    Since my grouper started complaining about his 3k pond not being "good enough", I give you his new 15k pond. The project started around November of last year and was completed in May. Below are some pictures of the build...

    I was trying to find more pictures of the build right before we added the pebbletec/water but they might be in another HD somewhere. The pictures do not do it justice so I'll be posting a video soon!

    Looks like Living color may have assisted with the reef. I saw no grouper either?

    Ha, yes. The first week he was hiding inside the corals and wouldn't come out. He scratched himself while transferring from tank to tank so I'm sure he was pretty stressed. I'll take a new video soon, he definitely enjoys the camera.
