Still undecided till the final vote is tallied, but right now leaning towards Lou. Sorry Aquaman Shalom but when yours grows in more I may change my tune.

Lets go! Here is the 1st photo from the front panel view of the tank. I ended up going with an Aqua Illuminations Prime for the light with gooseneck arm. I also added the @Vivid Creative Aquatics -VCA Random Flow Generator® Nozzle to help randomize the flow.

Ok so here are Aquaman Shalom of Eshopps' starting photos! I posted exactly what was sent to me!

Hey everyone, Lou here. Thank you all for the support and the love!! Unfortunately I have to repost a casualty this week. I lost one of my favorite corals, this amazing rainbow torch coral. I am not sure what happened but goes to show that even the most experienced of reefers have set backs. I am definitely feeling bummed out about it!
