    Beautiful setup man.

    I think 9 Radions IS a bit of overkill if you were to run them all at the same brightness, but the beauty is you can configure them however you want so that you can alternate your spectrum on each.

    Can't wait to see it all completed.

    I'm extremely impressed. Obviously a ton of thought and planning has gone into this setup and I hope to one day do a large tank half this well. Following.

    Yeah, that was what I was thinking. But you could also have 5 on full spectrum and then the other 4 to just the blue spectrum, or something along those lines. Having this many will definitely give you some cool sunrise/sunset effects if you decide to enable that function.

    I am terrible at scaping as well. I keep sketching out options for my new build to hopefully end up with a better scape this time. It hasn't worked yet.

    Love what you have going on with this build. As the others have said, it looks very well thought out and it looks so nice and clean. Your skimmer stand looks awesome! So sturdy.

    Many thanks my friend!, The stand was the first time i worked in acrylic and it was so easy just used aceton to weld it and polish edges with a torch
    so will play little more with it, acrylic is crazy expensive here i would love to have a acrylic tank don't have to be so afraid for scratches

    The polishing looks sweet.

    I can't imagine what crazy expensive would translate to! It already isn't cheap here. For the simple sake of moving the thing I'd much rather my 300 be an acrylic tank, too.

    ...that and the eye pleasing attention to details and huge emphasis on aesthetics.

    Put "back to nature" back panels on bottom tank to protect the glas and also looks nice then sand get blown off
    have used em in 3 tanks before and like the looks after the tank have run in but 99% will the covered with sand IMG_5064.jpg IMG_5065.JPG

    Wow :) that is going to be incredible. Great looking build. How deep do you plan to have your sand on the panels?
