Is this possible?

Is there any reef tank that with the proper equipment can be self sustaining? Just curious

The biggest, in tank size, I've seen was Greenmaster's 320g build (still in the works haha), but there may be bigger.

Ziggy953's 150 Build errrr....120 Build

That is probably the longest build thread. Came to a pretty sad ending IMO.

Same. Even if it's a tiny Nano.
I think Green's is the largest also.

BTW Cerverii while you can't have a self-supported tank you can have one where you don't need any electronic stuff apart from Powerheads. You can have enough LR to do all the filtration biologically. Needs to be small though so you don't need a skimmer. You'll still need to feed though. And lights of course.

The thank in this article is the closest I've seen: http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2002-07/totm/index.php

Not sure what's happening, I guess he resigned his mod position and hasn't been on since March, even then his posts were few compared to when he was active. Hope all is well and that he's ok though.

The 320g is probably the largest...
