    This is long overdue but I figured I should finally put a thread together showing my 93 cube build. I wanted to utilize a space in my living room that otherwise wasn't being used. I wanted to house the tank and all the equipment so it was out of sight. I built two storage compartments that also double as seats on both sides of the tank for easy viewing. I have had many tanks in the past and with this build I decided I wanted a minimal approach and I wanted the tank to primarily be SPS with a high focus on acros.

    Thanks! I have many more photos to add as the tank is a solid 1.5 years grown in now. Stay posted for additional photos.

    As the tank settled in I started my search for the most colorful sps corals I could find. This go around I decided I was going to dedicate myself to keeping great water quality with weekly water changes to keep the acros healthy and thriving.

    That's amazing. Great scape and balance between open swimming and rock work. It really has filled in. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks that's the route I was trying to go. After his weekend the fish will have a little more room to swim. I'm fragging/ removing a couple colonies to make room for some new frags.

    What do you have in the two side compartments? Really like how you set that up.

    I have my gfo/carbon reactor, controllers, and batter back up in one. The other I have my ato container in the other. I also keep test kits and all the other misc. items I try to keep out of site.

    Took a couple pictures of the tank tonight. Made some space on the upper left of the tank for a new shelf to grow out some new frags coming from TCK next week.
