    No build thread, I have been thinking about it but I have no idea how to do any of this on this site. I just haven't had the down time to toy with it.

    Go to the FORUM tab, scroll down the page to the large tanks forum. Then post a new thread ;) That will be your own build thread.

    This is one of our large reef aquarium at The maritime museum and Aquarium in Gothenburg, Sweden. It's about 10000 litres and been running for a little more then three years now.
    So it's not my own tank but I'm responsible for it :)

    Still putting mine together (180 Gallon Peninsula Tank). But this is what I came up with (lots of little caves and nooks for the fish and inverts).

    Revisiting this thread, as we are looking to reboot our 125. While it is not a "large tank" by the standards of this thread, I hope to take some inspiration from the ideas here and continue to refine as we work towards our own dram "large" tank.
