MikeC’s Custom Reefoman 140G Rimless Peninsula Build

Let me first start out by saying this build would not be posible if it was not for Marek (Reefoman) and his impeccable,outstanding,quality artwork.

Marek's tanks are always built as if they are going in his own living room.
His kindness and professionalism does not stop there, help & suggestions for lighting and plumbing was of great help and appreciation.

So thank you Marek

Now on to the tank:
48x30x22
Rimless
Peninsula
Star fire glass (3 sides)
Custom External overflow.
Drilled for closed loop (2 holes in the bottom,2 in the back mid level & two are over the top in the back)
75 gal sump
30 gal conical settling tank.
Darkroon Flowwolf 1"/6 V3.0 Digital Flow Diverter
Iwaki 30 for return
Reeflo dart for closed loop
SRO-XP-5000sss cone
Plumed so I don’t have to lift buckets for water changes anymore.
Diy screen top
Total water volume 210gal


Being built


Then it was time for me to build the stand


ATI Powermodule Hybrid
I was originally going with Halides but after seeing this light on Reefomans tank I knew I had to have it.
Keeping in mind the new stand was built low enough to hang MH just incase


Some of my DIY stuff,skimmer stand,Top netting,closed loop over the back.


Sump room


Some stuff left over from my 120


The Aquascape


Full tank shots


Thanks for looking guys
let me know what you think

Congratulations on your new tank. The tank looks amazing in every which way, the cleanest built ever. Very well thought from start to finish. Beauty full, best of luck and thanks for sharing. Pictures are awsome as always.
