    Nothing yet. Ill be closer to MACNA when this happens. I want to see if there will be anything new with tanks or lights. Recently i started looking at cube aquariums also and thinking about a sump. So im still throwing a lot of options around.

    I will never own another tank with clear silicone. Black silicone is the only way to go IMO. Cant stand to look at corraline covered clear silicone that cant be cleaned. In some cases black silicone means special ordering a tank. Planet Aquariums is who my last tank was from and was top notch. I also always oversize the glass thickness. I have also looked at deep blue aquariums but have never seen one in person. I believe their tanks have black silicone already. This is just my 2 cents

    I actually built my cabinet to conceal the seams for that reason. But not a look for everyone and I get that. If I were doing a new seamless style tank, Id go black on the silicone as well.

    Many people spend a ton of money on whats inside the box but skimp on the glass box in which they pit their coral and fish in. Not saying there is a right or wrong waybat all.

    For the long haul I would definitely spend the money on a custom cube from Planet Aquariums and probably go a little larger toward the 75 to 100 gallon range due to the ever burning desire to gain a few more gallons or inches of space. Truth is that a little larger would only take up a tiny bit more or a foot print than the original thought of 50-60 gal

    The reason im thinking 60 as max is because, bigger tank = bigger equipment = moee money.....
    This will only be for a couple of years since Im going to do an in-wall tank when we build':banana:'..

    But again Im still leaning toward the 50 lagoon unless i find a deal i cant pass up.

    I decided to use the Caribsea Life Rock for my tank. Going to be ordering my sand in the next week or so. The light I decided to go with is the JBJ Orion Sl-140 series. I'm also looking to up grade the 2 return pumps with one small dc pump.
