Phil - it's already totally drilled (8-10 holes). My 180 I mean.

If you are referring to my concept tank, I really want to do a proof of concept. But even a small scale version would cost $15-20K...

Hey Phil. Thanks for those shots! What you are showing in the first shot is almost certainly a clear acrylic internal overflow box, with three drain pipes. Between having three pipes, and one being...

Ohhh... and most of my aquarium time lately has been going into my little reef tank. Trying to finally finish that off. Recently made a new DIY LED fixture for it that's working pretty well. Here's a...

The Tefe Greens are in the tank at last! And BOY do they look great! :proud:

For now they are adjusting to their new home, so pic opportunities will be a bit sporadic. They're doing that "I'm...

There's quite a few Brit's on Simply Discus. I'd go ask them where they get Praziquantel, or what they use instead.

I hear you on the reef tank! I shudder to think about fish and meds in a reef...

I HATE taking tank pics. They never come out right for me. They are blurry, or have the wrong exposure, or funky colors. So here's some more of the same.

I took some shots in the daytime, so there...

Yeah, but he had the jump on me with the Green Tefe's. And I'm OK with that, except that it looks like I'm copying something. But that's OK. The original Kahuna was greatly influenced by Jeff. As I...

Thanks Digsy. :)

I'm not sure how many rummies are left. Far fewer than I bought - that's for certain! I'll have to take a pic as I feed them to know for sure, but I'm estimating 40. 50 tops.
