    Default Whose tank inspires you?

    do any of you guys have that one tank that inspired you to do what you did? i have a few.
    1. sonnyx's rimless is the one that leaves me speechless, and made me choose a rimless nano.
    2. for the waterfall part i found these videos on youtube.

    I had 7FW tanks going when I walked into our LFS and saw my first 8g Oceanic Bio-Cube being kept as SW.
    June 11th of 09 I set one up. Moved a year later an the 8g was the only one that came with me. Every thing else sold or is in storage.
    Today whenever I look (which is often) at JimsFlies tank, the words that come to mind are-I wanna be like JimsFlies. Sounds silly but it's the truth

    I guess ill be at the different end of the spectrum, i didn't base my tank or get an inspiration from any one tank. Cause i want mine to be my own creation. though there a lot of amazing tanks out there, i want mine to be one of those amazing tanks people go wow i want mine to look like that.

    I also did not get inspired by anyones tank. I just randomly got into the hobby for some reason. However I will say that I admire andys tank (tank of the year winner) and I kind of look up to it.
    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.

    I am inspired at least monthly, and at times- daily!!!!

    I have to say though- my dads tanks, growing up, inspired me to get into the saltwater hobby myself, and Dentdominators tank inspired me to take it all seriously, and try to do it right and learn what needs learned to do so.

    Between then and now though, as I said- there have been so many inspirations!
