That is sweet and very clean. What type of filtration are you using with that set up?

Thank you for the compliment and you as well uchiha. The tank is plumbed into an Eheim 2222 under the desk. I have moded the filter with submersible lights and filled the media baskets with live rock and chaetomorpha(lit 24/7). The cannister provides all of my filtration, water movement, and temp (constant 80 degrees). The return for the filter is visible in the picture of the front. The inlet for the filter is hidden under the sand - everything is sitting on a homemeade undergravel filter. I am estimating approx 40X turnover with good random turbulance.

I guess I typed my response too slow and you missed it ;)

I think I've got circulation pretty well covered.

Very cool product though! I will need to find a project to use them in now. Thanks.

Actually the two tangs doing laps would provide all the water circulation I would ever need!

Really nice setup though. I really like the clean look of it all, without pumps showing, etc.

Thanks! That was my goal. I was really attracted to the equipment-free tanks I saw in the nano edition of coral magazine but I wasn't really impressed with what I belived was sub-standard filtration and water movement. I have been so pleased with the benefits of a chaeto fuge in my big tank that my main priority was to do it in a small tank like this.
