Hey fellow SCA owners and future owners!

I thought it would be nice to have a place where we could gather ,talk story, get inspiration, share our success and failures, post FTS and just create a SCA community here on R2R... ( I searched but did not find one if there is post a link here plz)

so how about we start off this thread with some FTS?

I guess I can get us started! It's pretty dang new at this point, but here is my SCA 50 cube. (sorry for the dirty glass)

Here's a shot of the sump/fuge space.

Nice cube. Can we see it from another angle? I like that about cubes you get three unique equally sized viewing options.

I ordered a 60x26x19 Peninsula from SCA which should be arriving soon. I’m logging the entire set up on my build thread.

@Brew12 great looking tank!

yeah I just got the tank to not the PNP. I did a DIY 40br sump with DIY 2x4 stand but the news stands look really nice.
if that was an option when I ordered I would have gotten one.

SCA owners, did you use the foam pad that came with the tank or use something else for the foam between tank and stand?

I'm glad I stumble across this thread. I am looking to get a SCA120 or 150. They are only a few hours away from me so I plan on picking it up personally, check out the show room and save a little cash on shipping. I have a 85 gallon currently so i'm still debating on what I can reuse from my current set up (not much). If i went with a 120 I could continue running my 2 kessils and probably get away with running my 30 gallon sump for a while. The 150 on the other hand would add a lot more expense to the build. I just want to do it right this second time around and i'm afriad that if i went 120 i would later regret not getting a 150 haha. I also plan on getting one of their solid wood stand rather than MDF, can anyone tell me about the build quality of the tank and stand as a whole. Pics would be awesome as there isn't too much on the internet. Thanks everyone!!

there tanks are very nice! it will be heavy so have a friend or two to help the 12mm glass is no joke.
I wish there all wood stands where an option when I got mine they look very nice. when you go take a ton of pic and post em here.

I would go with the 150 or even custom like a 180 if you have the room. I think the 4' 120 are nice but the 150 look amazing I was so close to doing that then I remembered I am a renter that moves every few years...
I would have Steve drill it for external overflows like @Brew12 tank. more room to scape.

Here are some pic of my 90 love the rimless.
You can get the 120 &150 rimless to just FYI.
I really do like rimless vs euro braced. I do have plenty of room on my wall for a 150-180. It’s all about how much money I want to spend haha. I really appreciate the pics, I will text Steve and and let him know I want a rimless with a ghost over flow.

Shipping is free. So you won't save much. Lol
