The simplistic look is jaw dropping to me, love all that you did. This is an inspiration to me as I am upgrading from a 60g cube to a 120g 48x24x24.

Hi guys thank you all for the compliments they are much appreciated. It's also good to hear of a few more people wanting to setup cube's, they are such a fun tank to work with

Thanks again Scott

Congratulations, you should be very proud of the stunning display you've created and kept thriving Scott. I think i'll have a lash at a cube too after seeing the fantastic depth of field you've created.

Thank you very much biggles. That was one of the things that drew me to the cube was being able to create the depth of field if done correctly. Give a cube a go mate they are a lot of fun

Thanks again

Thank you very much but I can't take credit for the video or the pics they were done by a good friend of mine and he's done an excellent job, I was very happy with everything he did

Hi Stewart
These are actually called Christmas tree worms (Spirobranchus giganteus). It comes into LFS around Australia as Christmas tree rock if you keep an eye out you should be able to come across it

Amazing tank.

I don't understand why when the new TOTM comes out we don't sticky it and remove the old one...
