Just curious, what is it with the 40b? I've heard it's the footprint, the medium size factor, and even the glass thickness. Everyone seems to love them, and I admit I've never actually had an aquarium over 30 gallons

It's just a good looking tank for reefs, it's got a great foot print, it's a shorter tank so lighting/maintenance is easy, it's got more depth to it than a 55 so it's easy to scape. IMHO it's the best standard made tank size, big enough to try some non nano type fish but small enough to still have all the perks of nano systems. Just my $.02

Really happy on light now this weekend I have to get the new outlet run down to the box so our bedroom will be it's own private circuit, get tank the old water/vin cleaning I am thinking of spraying the back with plastic coating before set up but should have cycle started by end of June now. And question on price $4.25/lb for cultured live rock seemed like best price I've come across at store owner said he would deliver that sand and initial water mixed

That's a good price for live rock but why not just get base rock instead?

So has anyone seen a birdsnest grow weirdly like this. It started out normal, growing up but more plates out. Here's a progression to show how oddly it has grown

It is growing out and down lol

I loved my 40b now I'm sorry I broke it down I miss it so much
the foot print gave many different ideas


now if I can get macro's to take off in the 90
I basically kept the same lay out


still waiting for my wife to finish upgrade on computer so I can upload more recent picts , I'm going nuts got a camera full but cant get them on comp till she's done doing her thing lol
it's come a long way especially since I added lots of new corals and stuff , I'm still fighting with macro's trying to get them to take off
hopefully soon .

That can be a common growth. Branching sps, especially birds nest can do some funky stuff when they grow. I want to say I did reading about it a year ago and how flow effects the growth patterns.
