    We wanted to document the newest addition to our building. With the recent upgrade to more space we decided to furnish our reception area with the finest aquariums and equipment around. We sell it so we figured what a better way to test and demonstrate many of the products we offer.

    For this tank we decided on 8'x2'x2' Euro Braced Tank. The Stand is white euro style to match the rest of the room's decor.

    The Tank and Stand were built by our Friend Carlos Vera. Carlos also built us a custom sump along with ATO resevoir.

    Skimmer: RLSS R10i
    Return Pump: TBD
    Powerheads; TBD
    Top off : Tunze Osmolator
    Lighting: TBD

    An interesting thing we decided to do when we got the stand inside was to leave a gap behind the tank for access if needed from the back. Also gives interesting depth to the system.
