    Thor’s reef was the first top selection ever on GBD. It set the tone for the aquariums we have since featured, while highlighting the importance of aquascaping. Thor has maintained this beauty and further improved upon it by removing some fast growing tangs and improving the coral scape. We love the way the Scolymia australis fits into the bonsaiesque rock structure.

      Thanks for sharing the video Eric.

      Any chance you can get Thor to give us some more insight into the tank? Does he have a thread on a forum somewhere?

      The aquascape is really inspiring, but if done wrong, looks like crap. Seen too many tanks try mimic this ‘bonsai’ style and well, nearly all of them have failed. I’d like to see those acro’s grow out a little more too, then this tank will really be something special 🙂

      Brilliant tank. Love seeing the growth that has occurred since your last write-up.

      Strangely enough, I was looking at that very tank this morning for aquascape inspiration for my new system. Many may come and go, but this one seems it’ll definitely stand the test of time as one of the great tanks out there.

      I just stumbled upon this tank and I must say WOW!! Also, I don’t know if I failed to notice, or if it’s just not listed, but what are the dimensions of this tank? It’s hard to gauge from this picture the volume and depth.
