    So..... yeah, It's no secret. My forum's been painfully quiet for months now.

    Many of you, regrettably neglected far beyond my threshold of acceptance. It's been nothing short of impossible to keep up with everything the last 8 months and I sincerely apologize to all those I've neglected, shorthanded and possibly abandoned. And here, I'm living and operating a business inside of an absolute and literal disaster. And you want pics of your coral? HA! Good luck with that one...

    Believe me, I do not find this acceptable in any way.

    But all for the greater good my friends.


    Here's what I've been up to in my scattered and manic
    absence.

    • Six glass tanks: 11' x 48" x 12"

    • Four glass tanks: 7' x 30" x 12"

    • Two Giant Sumps


    • One Giant GEO

    • A few thousand of watts of light

    • About 12 tons of water

    • One 900+ sq foot state of the art, reinforced, dedicated SPS grow out and quarantine facility

    I think it's going to be a good year here at Battle Central!


    You guys want to see a build thread or what?

    Very cool. Is it all built or are you still in the process? At first I thought it said 11 inch and 7 inch tanks and I didn't see how useful that would be.
