    Hello everyone, here is my tank thread, hope you find it interesting. The tank is 40 by 20 by 23 1/2" acrylic custom built by Kara Kreations.

    Stand, sump and canopy are built by me. IMG_2452.jpg IMG_2453.jpg IMG_2454.jpg IMG_2455.jpg IMG_2456.jpg IMG_2467.jpg IMG_2468.jpg IMG_2469.jpg IMG_2470.jpg IMG_2471.jpg IMG_2473.jpg

    I've been having trouble with the tank lately, because, as usual, I forgot to replace my RO filters, but the closeup pictures of the corals are coming soon .=)

    Sure, the sump was slightly modified after I took those photos, the water falls into the middle, behind the filter sock, into a small compartment, ( mainly to reduce the noise of the falling water,) from there it overflows onto 4" filter sock, after that it flows through the opening at the bottom right, where the water goes into the skimmer section, then it overflows into the front compartment , I use it as a Refugium, lastly it overflows from the refugium into the return pump section. I'll post a video of it tomorrow.

    The light is floureon grow light, 60 watt, 24" by 4" they use to sell for $70 on eBay , but they're much cheaper now, I got this thing for $20. The build quality seems very good for the price .
