    The overflowing rock scape is a must . Looks nice I have the 25 lagoon and just recently changed it to a macro algae /photosynthetic gorgonian tank . I think this be a cool idea with these type tanks too !

    Just started setting up a dropoff tank and looking for inspiration, thought it was funny that I ended up using this exact IKEA shelf as stand as well! :D Following this thread, please keep the pics coming!

    Still not sure how to take correct pictures with an iPhone but here's my IM tank. I am in the process of building a rock wall for the back ledge to make it more natural. This is my first tank it's been fun to work with so far stuffed quite a few things in the back already.

    Thanks! It is the 20 gallon from IM the Peninsula. Did the Prime AI HD+ light.

    Also added:
    Ghost protein skimmer
    Hydra 230 I think it was
    Jaebo doser
    Tunze nano auto top off
    Apex JR. was ordered but hasn't arrived yet

    I wanted to make sure I could manage a smaller tank before getting something bigger.

    @Crystal03JC love the rock work!

    Absolutely beautiful set ups from everyone, I seriously debated the drop off tank and while looking at them at my LFS noticed that they will fit on the Nuvo 20 stand BUT that's only horizontal and obviously not ideal for viewing. All these set ups here have me almost doubting my RSM C-130, great work guys!

    I think it takes a little while to get in it's stride and still is producing the micro bubbles. It definitely has a good full cup of green extract in 1-2 days. But tbh this is my first protein skimmer so I don't have much of a frame of reference but size wise I'm not sure we had many options.

    My friend got the other version of this with the dual pumps on the side rather than the back he really likes his as well.

    There definitely aren't many options for these IM tanks, I think between the ghost and the Tunze 9001 are basically it unless you plumb a sump or go with a HOB skimmer which really isn't an option with such a clean looking tank IMO.

    Hey reefers!
    I really love those IM abyss peninsula tanks!
    Especially Crystal`s and broach`s scapes look very very natural and almost perfectly fitted in there! Great job! :)
    A few short question to all abyss peninsula owners:
    Does a 9001Tunze fit in the back chamber - or is this skimmer a few mm too large???
    How do you guys manage not to scratch the acrylic in the bottom-zone right above the "sand-line"? Does it work well, or is it a p i t a?

    Many greetings from Germany :)
    Sandy

    We have the ghost skimmer too..that thing really produces skimmate!! Our top always has foam seeping out.

    Thanks for your replay Crystal ! :)
    Seems like many people use the ghost skimmer.
    Does anybody have the tunze9001 installed?
    I would be interested in that combo, cause the tunze is now available as DC-version, which I really like (adjusts easy, silence, safe-no-AC in tank....)

    Crystal, please keep on posting your progress with this tank here. Really can`t wait for pictures when the corals grow and even more life is added!
    Again, very cool looking little drop-off :)

    Greetings
    Sandy

    It does produce a good amount of skim and it looks pretty sleek.

    The downside is that its extra loud. It makes more noise than my 100 gallon skimmer. You can do a few things to reduce the sound but its still pretty loud. If they ever produce one that is quieter, I'd buy it in an instant.
