    The ones in the pic you just showed are Black Ice. Snowflakes don't have the black line around it. The Black Ice that are actually black are either called Extreme Black Ice, or sometimes Phantom Ice. I buy and sell a lot of designer clowns :mrgreen:

    *****update*****
    here are 3 rockscapes i'm looking at so need some input. got the stand frame finished. now time to caulk the edges, paint interior with kilz, lay down shower linear for double protection, trim, and finally stain or paint the outside. we'll see how it goes. hopefully i'll be wet by christmas. lol
    heres the first rockscape all 60lbs
    [​IMG]
    heres the second one. took the a rock of the bottom right corner and a small one off the top left.
    [​IMG]
    third one took a piece of rock on the bottom left corner for a less rock look

    another lil update is the frag tank i'm going to be hooking up to the 57g. it's a 30g breeder. plan on putting it right next to tank on a different stand a lil lower. going to hang the tek lighting once i get the razors.
    doing a water test on it now. going to be drilling a couple holes for overflow and return.

    well, finally got a few days to work on the stand. got the caulking and kilz painted on the interior stand. bought the two mag 7 pumps i'm going to be running. got the baffles cut at ace hardware for $13 for 5 of them. got those in the 40b and caulked. put the trim on the stand and today got the first coat. here are some pics.
    heres the 30b on the bare stand. cant decide on how i'm going to open it up and close it.

    thanks. still have a couple of stain coats and then the polyurethane which i've heard sucks cause of the wait time. lol hopefully it'll be done by the weekend and then time to plumb.
