Peter R

Pete’s 6ft X 2ft X 2ft in wall tank has been running for 9 months and has well established soft and LPS corals and a range of fish and misc. inverts.

The tank is located in a study room but is viewable from both sides via a wall cut out facing the entrance and living room. The sump located directly below the tank and houses a octopus skimmer, a float switch for auto topoff and return/chiller pumps. Beside the sump there’s a refugium with some calerpa.

The overflow is located up one end of the tank and is completely hidden by the clever use of sandstone. There’s also 2 rocks that are mounted out from the sandstone creating 2 ledges. The sandstone idea blends in very well with surrounding rock and is an excellent way of hiding things in your tank.
