Looks good.

Although it looks as the front pane of glass is not starfire as it has a green tint from the side. I thought that starfire was clear with no green tint from the side. Maybe it is catching the tint from something else in the room.

THANKS

From the pic it looks green but actually it is light blue, remember it is still glass Starfire is low iron glass and shines light blue from the sides, regular glass shines green, and only acrylic will appear clear.

SWEET!!!!

I just saw a 300gal starphire cube last weekend in TX that was really awesome (including PVC bottom).

I trust you will be able to keep the glass clean. I'm not sure I could make the starfire worth it because of that...

Keep up updated!

ps. How much does that thing weigh?

You bet Green! Yeah that 300g tank must have been awesome! I love the look of cubes and with no rim makes it look like the water is just floating. I don't really know how much it weighs i havent attempt to carry it but i'm sure it is HEAVY lol.

Thanks Bud, Thor

Nice! Very clean. I like the black back and over flow.
No rim. No brace. Like you said just floating water with
acros. Is the bottom drilled? Thanks Jay

Hey thanks Jay!

I've decided not to drill just yet, don't really know where i want the holes and i'm actually leaning on getting 2 more Tunze and just run 4 of them on my controller instead.

i just find it funny. I lurk the Abq reef club forums for fun, since my wife graduated from PA school there recently and I at times need a break from coding at work. I'm from houston, just felt like responding since it seems NewMexicans have such close ties to Houston.

First the Fish Gallery thread, and now someone with a tank similar to invincible's new tank.

Good luck with the tank. It looks beautiful.

Hey thanks man! I have followed invincible's & Naka's threads from the start and they alog with beautiful Japanese tank's have inspired me to go the same route. I too am a lurker LOL I was a "New Mexican" but just recently became a "Arizonian" hahahahahaaa I still post in the Albq forum to keep in touch with all my NM reef buddies!

I have decided to ditch my GenX pumps due to limited room under the stand. In order to conserve space i went with one huge pump to feed my skimmer, return and chiller loop.

You have NO F&%^ING idea about track day, I rode out and I froze SOOOOO bad. when I got back I almost dropped my bike cause I couldent feel my legs anymore.

The first bike night was sick, 505 fiftys were there stunting and we had like 40-50 bikes total, even with the rain. last night I didn't go cause the rain AGAIN.

Maybe I can get out there sometime this summer for a trackday. :D
