Love the attention to detail and that you are doing it so well right from the start.
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the advice.
I will remove it for sure.

Hi Ching, are the MH 400w or 1kw? If it is 400w do you think there would be enough par at the bottom ?

First time i actually see an aquarium made from 2 inch thick acrylic. Must admit that i am impressed by the obvious clarity of the acrylic, even in this diameter ! Price must be... even more impressive...

I dont even think it is possible over here in Belgium to find a manufacturer who can make panes 2 inch thick. Damn.

The build quality is also impressive from what we can see in the pictures ! Congratulations to the man who build this.

Could you ask him what type of solvent he uses ? is it weld on 3 or 4 ?

It is 400w.
I used to think that par will not be enough for that height of tank until I did see my friend' s tank.
He has the same height as mine.
Corals at the bottom are all happy. Mainly are LPS.

X men. Thanks.

The man who make this tank, he used to work with this company(http://www.rptasia.com/) for many years before he sets up his own company.
That's why he is full of experience.

He didn't use weld on.
The method that he assembled this tank called Bonding.
