Congratulations, valentina! Beautiful tank, thanks for sharing

There's a lady I've known forever. She's taken ill as of late.
On top of that, she's being abused by those to whom she has given everything... Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides. Just breaks my heart. Maybe, if we join together, we can help her heal.
She's well over 230 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is 'America'... And I love her and I have always been proud of her.

Current Tank Info: 220 gal reef with 200+ gals of sump and refugium.
