RennjiDK Posted January 13 Share Posted January 13 (edited) I tried to shop around for a decently sized low iron rimless tank. Everything I could find under $800 was in the 24", 12-20 gallon range. I have my old IM Nuvo 30l reef tank which I've been trying to sell forever and decided to just go with it. The dimensions are great, but as an AIO, It's only 9" deep, so out come the razor blades. Cutting out this false wall and half wall was the majority of the work. These parts were very seriously sealed in. I broke several utility knives trying to get through all the silicone. The baffles were much easier, as they were basically free floating on the back wall afterwards. A few scores and some generous thrashing got them free. Here's what I'm left with, a 36"x15"x13" low iron rimless for about $300 ($450 retail). I still have a good bit of clean up and painting to do (see the refugium light cutout in the back coating). I'll be updating this thread regularly as the build progresses, if you'd like to follow along. In the next few weeks, I'm building a solid pine dresser/bedroom stand, setting up a diy Co2 system using commercial welding equipment, and may or may not be adding a custom acrylic corner sump. As for right now, I'd love some stocking ideas. I want to do a single species schooling/shoaling tank with some ottos and shrimp for clean up.
