    Every time I wipe down the acrylic I knock chunks off of everything. I'm in bonsai mode now, pruning the colonies into pretty shapes so they don't overshadow others

    The tank is officially coming down. Had a messy alk swing that upset the balance and the wife and I are moving across the Bay. Got everything back on track, but too scared to try and move it all so close to the alk swing. Glad I was able to share pics with everyone. Here are the last few shots. Going out with a bang. Should have something new set up within the year. Time for a fresh start.

    Hey also I kno u have some pretty sick shrooms. I get people hitting me up weekly about selling my shrooms but I don't have much for sale lately. So if u want me to send out some feelers for you I'm more than happy to help u unload some of your brotha man. They mostly local reefers so no shipping hassles ;)

    Eventually. I just can't handle moving it again and worrying about a second swing that wipes out what's left. When I do set up another tank I'm going with a bilevel set-up. Starting 100% from scratch

    When you say bilevel do you mean like a drop off style tank?
