This month's prize will be a frag or two out of my tank

To recognize scott (swannyson7) for everything he has done for our club and i wanted to keep our club going in a good direction. So i picked a theme that comes to mind when i think of his tank the theme will be cleanliness of your tank. ( This could mean how clean you setup your tank to how clean your stand is to how clean your mature sand bed is be creative)Clean up your tank show us what your workin with :)

Should there be an age restriction for this one? A tank only running for a couple months that is just getting started with a bioload is going to look a lot cleaner than a 7 year old mature reef. No matter how much time you spend cleaning it....

True salty but it could be how clean you ran your pipe work or how clean your stand looks of how clean your build looks in general but this might be a hard topic if I don't get any bits by tonight I will change the subject
