How many gallons is that DT? I might have missed it!
The tank’s 50 gallons 36”x18”x18” standard dimensions but the tideline model it was custom order build by planet aquarium in Arlington, Tx. (which the tideline is the current ghost/external overflow since the old flat panels with glass external all started cracking flooded a lot of houses nice ones at that it was only the large one like over 120 gallon and truly I didn’t care I tried to get them to make me one! I ordered it with starfire and I had them use way thicker glass and drill the back for the return they usually wouldn’t got that far custom bc it’s just not worth their time, but they agreed they did it originally told me 2 weeks they lost order for twice. I paid a pirce tag of $850 apparently the cost of materials and labor, because I don’t know what they do now during the time I ordered my tank to order precut glass. The machines tha cut glass like for the aquarium trade are sper expensive. They made a elaborate story as to how supplier basically had a disagreement and didn’t want to do small cuts for my tank the finally hugged it out I guess. I really wish I had done regular glass or they called to offered instead of just dicking around since the guy was being a ****. The starfire is soft and scratches so easily I gingerly more my magnet around even pad will damage if you get going to hard. The tanks no where near big enough to even notice or be able appreciate it. I just got obsessive when It came to this build I learned my lesson. I’m Chill ** I don’t freak out or get mad after 2 month mark with my money tied up I was like it better be dang beautiful or come with a discount or something. It didn’t I was kinda life ****** I had been waiting for like 6 months before I put the order through I was already couldn’t wait. Consider I could’ve ordered a 54 or 45 gallon planet crystaline and has the next day for $200 I felt jaded it took 3 months. In the end It all worked out it’s beautiful and scratches so easy lol. It the nicest tank I’ve ever had! With the sump it’s with rocks sand it’s holds a net volume of 55 gallons on the dot. I measured it with a 5 gallon jug when I filled it out of curiosity. I hard plumbed it all sexy like and stayed up for 2 days straight get the apex, plumbing, electrical, and transfer of livestock done I was soo geeked even though I do this for a living. Last picture is 14 or 15 months ago a few weeks after I the livestock when in.

Success and achievement is always followed at some point afterwards by failure. In this case my ro failed purely due my own negligence. Resulting a total disaster that’s what I’m working on today .

It was a rough few days with the R/O problem (fixed now), and with w/c’s along with matrix carbon we back on track. Lost a few soldiers, but on otherhand exceptional progress in corals the bugs hit hardest very happy! Color overall is improved since I raised the light 2” where was previously lol.

WD getting is pink back!

This a BC Rainbow loom impossible to get a decent picture there’s bright color all around my camera won’t focus and it’s under tricolor lol. Has made big improvements colorwise I can actually show y’all a picture.

Pc rainbow is one my favorite’s. I know it maybe seem rough. PE was replaced constant filaments like crazy for the past 4 months. Color coming back > new growth :)

My Pink Cadillac’s was decimated by bug in a mater of a two week period. I only have this one it been recovering since treatments. It looked worse a few weeks ago if you can believe that lol. I wasn’t exuding confidence in likelyhood to survive. This was Last week.

Several more color improvements

Pinky the bear really more pink in person I love pink acro’s. I’m thoroughly impressed it’s managed to win the war with setosa. It’s also surround loud colored coral so it’s hard to get a of picture!

BC Backdraft the movie table. The definition in the different colors is significant I can capture it without top downs now.

The bugs also like this one definitely honorable mentioning terms of recovery, it didn’t do much of anything no signs of life totally dormant, but will tolerate being infested for eternity.This is one I get excited about I don’t know why. When I saw good PE, color, and growth I got lit **.

Beautiful tank, glad most everything is coming back!
Thank you! I am as well they’ve been through more than I ever thought possible. Definitely makes me appreciate them more. I’m letting everyone get close to 100% beforehand. I’m impatiently waiting to minimalizing/separating the aquascape to better place and display them.

BC Adam Bomb hands down the hardest coral snap a picture of, and tops downs it is. Seriously that pink without LEDs. Straight raw photo

I don’t mind the blue too much! Looks good
Somethings definitely “daylight” corals
and other total “blue light” corals I have a
50/50 mix. I think it’s just fun to see what blue light and over saturation can do. I could work for Vivid ;)

BC Raindow loom!! I actually did it the impossible. I had one blue plus and coral plus with led bar on low. I managed to cast warm light on it getting a half/half picture. This is what it looks like in person with a slightly more yellow undertone.

I think it definitely came from reef raft lol. Still in recovery pretty much was literally dead from the black bugs picture was just for fun. I spent like two hours torturing myself to get as perfect as possible I hope someone else understands my humor :D .
