    Pieter van Suijlekom is better known in the reefing world as Pieter Six Meter for his stunning 1,500 gallon, 6 meter curved glass display tank. This aquarium was constructed using 2 sheets of 12mm glass that were bent in a large oven separately and then bonded using a special resin.

    This labor intensive process is just the starting point for the exquisite reef that features excellent aquascaping, coralscaping and one of the most diverse private coral and fish collections in the hobby. Enjoy the video from Zeewaterforum. For more information see his ’06 TOTM article.

      I love the S. Quoyi (parrotfish). I’ve read reports of several Europeans keeping these algae grazing parrotfish in reefs. Still trying to find a specimen stateside and be the U.S. guinea pig…might be a good fish to replace the Mata.

      @ Eric, know anyone collecting these? 🙂
