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!

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.

nice idea. any updates?

 

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.
