Hi fellow reefers, I have been checking out reef tanks for a few years and got the wife’s blessing to fill up a space in our living room with a tank measuring 2 meters in length and 80cm by 80cm, touching shy of a 1300 liters for display tank.

Total system volume will be 1600 liters. I have gotten a few things already from Gary at RBM aquatics in Belville, Cape Town. Cabinet is being made and assembled in two weeks hopefully and glass is ordered.

So starting this thread for keeping track of how it started and checking progress of this tank as it matures.

Hello and Welcome @PJ

I would move the stand just a bit to the left. To stand in the middle of the wall. And not so "on" the chair on the right.

Hi Riaan,

Will move once completed, it is a peninsula style tank to be a room divider for my home office to be finished in 5 years from now.

The company I ordered the glass from got the sizes wrong twice, after a long struggle, Nezaam can finally put the tank together.

He is a master of his trade, not completed yet
