    Hey guys, had the pleasure last night of hanging out with a local reefer buddy. I built the tank for him, minus the stand around 8 months ago. Clearly he has been busy since then....

    The tank itself is a 40 breeder cut down to hold about 15 gallons. The sump is a 40 breeder as well. Ill post pictures of that as well... Im in the process of editing the shots from his tank but here are a couple teasers. :)

    Ill post more shots and see if I can scrounge enough video footage together to make an edit. Feedback is appreciated! Thanks guys!

    That's awesome. Corals look really good, I'm curious how you cut the tank down...

    Yes it is!

    A dremel with diamond attachment, a couple beers and some frustration involved. lol The rim was ordered from All Glass Aquariums and siliconed back in place.

    It really doesnt. Its just because it has the footprint of a 40 breeder. I forgot the exact height but its nothing more than 8inchs. Ill post another shot that shows the tank from the side. This thread will be bombarded with more shots shortly.
