    So after many years of dreaming, drooling and envy. I finally took the plunge to get my first ever marine tank.

    Excuse the poor quality pics from a crapberry will take better pic eventually when the tank is with me.

    It is currently still being built by the @Nemos Janitor team.

    I will post pics as things progress.

    In total the tank will be just over 900 liters including the sump.

    Here is some pics

    Nice!! Can you maybe post a pic of where it will sit for many moons to come if that's not being too intrusive?

    The inside of the L shape is 1.300 x 0.500
    The tank is 0.600 wide and 0.650 high
    The three outside corners are cut offat 0.300
    So in theory the tank is equivilant to a 2.400 x 0.600 x 0.650 less 75 liters
    Tank volume is +-900 liters.
    Sump is 1.200 x 0.400 x0.450 ( 190L)
