Hello to all,
I am starting to build a new aquarium.It will have 100(L)cmx60(l)cmx50cm(h).Front and side panels will be extra clear galss 10mm,bottom and back pannels will be 10 mm normal glass.I will glue 2x10mm pannels for the bottom.I will use a bean animal overflow.Monday i have to order the glass and i am not shure if i should make it rimless or not.please, give me an advice.The same, i don't know what silicone i will use: transparent or black.I will use 32mm bulkheads for the overflow and 26mm for return.Can you tell me where i should drill the holes to be safe?

From my last post, i made a lot of changes ....I moved in a new apartment, and here i started my new aquarium.The system was started 3 mounths ago.I used dry rocks,and a few pices of live rocks from my old aquarium,and live sand;as for salt, i used red sea.I started the aquarum with a mix of biodigest and special blend from microbe-lift.The aquascape is minimal, so i created 2 towers from pices glued with reef bond.

I'm not sure why nobody responded to this thread until today. That's an impressive build and the finished tank looks great!

Please post more pics and info. What does the sump look like?
