    Hi guys

    Thought id share with you my new tank build and setup. I really hope that i can get it wet this time. :p I have sold my previous tank build to Expreess Reef. Some of you might remember that build. Here is the link anyway.
    Goby's new 100L CUBE adventure - Marine Aquariums of South Africa

    Well on to the new build i guess. I have decided to go shallow reef this time!! :lol:
    I just love building tanks!!

    Display tank 1200mm x 700mm x 350mm with center back overflow box.
    I have installed the overflow box today. It is very funky. I have made it in bright orange!! It looks so kewl. For me, much better than the usual black. It gives the tank a super funky colorful look!! PICS on that soon.

    Sump is still in planning. Will keep you posted on that.

    I have ordered 80x 3W led and awaiting delivery.

    - 36x 10000K
    - 36x Royal Blue
    - 8x UV

    All with 60deg optics, and 4x dimmable drivers.

    I will keep you guys up up to date with everything! And yes, PICS will follow soon!

    Can't wait to start this baby. So far its looking very good. Picking up my RO/DI unit tomorrow. Getting the stand to powder coat on Monday. Should have it by Wednesday. And getting my glass for the sump built.

    If everything runs to plan, i can fill it up this coming weekend! :thumbup:

    Very funky dude, I like! :thumbup:

    Where did you get your overflow teeth cut? Was it laser-cut? Must have cost you a small fortune... wow. Looks very professional though... good job!

    Good luck with the build.
