    Cool ChernSea Marine Aquarium (150gal)

    Hello everyone. I'm brand new here.
    My brother in law ran this 150 gallon African Cichlid tank for 15 years, and he's given it to me. On the opposite side of the room is my mixed reef "ChernReef Marine Aquarium" (not pictured). Current plan is to run it as a FOWLR tank with Tangs and Angels. My last tank I did everything the expensive way and have learned a lot since then. Doing everything on a budget, and taking it slow. Just posting here to document the build. I ordered the brand new Syergy Reef "Shadow" overflow to run as a bean animal. I just got the "it's been shipped" email. Exciting times. Next up, drill time. vroom vroom


    This is the tank on the day my brother in law and I moved it in.

    I cleaned the glass a little and took a pic with some cheap LEDs and the lights off just to help me daydream better.

    I'd love the newer model. Synergy does great work and solid people. Can't wait to see this build progress!
    120G...someday...

    I just looked up that overflow. HOLY $HITBALLS GRANDMA that's cool.

    I really like these guys myself. Figure one on each end of the tank and no one would likely ever see it.

    The customaquariums one is nice for a canopy tank, but the shadow is the bomb for rimless and you can't bean animal or herbie a single pipe.

    Drilled for the Synergy Shadow and two returns. The tank has a center bar that comes down an inch so I had to install the overflow off center or sacrifice an inch of water level. :/ oh well. the thing invisible anyway, as I'm painting the back black. First coat on!
