I'm such a huge fan of this tank. I love the sloped substrate and the tall cork going all the way to the surface, but by far the most remarkable accomplishment with this tank is the color. I've seen beautiful reef tanks that didn't have this much color. You ought to show this thing off to some reefers and see how colorful us "freshies" can get.

Everytime I look at this tank I gotta wipe the drool off of my bottom lip. It really is amazing how much you've accomplished in such a short period of time. What the hell are you gonna do for an encore? 8)

I've got my new background for my PC.

Amazing color. I'm lucky to have just green in my tanks.

I don't know that there is supposed to be an encore....
I just sit back and thank God that he has seen fit to allow me to do this much.


As for backgrounds, if you go to my website and check the journal, you can download any of the fullsize picks just by changing the '_small.jpg' on the end to '_large.jpg'

I have my pics hosted on my webspace at Hoftiezer.Net

I then add the following code into the posting;

{img}http://www.hoftiezer.net/personal/aquaria/images/20030719_front_01_small.jpg{/img}

Replace the '{' with '[' for the code to display the picture. The key is to have an internet address where you can upload your pictures to, then create the link to the picture as above. If you usel 'url' it will display the link. If you use 'img' it will display the picture at the end of the link.

On this board you can also add the picture as an attachment. Since I have webspace I don't use this. I believe there are limitations in size. When posting a reply or creating a topic, just click on the 'add attachemnt' at the bottom of the page and follow the directions.

If you need webspace of your own, there is a link to my provider on my home page (www.Hoftiezer.Net). I fyou use the link to purchase webspace you will help me out on my bill.

It is an absolutely gordeous tank. I still can't believe that it was your first attempt. I don't think any attempts of mine will ever amount to that!

How do you like my new wallpaper?
