Let me first start out by saying this build would not be posible if it was not for Marek (Reefoman) and his impeccable,outstanding,quality artwork.


Marek's tanks are always built as if they are going in his own living room.
His kindness and professionalism does not stop there, help & suggestions for lighting and plumbing was of great help and appreciation.


So thank you Marek ;)


Now on to the tank:
48x30x22
Rimless
Peninsula
Star fire glass (3 sides)
Custom External overflow.
Drilled for closed loop (2 holes in the bottom,2 in the back mid level & two are over the top in the back)
75 gal sump
30 gal conical settling tank.
Darkroon Flowwolf 1"/6 V3.0 Digital Flow Diverter
Iwaki 30 for return
Reeflo dart for closed loop
SRO-XP-5000sss cone
Plumed so I don’t have to lift buckets for water changes anymore.
Diy screen top
Total water volume 210gal

ATI Powermodule Hybrid
I was originally going with Halides but after seeing this light on Reefomans tank I knew I had to have it.
Keeping in mind the new stand was built low enough to hang MH just incase ;)
