A reef tank huh... I love reef tanks, I'm a huge fan of hermit crabs and shrimp, things like that... Halides are awesome, on freshwater planted tanks you use them over and open top tank and it gives a super nice shimmer. I don't have one, but I've seen them. heh
The tank is a size/shape I haven't seen before, super thick glass, super thick glass support (I just remembered that, eek. that might be a badger to get around in the project), black silicone... it's 3' long, 18" deep and 24" tall.
This evening I brought in the false floor that was made for me years ago along with a silicone/pebble streambed that I may or may not use... also brought in a rather large manzinita burl type object... I tossed the false floor in my empty 40g breeder to check the size and there was a lot of open space left over, I'm contemplating islands in there also to use up space and add more land plus using wood they can climb on.
I need to get working on moving my gecko so I can wiggle items around in the actual tank and see how it goes. heh

But that wont be for another couple months..i have to many hobbies most of it goes into my reef tank :P..i just bought 2 new lumen max 3 metal halide lights with their new blue wave 7 dual ballast for 600 so no palu for awhile! is it a 65T? that would be really nice for it actually. I hope to use my 50g breeder. I love making backgrounds out of of GS foam..it is a bit of work but it really looks nice after. I would go with a background or try the epiweb and grow moss on it! well w/e you do keep us updated :wink:
