    Miracles 160g In-Wall Rebuild

    What Do You Wish You Had Known Before Ordering a Custom Tank??

    Think I’m about ready to pull the trigger on putting my deposit down for my big tank upgrade and I’ve gone back and forth with a couple of configurations whether it be height, width, overflow style, stand considerations, etc. I think I’ve landed on a 48x24x18 (90G) from Reef Savvy.

    Rimless 180 or 225? What are the best dimensions? Eurobracing required?

    I am in the market for a new tank in the range of around 180 to 225 Rimless.

I have a space in...
