    Reef Savvy 57 Gallon Rimless Build

    My <1 year old 280 gallon tank is doing really well and is keeping me busy but a few months ago I decided to add another tank to the mix and replace my previous 57 gallon tank with a much higher quality installation. I ordered a 57 gallon rimless (37 7/8 x 18 11/16 x 18 1/2) tank from Reef Savvy and a custom stand from Benner's Woodworking. I hope to have the tank and stand no later than September and will document the build in this thread.

    Mark - I am really excited as well. The tank should look great. It will be a rimless design with with a phantom bottom, ghost overflow, blacked out back, with starfire glass on three sides.

    Billw - I don't think he has started mine. That was another Houston bound tank for someone else.
