Hello Reefers
how are you
this is my first time doing a build here by my self
so i have couple of tanks before and i have lot and lot of frags
i love collecting frags
so i decided to make a new tank for frags

i have already redsea reefer 250 connecting to it a 30g frag tank and its full
so i am making this new tank for frag as well and i might connect all the tanks together in one sump


so lets have some details about the tank i am building
it is going to be a glass tank
dimensions is
150cm*60cm*35cm (~59in*23.6in*13.7in )
it will be 10mm glass thickness
for the overflow i will make it external overflow box
in one of the side the glass will be down about 2-3cm so the water flow to the box


for the stand i was looking around and was going to use steal on it
then i change it to stainless steel
it is under making it should be finish in 2 days i got the idea from this photo i am making exact same and i will add wood in top

but i have a quotations : should i add legs to it ? or i don't need it ?

for the sump still i have no idea how i will make it
i want something big so later on i can connect the 3 tanks together

this is an overview of what i want to make
i will share some photo very soon

please give me some feedback as i will need it :D

Looking good! Did you build the tank yourself or have it built by someone? It looks like you've got a really nice setup planned.

i was going with the painted wood to handle water
but its not important to me its only to level the tank so i went with small one
