tank to hold between 20-25 gallons ... volume is 23 gallons
rimless tank with a cube'ish shape (19" x 19" x 15" tall)
slightly thicker glass than typically found on nano tanks
taller stand than we currently have ... new stand is 35" tall
incorporate wood trim and finished in satin white to match our home interior
interior storage in the stand with easy accesss to all the 'fish stuff'
I then modeled the concept to work out the final design and get a good feel for how the tank, stand and light will look. Next steps were to order the tank, for my son and I to build the stand, and order the light and base controller.
Tank: Chris at Pico Aquariums (3/8" Starphire all 4 sides)
Stand: built and finished by myself and my son
Lighting: Aqua Illumination Nano w/ Base Controller
Our plans at this point are a simple reef and run it on minimal mechanical filtration as we currently run our 20L. Livestock may consist of just a pair of clowns, a scarlet cleaner shrimp, a few other unique inverts plus a handful of snails/crabs.
I don't have a great camera (only an Olympus point-n-shoot) so my pics are coming out kinda blue.
Please let me know any suggestions or advice.
