Custom 90 gallon start up

Recommended Posts

Well I took the plunge a while back and decided to up my game to a significantly larger tank then my 10g nano. 

The new tank is a 90g with a 40g sump. It’s been a process as it was cut custom built from the ground up but thought I would post a few pics as it finally ready for sand, rock and water. A4E95342-0D46-4C2C-B01F-7391D32851AD.thumb.jpeg.54881f578ddc623502463f2ae702a76f.jpeg

I did, custom made for the tank and sump. There are doors for it also just haven’t put them on yet as I was still working on tying up cords and finishing the plumbing.

Frame is made of 2x4 and 2x6 then the outside was skinned with 1/2” exterior grade fir plywood so that it would stand up to evaporation and a bit of moisture. The top is 3/4 ext for plywood. Then I cover the sides and face with 5/8 mdf to give a nice smooth surface to finish.

Hard scape and water added. On to fine tuning and installing the stand doors.

First coral added, loving the colour on this guy the picture doesn’t do if justices. It’s a very bright orange with blue tip plate coral. Though I think I have to adjust his placement a bit as it’s getting a touch to much flow.
