This tank is bonkers,I absolutely love how it runs on big boy equipment for such a small tank. 

 

 I can't wait to watch the progress.

Waiting for Coral - Tank Build
What does a sleeper in the aquarium hobby look like? All hidden away is the craziness of this tank. Cemented the pipes, built a custom manifold, mounted the doser, plumbed the return and reactor. 90% complete now and hopefully this weekend I can do a leak test ^^

Very cool dosing reservoirs! Are they purpose built from scratch or made from something else?

SORRY FOR BEING INACTIVE! Been juggling a home renovation, new Waterbox build and this. FINALLY!

The Pico is wet! 
That's right! Did my first leak test! Unfortunately there was a small leak but it wasn't in the pipes but the overflow box. I didn't tighten it enough so I'll need to do that haha. Apart from that it's looking good! Are you as excited as I am?
