corner bowfront

I have a 200 gallon reef tank. . . . Love it . . No problems at all. My girlfriend wants to turn her 54 gallon corner bowfront into salt. Any advice? I seems like a bad idea.

why would it be a bad idea?

you have to start from scratch with rock and sand but generally the filters can be used for it and if she has a wet/dry she can use the overflows and build a sump/fuge if she really wants to

Well. . . Im not sure if you have ever seen one of these . . . But there is very little room under the tank for filtration, skimmer, top off, etc . And because the front has such a curve to it, the magnet cleaners won't work. So I am imagining maintenence will be insane.

You can check out my 54 build under saltwater aquaria section called Tim's 54 going reef.

The magfloat works great for me even with the curved glass.
