Your thread is such a treat, thank you for all your hard work documenting your build.
I'm sure that everyone extremely anxious to find out your ideas about the new tank that you would be building. Can you elaborate on what you are looking for? What size? Rough dimensions? Anything else that you plan to do differently now that you've had all this experience with this cube (I can't think of a single thing). Cheers!

I know Herbie overflow worked well for you as it does for me too, but why don't you try a C2C with a Beananimal next!?

I have been thinking about a beananimal this time around. My new tank needs to be right up against the wall, so no pipes sticking out the back wall of the tank. I figure I can either have a center overflow drilled at the bottom, or I can have a narrow coast to coast and run the plumbing out the back wall but it would have to go straight through the house wall into the room behind which is my garage and will be my fish room. The gate valves would have to then be in the garage.

What do you think?

You better ask uncle in the bean thread but I think you can run into trouble with horizontal pipes.

Hi Dennis,

Your thread has been the ultimate treat to read...your contemporary and beautiful cube design has served much inspiration for my own reef I'm planning. While I unfortunately don't have room in my condo for a 130g cube, I am planning a 60g cube rimless reef modeled after many of your design principles.

Everything is tentatively planned and ready for purchase -- with the exception of a stand. Quite honestly your stand is bar-none the nicest I have ever seen. I'm shocked that the local-area Houston reefer who built it for you isn't a full-time furniture builder. His work is beautiful! Everything from the stain to the way the aquarium recesses into the stand is exquisite.

I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing the contact information of your stand builder in addition to about how much you paid? I would be very interested in having him/her build a very similar stand for my own setup. Thank you!

I guess the good part is now people can see it in person without knocking down your door.

This thread was my primary inspiration for my current build. I copied your stand design, and even planning the radions over top, LOL! One of my favorite builds!

Hi Dennis, I hope you had a good move and the family is doing great. My 60g cube was put on hold since i sold my house and rented a new house but was not allowed an aquarium. Well im moving into a new house and project is back on track. Ultimately, I'm posting to bump your build thread... still the best build thread i have seen!!
