    Here is a few comments from the judges
    A truly awesome system to view.
    ...it looks settled in and comfy.

    Smatney, your presence is hereby requested amongst the Judging Staff to serve your term in selecting future TOTM's. Though next month we are considering doing something a bit different in celebration of CR's 1 year anniversary, your participation would be appreciated.

    To those entries submitted during July, your images will remain in the TOTM Gallery for August's nominations (update them if you wish), those submitted in June will be moved to the general Tanks gallery, but you may resubmit as often as you like. Thanks to all who have taken the time to show off their tanks! We hope you will continue to do so often.

    Again congratulations to Smatney!
    The CR Staff.

    Oh my gosh! I just found out that I am tank of the month! I have been out of town and did not even know! I love my tank, it's 8 months old, 92 gallon corner tank. There are two 250w 10K MH's and 2 24 inch actinic VHO.s I hava a calcium reactor and an ASM skimmer. It's all run by a Neptune which I could not live without. I'm anxious for the frags to grow out as well.
