Description of the aquarium:
Category:
Salt water
Tank size:
150x50x60 = 450 liters ~ 118 gallons (us)
Specific features:
After many years as a freshwater aquarist I build on just one MW Basin. The pool serves as a room divider, the area with the distance / inflows is designed opaque, so the fish get a breakout area.

The basin has three holes for the inlets and outlets for 120L sump. The outflow quantity is regulated automatically via the water drain "Riff-silent" from Coral Reef Center in Vienna. An absolutely brilliant invention which is quiet and eliminates the setting of the drain. Furthermore, the ball valve of the drain can not grow or become clogged.

The cabinet is a self-made, the built-in furniture panels are made of high-gloss and bolted to a base of Marine Systems. The doors are equipped with cylinder Einbohrscharnieren (especially nice because invisible) mounted. Furthermore, I have placed a 40L freshwater pool in the cabinet.
