Aquascaping: Part 1

Posted 10/30/2011 at 03:52 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

Posted 10/30/2011 at 03:43 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

I was just reefing along, minding my own nano-business when a local reefing couple put their gorgeous 144g Oceanic Half Circle tank up for sale. Well, what could a gal possibly do but buy it and start her dream tank?!
