    Hi All,

    For those that do not know, I had a Fatal Base crack on my 3 foot custom tank, Not really sure why, the only thing I could think that would have caused this is the crack was right underneath the heater, Anyway, this forced me to speed up my little DIY tank builing project with some spare glass I had at home.

    Please note this is a bit of a rush job as I have some corals surviving in a bucket..

    But these are the tank Dimensions.

    DT
    101L X 450W X 350H

    Sump (I know its small but will build a new one at a later stage)
    28L X 22W X 17H Will have a small DSB

    All is built and with some advise from DallasG I managed to drill the base and built the overflow.

    Will try and post pics soon.
