50,000 litre tank in a boutique hotel (Bangkok , Thailand)

I decide to renovate a 40 year old building and turn it into a boutique hotel with a large marine tank which can be viewed from 3 sides and also from the top .

Tank's size

5 m (length) x 2.5m (width) x 3m (height)

Life support system:

12.75 m (length)x 1.1 m (width) x 1 m (height) for ATS , Mangrove (mud substrate) and refugium ( growing macro algae )

Skimmer: 2.5 m (height) 1.7mx1.7 m (foot print) rated capacity 100,000 litres

Return pumps: Red dragon 230 watts x6

Light : Natural sunlight through sky light roof




Perspective picture of the tank : date of completion June 2017
