New to R2R but thought I would try and keep a new build thread. The only way I'm going to stay on top of it is if I post as things happen so this may take a while but if I wait too long it will never happen! The Idea: After having a few reef tanks and always wanting fish that nip corals I decided my next project should be a fish only. I love puffers and have always wanted a Golden Puffer so this tank will be for that. I will use either dead rock or artificial rock and artificial coral to give some color. The aquarium will be 250cm long X 135cm wide, 15 cm of this being a 250 x 15cm coast to coast overflow, so 120cm display area X 90cm tall. With sump and filtration it will be about 4000 liters, about 1000 gallons. We are building a new house so the aquarium will be placed central and built in so that we can see it from 3 sides meaning it will be visible from the kitchen, living room and entrance. The idea is to have a large gloss black surround to really make the display pop and also keep kids fingers at a distance! In the basement under the aquarium I will have a fish room to keep the sump, filtration equipment and quarantine tank etc. I welcome any ideas/experience etc through out this thread.
