Makes me so jealous! I've always wanted a large SW tank. I have a small FW for now. Maybe someday I can have a nice one like yours =)

Kaitym, thank you for the compliment compared with other people here, I have a pretty small tank, only 28 gal actually (I miswrote 26gal) on the topic. a lot of peeps said it looks bigger than 28 gal in the pics

It does look larger. But either way it's still amazing. I don't think I could begin with a saltwater tank.

Nicely done! I'm about to start a tank, but not sure if I can do SW. But still, it's gorgeous!
