Brian goes by MakoJ on ReefCentral, and is president of MAAST

4 X 400W 10k Reeflux's and the tank has been running since 1/04/2007

Brian is the president of MAAST, and has a beautiful tank. It is lit with four 400w 10,000K Reeflux bulbs in Luminarc III reflectors. The tank has an external overflow. It is built inwall with a fishroom behind it, and all kinds of cool equipment hooked up. My favorite is the laptop mounted on a wall within the fishroom. This tank has been running since Jan 2007, an upgrade from a 150g and a 75g combined.

For some reason, I never took a full tank shot. I guess I was too busy enjoying the corals and pizza.
