    I'm not sure I follow what you're saying here, but nevertheless, I finally got some numbers back from some suppliers - and it's way cheaper than I expected! I think 30" is too deep, however, as I don't want to go swimming every time I need to reach the sand bed, so I think I am back to 24" deep and 30" wide, 84" long. I sure wish I could go bigger, it doesn't really seem worth the effort for 260 gal. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    Perfect! And I was a good guesser, had 16mm Starfire quoted. And does that seem really thin for a 7' tank to anyone else but me?! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    But, but there's no attachment or link. Now you're just teasing me, lol. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    Who wants to volunteer to come tell my wife? Lol. In all seriousness, trying to source/price a piece of Starfire glass for the front, but getting a little hung up on thickness. Does anyone know how to calculate proper thickness with any certainly? Website/link/etc.? Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    Interesting. I'm really getting more excited about this by the minute! I'm curious as to this 'pour' vs 'roll' method that you speak of. I am a project manager for a large commercial epoxy flooring company, so I'll have to research this a bit more. Typically, manufacturers have an exact installation method for their products- it's not an either/or option. Certainly do appreciate you bringing this to my attention! I can't quite think of a reason not to do this build... Someone talk me out of this!! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    So any concerns with durability in the long run? My intended dimensions are 36"W x 30"H x 84"L, so roughly 400g. Where did you purchase the glass? Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    So... Inherent to my nature, my current 175g system isn't nearly big enough and I want bigger. Considering I plan to put a huge tank in the wall with only the front glass exposed, why not save some money and build a plywood tank. Does anyone have any experience building one? I'm a bit concerned with longevity and durability. I have to imagine they are somewhat limited, but I would like input from others before I jump in to this.

    That is pretty cool. Is that a Niger Trigger I see? I'm guessing no CUC?!

    Nice! We don't drink much ourselves, but still perhaps a fun getaway. And a new home addition... Just how big of a tank are we talking?!
  10. RockyProndoa

    This sounds like a fun idea...I somehow haven't heard of it in years past. I live in Toledo so not a fancy excursion, but might be a nice excuse for the wife and I to spend a night away from home. Has this been popular in the past?
  11. RockyProndoa

    Looks fantastic. Love the scape.

    After doing a bit of digging, I don't disagree. It seems the diffusers bought some extra time from a product release standpoint. What does this mean for me? I'm probably stuck buying the Gen 4 XR30s. Though, I did watch the BRS video in one of the links above and at the end during their suggestions, they are going to run TEN XR15s on their 6' tank ($4k+) - so I guess I can't complain!
  13. RockyProndoa

    I hear ya. I've been doing terribly with my ReefBreeders, but clearly the problem is me as there are numerous accounts of great success with them. So... I'm going to avoid the problem (me) and buy a bigger band-aid lol.
  14. RockyProndoa

    This is why I move everything to the 'Need' column; no more internal conflicts lol. But in all seriousness, I'm probably ok in the $1-2k range, but anything more than that for lights and I have a tough time justifying it. If I'm going to spend that much on lights, I want a 400g+ tank... Speaking of....
  15. RockyProndoa

    It's funny you posted this because I literally just got done reading a large thread on a different forum praising these lights...I may have to dig in a bit deeper. It also appears I may be waiting awhile for the Radion Gen5s to release, and not sure I want to spend $2500 on new lights, especially since there is really nothing wrong with my current Reef breeders v1 - I just WANT the upgrade, lol.
