I would love to have one of those, but that is not going to happen this time around. Maybe in the future.

LOL, well right now that's about all anyone can say other than "get on with it". The real meat of this thread will get going next week when I start going through the stock of the LFS I'm working for. I will decide on the tank I'm going to use and when that happens the build is going to go pretty quickly.


Keep the chin strap of your hats good and tight, all arms and legs must remain in the car at all times, enjoy the ride!

Are you referring to Zero Edge tanks?

That would be the ones he is talking about. Dr. Mac has a nice one at Pacific East Aquaculture.

The owner of the LFS I go to designed and built one based off of the Zero Edge tank, and had it as a display until he expanded. He didn't put it back up again because women/girls kept getting their tops all wet because they'd lean over to look into the tank and not realize the water was running down the outside. Apparently it was quite amusing.

LOL I'm sure it was.

They are really cool tanks but not practical for what I want to do with my system. Since I'm most likely going to go larger than the original 24g I will focus more on SPS, clams and higher end Zoas. I can't put together a reef tank without a zoa garden.

Yeah, I'm not sure how they'd work into having SPS. That's what I will mostly be going for with my next build anyway, so the girl may have to suffer! That, and you better have your zoa garden! I'd expect nothing less!

You know, I still don't understand it entirely either. Maybe for the sake of the customers' pride? Maybe he didn't want them complaining? Maybe he actually got a "formal" complaint? I'm with you on this one, Jimbo.

So I'm off to see the wizard today. Probably bringing home my new tank stand and bunch of other stuff. After a day of digging through 2000 sqft of aquarium supplies tanks and everything else fish related I will be on overload.

I intend to get pics of what ever makes it home posted this evening.
