unfortunately I don't live where this tank is set up anymore. it's my parents house. also the plumbing is just ran behind the wall in the attic and then comes out right under the sink. it's just basic plumbing. I do miss this tank sometimes, but my dad has a couple African cichlids in there now.

it's amazing. What a good worker you are. The way you buildt your tank seems so easy, but need a lot of knowledge. Congratulation.

Very nice can i have the dimension of your tank? i really like it because it doesnt have braces on the floor of the tank. How thick is the glass your are using?

its not a problem if you have plenty of flow to circulate the water. almost all manufacturer built reef ready tanks have the return in the overflow box.

look into some more of my videos there is a few fish and corals already in there. I would love to have a mp40 ,but i cant afford a 300 to 500 powerhead......sadley
Joe K

Simply amazing. Can't wait to see it with the fish + coral. (a Vortech MP40 would sure be a nice addition on the side opposite the overflow box)

my return is on the opposite side of the overflow box.Is that what you are talking about?
packinwood2009
packinwood2009 - 8 years ago
Any updates on this? I wanted to build a tank where the return and the overflow were on the same skinny side of the tank but people have suggested not doing this because the water will only circulate right on that side of the tank. Has it worked out for you?

the acrylic does slow get some on there but i have 4 fans on my circulating air so i don't have much up there.Also having the bean animal over flow i have very little splash from the over flow as in almost zero inless there is a snail up there.
Mike R
Mike R - 8 years ago
How did that splash guard work for you on the LEDs? I added a sheet of acrylic exactly like that to protect my LEDs but noticed after a few weeks condensation would settle on the inside and dry ( leaving foggy water spots ) was curious if you had the same issues. I ended up just taking the splash guards off.

notw21 - 9 years ago
The only 2x6's are on the joist on the floor for wider support and the stand is a little tricky to explain. If you notice in the video each step for the bottom and the top the supporting structure are just to fit the tank. Yes it is a 40 gallon breeder. Yes it is a SRO1000ss I think that's how they say that haha. I hope i helped you out I am new to the whole video uploading and commenting back..

Simply measured the inside of the tank to get my length then notched the edges for the brace, and spaced them out 1/4 of an inch but i would recommend a little bigger spacing.:) thanks for the sub, and comment. I can't wait to get out more videos to.
