    It will take something special to better this tank. IMO, was and still the best in SA.

    No ways. Check out the size of those Acro colonies!

    Was there a couple of weeks back, they've done a rescape and taken out quite a few corals

    about 2 years.

    No WAY the new tank is anywhere close look at the video again count the number of fish in there out the top of my head 2 nasos, 2 achilles, 1 sohal, about 5 yellows, 3 powder blues HUGE regal and a few others. U would really have had to see that tank in the flesh it was SPECTACULAR!

    agreed.....i saw it about 4 years ago.......
    i dont think it can be beat......remember that tank was done that time ago.....
    and for adriaan to have done that....then........well it goes down as a iconic tank

    This was Adriaan's tank at home. The shop tank is not even in the same league.

    lol.....you know any dude that turns his garage into a fish tank is serious...lol
    as a matter of fact i think adriaan drove a subaru wrx at the time and decided to park it out side so he could build the tank.......
    personally i dont blame him....if he drove a alfa i may have disagreed:thumbup:

    The new tank died though, the one at the shop had a leak and wiped out almost everything.

    A few weeks ago. Most of the sps are gone and I think one or two of the big clams died. The tank drained till half way and stayed like that for a few hours.
