4x3 shallow rimless
Posted 26 March 2009 - 02:20 PM
The tanks very nearly 4'x3' its a metric tank measuring 120x100x45cm not as tall as i wanted but rimless,always really liked the look of rimless tank,it going to be quite low so you can look down on the corals, not to mention the ease of maintenance
heres the tank after i picked it up
here's the stand i've built for it

Love rimless tanks they always look so clean, If it was me I would hang the lights from the cieling as I think it clutters the tank and may take away from the rimless design.
lights will be hung from the ceiling,the pic was just after collecting the tank and i was just checking the tank over
Interesting size tank jed, would make a great Clam lagoon
Looks very smart - What are you planning on adding Brett? All SPS or a mix?
thanks,gonna be mostly sps
nice one brett, a man after my own heart, im doing the same on a far smaller scale.
this is the sort of size tank i've wanted all along,lovin the depth and height

wider reflectors than on most pendants,hope its up to the job.The light spread is pretty good it covers the 3' easy.

shallow tanks are the future, you wait and see
Gonna love watching this one Brett I would love a tank that you could look down on. What lighting you using, can you get away with a single 400 lumenarc?
Thanks dave looking down is the main benefit of this style of tank,nice carpet of acropora!
expect i've answered your question,had this pendant sitting around for the last couple of years, its still new and never been used so thought i need to at least try it, problem with lumenarcs there just too big and ugly.

Might be tempted to try that on my next tank and see how it looks.
Following this with interest
Hopefully not long to wait
