    Viking put a link on his first post to his Web site. It's under the pic of his tank called 'My reef setup.'

    His pics aren't the best though. I have already given him grief about that. If he didn't live so far away, I'd come down there and take the pics myself! ;D

    Hi! I plan to make a reef tank of PLYWOOD and GLASS myself using your handy instructions. (Im so excited!!~!) Thank you so much! I was wondering though....are there any rules to the dimensions of the tank? I was planning to make a tank 33x28x24 (INCHES)....33 being the face from left to right, 28 being the side from front to back, and 24 being the height from top to bottom...it would be about a 90-95 Gallon tank and I will be using 3/8" thick GLASS for the front. Would there be any problems with this? I would apreciate any and all input you can give me before I begin...even info that is not pertaining to the dimensions would be greatly appreciated. By the way, Im sure you get this alot...but your web sight is great, thank you very much, I know I will be using it a lot!

    David??
    That sounds fine. 3/8 inch glass will be good and no problems there.
    Here is my e-mail viking@petos.com.au
    please feel free to mail me if you need any advise or if i can be of any help at all.
    Cheers,
    Viking.

    Viking hasn't been here since 2003. If you see him, say hello for me! :)

    I saw this tank in person when I visited Viking in Australia several years ago and it was more than stunning in person. Since then he has packed up and moved back to England where he is unable to keep a tank. I saw him again last year when he came to the States for Tangster and my wedding and he is doing very well. I'll tell him you said hello next time I hear from him.
