    Word got around that Urban Marines creations are in a league of their own.It is in this light that we were requested by a corporate to design,install and maintain an aquarium in their new offices.We obliged....

    The aquarium is 3000 mm long,800 mm wide and 1100 mm high.
    42mm base and 30mm back,front and sides...overkill? maybe but rather be safe than sorry.

    It will be full reef.....using.. you guessed it...Real Reef Rock

    First challenge...how to get a 3m piece of glass into an elevator that is max 2.9m

    Solution.....50 ton crane

    Massive, my goal would be 1000 wide and water level at 1000.

    Is this a private tank?

    Great idea from the client, something to take away the daily work stress, have you guys been given a timeline on finishing the project? Gonna be following this build and well done so far.
