    Welcome to MASA.

    Feel free to use and abuse the search facility on this site. Most of what you need to know is covered in detail somewhere. I started out recently and the search function has been my friend ever since.

    Post pics of your tank, it will assist other more experienced members to help you out with your queries.

    Also, look for MASA members in your area, it's what I did. A visit to other reefers will give you a much better idea on how to do things. Most, if not all MASA members will try to help you in some way or another...

    hello and welcome.

    Rounded tanks are not normally custom build units. Those rounded corners are made in a specialized factory. Does it have an overflow and sump?
    Couple of pictures would help use in helping you.
