And thanks alot

Great looking to by the way!

I would second the montipora encrusting off the ledge would look super awesome.
I have put it on a very old cupboard (somewhere around 100 years old), which I cleared for a sump and plumbing.

Thanks a lot And the monti cap IS happening. Just still haven't found the right one

Sure

The sump is what it is - a place for keeping equipment and growing macro algae, so it's kind of a mess down there

That might be the greatest looking setup I've ever seen. With the antique looking stand, the offset tank and the plant on the left? Brilliant!!!

The white part is what I was curious about. I was thinking the stand was built to accommodate the drop off.

Still a very interesting setup.

I agree, that piece of furniture as a stand looks amazing. I also assumed there was a stand build to accommodate the drop. Funny how pictures don't always tell the whole story.

I like that the drop off is wider than most drop off tanks. Honestly not a fan of drop off tanks, but this one looks sweet!

Thanks a lot to all of you
The stand was chosen because I don't really like how the usual aquarium stands looks. So I picked up an old piece of furniture and converted that into something useful. The guy I bought it from told me that it had been his great grand dads, and he himself was no young man, so I figure it must be at least 100 years old.
@Smatter: The tank is just a regular tank, where I glued in a box in one of the bottom ends, making it into a drop. I then glued on a frame on the bottom, so that the room under the shelf is "invisible".
