    I need advise on tank availability, as I don't have the expertise to build one myself. I have a corner, 1.2m x 1.2m and would like to have a curved corner tank. Are there any readily available tanks ? (Thought of about 430 L tank)

    Hello and welcome.
    1.2 corner with curve front will be expensive. That is one big curved glass pane. But will look very nice.

    Speak to Bob at Idol Marine. Bob the Reefbuilder.
    Check out his thread on the tank in his house. With a bowed front panel, awesome.
    Biggest issue I see in your setup is that you will not be able to reach into the corner to do any maintenance unless you climb into the tank.

    And I suggest reading a lot. Check the for sale forum, nice tanks and bargains do pop up. And some nice equipment.

    Can you get to the back corner? from other room or by walking around the tank?
