Hey Jeff. Just found this thread. what a gorgeous tank. IF - and that's a big IF - I ever start another tank it's going to be a shelly. If it would look even half as nice as yours I'd consider it a success.
Yeah, I've got an empty 20 gallon long that keeps whispering "shellie tank" to me every time I walk by it.
I've admired Jeff's tank from its very beginning and it certainly has turned into a beautiful success.
