    WOW! Awesome new tank, Werner! PLEASE add some wood, and polystyreen below the tank before you fill it with water! As I think this tank MIGHT crack if you don't have wood, and polystyreen between the tank and the metal stand.........

    Looks cool man

    Looks like the sump has got a glass lid, is it normal to close the Sump like that? Im only asking because i dont know.

    Is the stand open at the back by the sump?

    Very nice tank. If I may suggest - remove the cover on the sump to improve evapouration as the tank also has a cover.

    Is that 615 water height? Anyway, you take (1500 x 600 x 615)/100 = 15 x 6 x 6.15 = 553.5 litres
