Good progress, the tank looks good. Where did you get the actual tank? Looks a lot like the one's Amano uses.

Looking good. Gotta love those lilly pipes, they look great. Looking forward to seeing the 'final look'.

If you look at the web site in his signature you can find out more about the tank.

The tank has a really refreshing look to it. I like the no background look, I recently removed mine also.

That tank is fabulous, I'd love to replace my standard 20 gallon tank with one of those. What I didn't see mentioned was how much does a 20 gallon starfire glass tank with those parameters cost? The clarity of that glass is really amazing. As soon as I saw it, I was thinking, Uh oh as soon as he starts scraping algae, he is gonna scratch that acrylic.

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.

This is the info on the tank,
https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ght=amano+tank

From what I hear, All-glass aquariums are coming out with a low iron glass tank line in 2005. Remove the trim and you'd be all set, for much less.

Thanks for the comments.

Can you imagine how much a 150 gallon tank like this would run?? It's enought to baffle the mind. Nice tank though - really like the look

Very nice looking tank, how do you clean it without scratching it?

It's starphire glass, not acrylic. No scratches.

Yeah, starphire is not cheap. This is my dream tank, and I have been planning it for awhile. Oceanic wanted twice as much to build the same tank.

Starfire

You definately are driving the pimped out, shiny rimmed, music thumping, moneymobile of the fish tank world. The rest of us can only look on with envy and hope that maybe you will decide you need a bigger starfire tank and sell us your old one for $50.
