Really? Never had one crack. Good to know
Odds are you won't (In older houses anyway), but in new framing in new builds as things settle out and twist fiber tape over sheet seams will crack eventually. It's the same reason spray in foam insulation is an absolutely horrible idea in new builds. Sometimes the older ways are just better :)

There's a guy in our local reefing forum that's on R2R here too; I'll link his thread, absolutely beautiful 12 long he has at work.
I didn't know they existed until I joined that forum couple years ago, what an amazing footprint and layout for such a small water volume.

Ah. I have never used it in a new construction. Thanks for the education!

Good morning. Working on a wish list for the coral expo. I'll be so overwhelmed, I'll forget what I'm looking for.
