Loving this idea also, so following along. I like the idea of just a shallow tank anyway

going to start unburying the 125 tonight when i get home. couldnt find my camera the other day to take a photo. im thinking (or atleast hoping) that by effectively cutting the tank in half horizontally, it will remove alot of the water weight on the tank itself, so i should be able to leave it rimless without too many issues. i will add a center euro brace just for a bit of extra comfort, but i want it to not have any dead spots in terms of lighting. i forgot to mention that the main reason im attempting this is because i really want my dt 125 to be strictly that..a display tank. also with a 6' shallow frag tank, ill have enough room that once up and running, it should help to pay for my rediculous obsession that is the sw world. this frag tank is going to be in the basement and out of the way, so it wont be a burden on the eyes in terms of taking up the limited living space we have left lol

Very interesting idea. I'd like to see how this turns out. I'm hoping to get a frag tank set up in the near future. Rather scatter propagated corals in the hobby rather than taking them out of our natural reefs!

only thing that sucks is that its not a center overflow design. if it was id just split line-lock and aim 1 jet nozzle in each direction. but i think that im going to cut out 1 overflow, build a small acrylic drain box to go over the holes, then use the other end for the return nozzles.or something similar. i will be tossin in prob 3-4 fish just to keep things going in there. ive always wanted bw clowns and some naked clowns. so who knows, maybe ill toss them in.
