    I wanted a peninsula Style aquarium about 250-350 litres and more on the shallow side then more previous aquariums so i decided on 1200 x 450 x 450 mm

    The closest thing on the market to what i want is a Red Sea Reefer Peninsula P500 but its a little over my budget and not 100% what i wanted so i decided to make one myself.

    I wanted to ability to easily change the cabinetry to suit whatever the house will look like over the next 5 years access to both and back of the sump if needed.

    Have a manifold so i can gravity feed my, Chiller, Algae Skimmer, (reactors in the future)

    Here is how its going so far 1 week in, if it had the choice again i would of chosen dressed pine over mdf any day of the week and still might change over the next year but its fine for the current build
