In the process of starting up a new 120 gal tank. Process will be agonizingly slow as two kids under 3 compete for my time. Tank is a custom Tenecor acrylic 60x24x20.

Custom stand got here in April

Took a step back (had to paint the ceiling). At least the curtains are up now.

Hmmm... strange for someone to have such a nice tank check in here and not repost. Either everything is going incredibly well or this thing never got off the ground.

Another attempt at flasher pictures. BTW capturing the radiant wrasse in a picture is next to impossible for me.

The yellowfin flasher jumped in mid Dec. during a brunch we had at our house. The 8 or so kids staring in the tank were just too much. It found a small gap in the cover I have over the openings.
