Awesome tank! I believe it looks like this even after he went away on business for a few weeks too. Great work and nice inspiration.

Thank you all. Good to know you like my tank.

For bobbravo2.... It was a DIY alkalinity monitoring tool to start with, and only built for 12 close friends include me, but the owner may plan to commercialize it, so I prefer not to discuss all detail here, even I am absolute not involve to his new plan ;-)

I will share a link (which I can't find it yet) that you can dig detail yourself.



cheers,

shih87

Talking

Man, seeing these tanks makes me so damn excited to finally get into the hobby. I know that it will take a lot of time and practice to be able to get a tank that good looking, but looking forward to it. Going to start small, I just hope that I can afford to make a tank that beautiful in the future.

Thanks all.

Yes, I run pure Zeovit system, and the additives tanks were custom made by using acrylic.
