    Default Whitetigers 2.25 gal contest tank

    Well the 15 gal tank is done for..got a pair of seahorses and the are wrecking havoc on my zoa plugs so instead of dropping out i am entering my 2.25 gal pico in the contest..I talked to Jolson and he said i could do it if i did it by Feb 28..so here it is..I rescaped it for better coral placement..I found a couple of pieces of rock at pruess on sunday and epoxied them together..i think it looks good.. ok getting ready to take the empty tank shot now..then getting my price list off the other thread...
