    Thanks Matt!

    Thanks the other Matt :wink:

    It looks even better in person. Just like corals, pictures make it hard to get the real feel of the colors!! It looks crazy in person. I don't even have LEDs on it yet either.

    That was the idea. I wanted it to look like one piece, but be able to remove it and clean it! It turned out great!!

    Shawn, that's why the design phase is so important. I like tight tolerances :xd:. I should have yours redesigned here soon!

    Shawn, it was better than we could have ever imagined! Awesome response to our ghost overflow. We took MACNA by storm.... Lots of videos and blogs coming from the top in the industry.

    Rick it was truly a great show, loved seeing your work there and of course its been a little wait but finally seeing the "Ghost" that you guys help create with Felix (Reef Savvy) and will soon be shipping us has been worth the wait. I love the accessibility to the ghost part and look forward to getting mine with extra ghost grate so we can switch them out for cleaning. We showed our video on it too and we are so please and excited to use it. I will attach the link.

    Quick phone pic. Put up a sheet of plywood that is primed and painted behind the sump to hide pipes and wires.Getting the sump plumbed. Added 2 - 70mm fans to help remove moisture in the sump area.
