    I thought it would be fun to do a photo article to inspire beginners. Show me your before and after shots. After is defined as anytime you think the tank looks good.

    Be sure and include A) the size of the display tank and B) how old it was when the before shot was taken and how old it was when the after shot was taken.

    Ready, set, go!!

    THANKS

    In June 2018 I upgraded form a 56 gallon column tank my son had given me to a 75 gallon Marineland. I started the 56 gallon in March 2018.

    Fast forward after being a R2R member for 2 years and a lot of reading and a lone trip to the WWC store in Orlando (blew my mind).

    The rock structures do not touch the glass.
    I have to make sure the GSP does not grow over the teeth in the overflow.
