+1 great looking tank, having had a 24" deep tank for close to a year now, I think I'd have gotten along just fine with the same foot print but at 14"-18".

What are the dimensions of the tank?

Love the rimless design and the center overflow.  Who made the tank?

A great many threats face reef environments.  An informed marine aquarist can be part of the solution, not a contributor to the problem.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Tony maybe one day I'll get some doors. Right now I like the open look.

Built the stand myself. I'm not a carpenter by any means. I wanted to try my hand at it.

Tank is 60"x24"x16"

Tank was built by glasscages. I know a lot of people bad mouth them but I'm very happy with this tank.

I had them Install the overflow In the center, (2) 1"returns (1) 1-1/2" drain.

Very nice.  I too love the shallow/open look.
Good to know that Glasscages served you well.  I did not want to take the risk based off reviews but glad yours worked out.
Those AI's; wouldnt you get more coverage mounting them end to end?

Lets get some sump, livestock and plumbing pics!

This is my second tank from them also no issues.  This tank although only 16" high it's really heavy. 3/4" glass all around. I will update soon with pics.
