So here is the start of the build, just five pieces of acrylic 1@20”x20“ (base) 2@20”x11”(front/back) firstname.lastname@example.org”x11“(sides) I haven’t put something edible in it but it’s a “literal” start first things first! I have got to build the stand the stand is a 24x24X32 which will have a one inch top all of which is made out of scratch resistant lexan now I will have to start building the tank!
One of the joy of this hobby is watching your corals grow. So I used that as an excuse to start a frag tank because I am tired of seeing frag racks in my other tanks. This will be mostly for zoas and easy SPS. The acrylic tank is custom made by a seller on Ebay. It measures 20 x 16 x 6 and is only 8 gallons. It's sooo shallow and wide that it looks much bigger than 8 gallons. It comes with two frag rack that holds 100 frags total!! This tank will go into my basement that flooded a couple of months ago and remodeling is just wrapping up. I originally wanted a 18 x 18 x 8 tank, but it is impossible to find a cheap, modern sideboard / console table that's 18" deep. I will be running a MJ1200 pump and NanoBox Tide. I can't wait to stock this bad boy with corals. I will be using this thread to document growth and also to eventually start selling stuff on the forum when the weather gets nicer to ship 2 days USPS.
