    Dear Fellow Reefers,

    I hope that you and your tanks are well.

    It’s show time!!!!

    Yes the marine expo at Emperors palace has started and will be on for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

    Adriaan and Jean have been hard at work getting the stand together and it’s been worth it. The new Idol Marine LUX Pearl is beautiful and, I really believe shows how Idol marines production levels have taken another big jump forward.

    Apologies, Adriaan’s tank building skills far exceed his photographic ability.

    The back of the tank with shelves and storage space.


    We hope to see you at the show and look forward to showing off the new LUX pearl.

    Even if you can’t make it, the shop will be open and Luis will deal with any marine issues you may have.

    Cheers

    The Idol Crew.

    Thanks, it is stunning.

    It's finished with Lexus Pearl automotive paint and polished to within an inch of it's lfe hence the name.

    A lot of thought has gone into it making it a beautiful piece of very high quality furniture that could stand alone in any space.

    Cheers

    Rob.

    We're not completely sure and it will depend on what it's set up to take and what equipment gets installed?

    that does look like a great tank, hard to believ that idol marine can improve on tank build quality, but it certainly looks like you have. best of luck with the expo guys

    Any ballpark figure for the one posted above, it looks like a 1.2m unit?

    Nice. Hopefully this setup will become a display in the shop now. Including the Nespresso machine of course.
