    Yummy! My youngest flew over your area with her connecting flight on the way to Hawaii and took pictures. She said it was the most beautiful she has ever seen :) She is still young but I have to agree her view was absolutely stunning! Although I have a sister in the state of Washington, I have never seen the Pacific Coast or the mountains in Person. I imagine seeing with your own eyes is just breathtaking :D Maybe someday.

    Hi Todd! I haven't pestered you in a while about the new build so here it comes! Have you started it yet? What's happening in your salty world? :D

    I just made it through the 24 pages on this thread and all I can say is simply INCREDIBLE. Todd, you have an absolutely gorgeous display. Even your photography (with a camera phone no less) is outstanding. I've been dabbling in this hobby for about a decade now, from a 10G starter to my current 150G and nothing I've ever done even remotely comes close to the beautiful piece of the ocean you have in your home. It's probably for the best, however, since I would likely want to do nothing but sit and stare at that every moment I had. Congrats on all your hard work and effort you've put into this masterpiece, and thank you for sharing it!

    IMG_20151206_120545586_HDR.jpg Long long long overdue update..... I'll post up a new Build Thread in the next few days.

    Just over two years ago I fabricated a new acrylic 187g (60"×24"×30") as a seam in my old 125g was starting to fail. I just replaced the aquarium as had to much time and money invested in building the furniture etc... with a few upgrades of course

    Wow!

    People may start confusing you with Revtree for going that long without posting pictures of your tank, but it was worth the wait! :p

    With the Doors tune "The End" playing in my head here's the last FTS of the old 125g taken November of 2015. Hard to believe that I had stuffed so much Coral in there
