Starting this new thread to share the new tank build of my system.

 

Idea / concept of setup

After all the years in the hobby reefing from a small 2 ft tank, to a current 6ft tank in my home. It has always been a dream to have a beautiful large reef tank in my dream home surrounded by garden and natural. Luckily , I am able to fulfill this dream in the early stage of life with the support of my family and friends.

The concept of having a dedicated Fish room is something many reef addicts like me always dream of, and the opportunity of turning this crazy idea into a reality strike when we got our new place.

While searching around on the internet for some ideal, and inspiration of my new setup I came about this photo of a 3D wall mount aquarium and it strike me to have a similar concept on my new tank.

Why not that fantastic? I thought aquamedic is something awesome.

Never consider schuran? I'll feel.schuran despite being a very old brand but the design fits a big tank.
