Salt Water Perfection

Fragbox takes pride in featuring this perfect tank by Richard Orme. His love for the hobby and attention to detail is evident in  his aquarium. The tank exemplifies perfectly placed live rock, coral selection an negative space . His tank is an ultimate example of zen achieved in a salt water aquarium. The homemade aquarium controller is simply amazing!
