I can't wait to see it lit up with fish in it.
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

Every time I go into town, however, I pass the fish store and I have to fight the urge to go in and get a clown. I love those little guys. They are so cute and the way they swim is just too darned adorable. I am forbidding myself from even stopping there because I don't think I'll be able not to buy one... lol
And pgrass.. I think I will have my hands full when my little boy gets older and starts figuring stuff out. He LOVES fire. We have to watch him closely around anything combustible.

Folks may not know that Mrs.Tunes is a pretty doggone good and talented artist.
Lima - you should paint a realistic underwater scene on canvas and slip it in behind your tank.
BTW - There is a huge salt water tank in the dining room where my Mom is staying now & some of those fish are so colorful and beautiful.
That tank seems to be very well maintained and a guy comes in on a regular basis to do the routine upkeep on it.

My favorite Tanked is the Bart Scott koi pond, I'm building a bigger pond next year. Wife won't let the fish in the house <sigh>. My favorite tank for them was the casino tank- what a monster!

Great build Lima, that looks really professional.
Careful with the live rock... I used to work for a place that had a big fish tank, and suddenly fish started dying with little pieces of them floating around, then the lights went out. Turns out that one of the live rocks had a crustacean of some kind in it that got big enough to prey on the fish at night. The lights went out because when the thing buried itself in the sand under its rock, it cut the power cable to the lights.
