Very nice. You've made great use of the space in the tank. It looks bigger than a 29gallon.

Good job, really nice rock work and coral placement. Good looking 29 now just sit back and watch it grow "together".

Awesome design!

and I'm pretty picky about that sort of thing...
We'll be fighting in the streets with our children at our feet, and the morals that they worshipped will be gone.

And the men who spurred us on sit in judgment of all wrong, they decide and the shotgun sings the song.

First off nice tank. I have a 29 and it looks nowhere near as good as your tank. My question to you is how long have you had the xenia under that lighting. I thought you couldn't have xenias with your current light set up
