Manhattan Reefs noelskii's 65 Rimless Upgrade

Thanks to Manhattan Reefs and Hagen! I Won this tank/stand setup from the 2012 Spring Frag Swap Raffle.

Equipment List:

Tank: DSA Nano Neo Pro 65 (36 X 20 X 21)
Movement: 2 Mp10W ES
Return Pump: Deep Blue Triton 4
Skimmer: Bubble Magus NAC 7
Sump: 20H
Lighting: Widdy's DIY LED
Media: GFO/Carbon in TLF 150
Controller: APEX


Most of the stuff came from my 34 Gallon Solana. I did a 1 day tank transfer on Sept 4.

Unloading the tank from Con-way Shipping Company:













Picked up Widdy's old DIY LED (thanks!! ):


Placed tank where the Solana used to be and added new sand/water:




Inside the stand:




Quick shots of light and tank:

Thanks! I already added some more clamps after the trial run. I could never find the right size herbie clip, I already bought 3 different sizes and none of them fit LOL.. I'm just gonna keep an eye on the rusting and change them out when they do.

looks like 3/4" or 1" at most. Use a pair of linesman or pliers to make them tight
