    4ages sps peninsula project

    ok..so plans are in place for next system..moved to a flat so had to scale down a bit..decided to try a peninsula setup this time

    tank will be 90cm by 65(or 70)cm wide by 55( or 50) cm high 10mm polished glass

    viewable from 3sides. sps dominated with few lps and unusual zoas (have most of the corals already)

    will be going with carbon dosing with MB7

    lighting is two ghl led mitras units with 2 or 4 ati t5 added in as well.

    vertex omega150 skimmer

    two rw 8 and a maxspec gyre

    plans have unfortunately changed..tank will no longer be a peninsula set up and dimensions have also changed.

    tank will be1 by 60w by 50h. Im waiting on building work to finish off in next week or so already have quote for glass etc.stand design is done just need to have it built.

    also got me a kalk reactor for the tank

    deciding on the scaping now..tempted to do a full scape with branching rock

    Dude, please can you share the stand design/ sump ideas?

    Are you putting any storage/gear space underneath or will it just be for the sump?

    @Naptalene..my design skills are old school..did quick sketch of my stand design n sump..sump will be a basic design with ro top up chamber

    Stand must be finished in white



    Sump



    I'm planning on having the finished product look something like this so a tv can hopefully also fit on cabinet

    Got it, thanks

    I really lust after one of those "reef in the sky" setups where everything fits in, but the more I look, the more it seems to be 2m+ tanks that get it right.

    Ps. Is that an Australian guys build?

    yep..an aussie build.

    its a challenge fitting everything under the tank... need to fit sump, dual chamber calcium reactor, kalk reactor and dosing pump under new tank.if I do the cabinet as per the design above il have enough space
