starboard

Looking for a local reefer that has this in there tank. I would like to see the stuff in a tank. Want to go BB and this is a nice option for the bottom of the tank. maybe



next option my be to make my own. I have seen a thread hear that some one poured a clean coating over a shallow sand bed and it hardens to make it one peice. then it is sealed to the tank. I will look into that also.

Thanks

i like it overall,i recommend that it be cut as close as possible to the tanks inner dimensions.only thing i would have done different is to silicone the edges so detritus doesnt get under it.
