Latest Picture:
(Due to Photobucket arbitrarily setting the default upload size to 800x600 sometime recently I have been uploading most of my large 2mpixel pics at 800x600 resolution. Its a wonder they show any detail at all with all that jpeg "lossy" compression) Hmmph...

Whats funny is that you'd never know I was an astrophotographer based on my fish tank pictures. I've taken crystal clear images of Saturn at 8AU from Earth but I can't seem to take a picture of a fish tank sitting 4 feet in front of me.

Dawn and Dusk lighting compliments of Menards. (Combilight 20W Halogen 3 packs for $9.99!! ) It looks so cool in person.

Very cool tank, I've never seen a cube that size. Great Saturn pic too, I saw the rings once through a big reflector in space tech class back in high school, it is a truly unbelievable thing to see in person.

Side view, They're all the rage these days afterall.



This gives you more of an idea of the size of the cube.

I'm really jealous of your extra large cube! I'm not sure if I missed this somewhere but, did you buy this at an LFS somewhere or did you have it custom made?

It's looking great so far!

The cube was purchased from a factory direct type of place in Detroit. Great Lakes Aquariums is the name of the place. The cost was $69.99. Yes that is the correct price, that is not a typo. They are not an ADA class tank where the silicone is perfect but they make normal sized tanks and even some hard to find sizes on the spot for a customer at ultra reasonable prices.
