    Nice tank did you drill those holes yourself? If so, what size drill bit do you have I have a 32mm bit but it is a bit too small. What fish you planning on keeping? Are you gona put corals in this tank?
    Cheers Wes

    Anemones need stable mature tanks(6months minimum) and lots if clowns in one tank won't go down so well. Rather just in pairs.
