Yep, I bought it used. It was setup for around 2 years. He didn't do the best at taking care of it, so that's why there's so much algae.

Sick!!!!! I've seen similar ad's and they're completely unrealistic with the pricing. I'd have a tough time passing one up if it was a steal.. congrats and enjoy

I paid 600 and then added the wp-25 for 50$. Wasn't a bad price, especially around here. And thanks(:!


Do you guys think I should make my rock higher? I have a few more rocks pieces I could use to make it higher.

I had extra rocks and a bunch of unused space in the back. I also didn't have a lot of shelfs for coral placement. So my solution? Rescape!
