I always wanted a tank that I can just put it on my desk.
I wanted a sump/fuge incorporated into all-in-one tank that doesn't require me to have a special stand that was made for the tank.
I wanted a sump under the main tank like a traditional tanks but I wanted tank and sump to be on my desk top.
I began thinking about how I can achieve this and came up with this idea.

"Make sump/fuge that will act as a stand for the main tank."

After talking to glass tank maker here in Korea, we came up with following tank which I am very proud of!

Here is picture of stand/fuge/sump for the main tank. All made with glass.

Another shot of stand/fuge/sump that shows led lights.

Here is shot of main tank on top of the stand/fuge/sump with led fuge light on.

Here is shot of main tank's external overlow/media chamber. All glass!

Here another shot with fuge led on!

More to come!

Thanks for looking!

Cool!
Is the bottom gonna be strong enough to support the fairly considerable weight of the top?
Awesome concept tho.

I think so. Bottom part is made with very thick glass. We have done water testing and it seemed very solid!

Cool design! The position would be nice as a "display" cryptic refugium if there weren't LEDs (or maybe red ones).

Oh.... Thats a nice Idea.. I was thinking, keep a sandbed on the bottom, with some macro plants and some inverts and keep a "display" fuge. Low flow..... Keep some goby-shrimp combo. On top, I would run bare bottom high flow so I can keep some SPS. LPS and clown fish or two.

I am waiting on Nanocustoms hybrid led+t5 fixture!

Thanks for looking!

Actually, cycling has just been done. So i will start stocking it. Also, instead of naanocustoms fixture, i decided to go with ecoxotics 12k cannon led pendant with blue stunner strips. I am also waiting for japanese blue spotlight leds in the mail. I am running two mame skimemer also. When this is all setup i will post some pics.
