Bruzzerfish custom SCA 40 gallon shallow reef

Hey guys just ordered a custom built tank from SCA! I don’t know if the community is aware they do custom tanks. I’ll be doing a build thread to keep everyone updated on my experience with SCA.

24x24x 16H
Rear center overflow
Starfire 3 sides.
Black back glass

I will be building my own stand and still need to get a sump.

So far Steve from SCA has been easy to deal with and very helpful.

Stay tuned for updates. 10-12 weeks before my tank is here!

Finally some progress

Been really busy in the past months and haven’t made any progress until today.

Built the stand today, 39” tall stand, tank fits perfectly on to lo for a clean look.
I need to mount the door and choose a paint color. I’m thinking high gloss white.
Lower section in stand will be for an ice caps sump and the elevated portion for my 5gallon eshopps ato container.

Sealed the seems with silicone and will be painting the inside of the stand with white flex seal just for safety when I comes to spills.

I first emailed support@scaquariums.com, they replied pretty quick. I never called them though. They were really easy to deal with

Unfortunately the tank is on the low end of my priorities right now. Seeing that my current set up is up and running fine. Hoping to have it set up in about a month.

I just ordered a few things to replace the older equipment.

Simplicity aquatics dc120 skimmer
Sicce 2.0 return pump
Korillia nano(for under rock work flow....Barebottom)

Also I painted the inside of the stand with flex seal.(appologiges for sideways pics)

40g turned into an 80g

Hey guys so I didn’t have he heart to downgrade. So that being said I upgraded to an 80g. Traded the 40 for an 80. Here’s a link to that.
