The front windows are 3 inch thick acrylic . I have to say they was the worst part of doing this tank . it was 90 degrees and 90 percent humidity that day .

That is the rock that was on the island , they would not let us import rock at all so we had to make due . the owner did all of the rock work and in the end it was one of the best tanks I have ever seen . these pictures are from a year ago , I cant find the new ones I have but will take more on my next trip down . we usually go down every two months to work on various projects ion the island .

we have also got rid of all of the leds we had on this tank as they were not growing coral well and would fail a lot .I had the same problem on my tank and tossed 13k worth of leds and went back to halides .

This is a big tank in Switzerland that we are building all of the filtration for . the original contractor screwed it up so bad that the tank did not hold water and it all had to be redone .
