    Yesterday we had the sincere pleasure of introducing an aquarium, code named “Reef 924″, which has been endowed with a balnk check for a budget, and the careful design and installation experience of Samuel Slobusky of Wet Work Reefs. We showed you Part 1 which featured all the different susbsystems of this very meticulously planned out planned out aquarium.

    Today we share with you Part 2 which features the tank filled with water, aquascaped with all ceramic rock, and with custom designed Elos Planet Pro LEDs. This whole rot build is outfitted with nothing but the best equipment, with the highlight for us being the fully loaded Royal Exclusiv Dreambox sump, plus all the skimmers and pumps for which it is designed.

    This reef tank is well on its way to becoming a world-class display, with quarantine systems for both fish and corals. We can’t wait to see what Wet Work does with Reef 924 in the future. If the inside of the aquarium looks anything like the perfectly designed exterior, this is a reef tank that should make many jaws drop in the near future. Full tank equipment specifications below as well as lots of pictures showing this tank in progress.
