    Come on man...it’s not a reef tank without sand. Ever been to a real life reef that didn’t have sand?

    I know it bro! I love sand. I’ve never went BB except for one frag tank.

    I kinda liked it, but kinda didn’t.

    I’m really thinking about going with more SPS this time, because to be frank, my tanks run too clean for softies. Even though I love corals that blow around and soft coral tanks.

    The thought of running powerheads on the bottom of a white starboard tank gets me excited.

    I’ve never been able to grow corals on the bottom of the tank. Ive always wanted to do that.

    Heh...I just don’t know. Have no idea what I’ll end up doing.

    I vote black ABS. I was actually planning to do the same in my next build when it comes along. It seems like an easy way to run high flow and it looks visually pleasing.
    I don’t clean my skimmer every day, but when I do,... I clean it bare-handed.

    Yeah. I concede. It does look clean. I’d say white bottom over black
