@Aleks I noticed that you used gyre pumps but now use only vortech pumps. Did you not like something about the gyre pumps?

This is a production photo courtesy of the master. And he is perhaps one of the most successful and professional craftsmen in the aquarium industry. I was lucky that he agreed to quickly make my project, this assembly is completely made to order from clarified silicate glass 15 mm.

Hello to all. for the installation of the new aquarium, it was decided to keep the same place, everything necessary had already been done there - water drainage, the arrival of the RO / DI line and electricity. For this I decided to move my old tank a little to the side. This will avoid the loss of animals and corals. Thanks to all the friends from the local reefing club for their invaluable help with this event.

Well, they told me that my order is on the way. I was anxiously waiting for this moment, the aquarium, sump and panels and the metal frame itself were brought and raised to my home. And then they quickly unpacked everything and tried on the whole set. It turned out very cool.

New tank looks awesome! So this will be a second tank or a replacement for your current system? Did you consult with your cat about the new tank? He's giving it a detailed inspection.

Hey. Thank you for your interest in my new build.
Of course I'm waiting for questions and advice.
Yes, this will be a new aquarium, it will replace my old one.
The new aquarium is slightly smaller, but it will be much more convenient to maintain and maintain.
The main features are flat bottom.
Low height.
The drain hole is in the center of the rear window, this will allow for better flow.
The shaft is portable and not high.
Large stand will allow you to place equipment.

I also plan to launch the SR stone.
Sand 5 cm will be laid at the bottom.

The cat is the chief architect and he strictly controls everything.

Hey. minor update of current construction. after the existing aquarium has been moved to the side, it is necessary to repair the wall near which it was. the photo shows the sewage pipes for discharging water from the changes, and the osmosis supply pipe.
