    So many of these tanks were high on my list that I didn't expect to have a list left when I got to the end of the thread. I do have one unique one left for everyone to check out though. I've never seen anything else like this, but I can't seem to find much for specs on it.

    Is that a tide-pool tank (varying water level)? That's awesome.

    Yeah. It's amazing how colorful the SPS looks even out of the water.

    This isnt the "coolest" tank out there... but it is my favorite because I have a strong emotional tie to it. The tank I took care of for 3 years at PSU.

    500g pacific DT, 100g caribbean DT, 100g sump. 4-400w Ushio 14k on icecap ballasts over pacific reef and one Ushio 14k over the caribbean. ETSS custom made skimmer, custom Ca reactor, a couple sea swirls split off or three iwaki pumps (one return, two closed loop). Fed with plankton/mysis, cyclopeeze, shredded nori, and pellets twice daily... And an APEX that controls it all.

    I Don't think this one is on here yet.

    Love this tank for the simple fact of the amazing color!!! I just upgraded from a 25 to a 40g breeder. I have never had a piece of SPS in my reef keeping "career", but this tank definently gives me the itch to try some!!
