "brightest" as far as am concern. sorry I currently dont have any photos of the light fixture.
