This is a 1st class set up - this is going to look amazing.

And I'm sure with this set up everything will be thriving..

Can't wait for this to come together...

Way to go

Hello Guys,

A few updates!!!!

I really hope that you guys enjoy!!!!

Daniel

In this first picture me (white jacket) and Mr. Renato Wada (green t-shirt). Renato is a Brazilian guy which is one of the world`s best glass reef manufacturer. To build the concave reef he used 2 pieces of 10 mm glass cristal clear in the frontal curve (total amount of 20 mm) and 2 pieces of 10 mm and 12 mm (total of 22 mm) in the other 5 sides!!!!!!
Congratulations Mr. Renato Wada, your glass project was perfect!!!!!!!!!

Great move! Congratulations on having your tank arriving! I have a few questions:

- Do I see correctly that the back is already painted?
- What are the two "windows" on the back of the tank?
- Is the tank not drilled? What are your plans for that?

The tank looks reaaaaly fantastic! Can't wait to see the rest of the build.

Hello acabgd,

Many thank's for your comments!!!!!

1 - Yes, the back is just painted with black ink. The inside back is cover with black silicone to avoid calcarean algaes!!!!

2 - These two windows is to build two external overflows. I will show you with details in the next updates, ok?

3 - I am so sorry, but I didn't understand what you mean with "tank not drilled". Maybe is something like to use or not to use closed loops?

Nice to talk to you!!!!!

Rgds

Daniel
