Puppy this is the soort of tank one sees on Reef Central and drools over. A stunning tank as so a very deserved prize winner.

This is a truly breathtaking tank.

The aquascaping is creative and well thought-out and clearly the husbandry is tops.

Brilliant job David.:thumbup:

Having read the whole article, I have one serious worry.

Your reefkeeping skills are clearly way above reproach, but I feel that you have fallen into a typically South African trap. A mistake we all seem to make.

A 10mm thick 900mm high tank across 1500mm wide is in my opinion 100% sure to break in time, and that would be a great tragedy for all of us and possibly too much to bear for you, having been down a similar route I know the feeling.

For you own piece of mind invest in a new tank with at least 15mm glass, (about 19mm I think to satisfy engineeers).

I'm sorry to bring up a negative point with this stunning tank but do feel its constructive.
