    dudester's 450g office tank

    Mike's tank is located in the waiting room at his office, and can be viewed from three sides. The water drains at the far end, which is adjacent to a fishroom that houses all the equipment. Lighting is 3 x 400w 10,000K bulbs, with VHO actinic supplementation. A huge sump was shoehorned under the tank, and at this time a refugium is not incorporated. A Tunze Wavebox provides back-n-forth motion, and a closed loop creates the flow.

    The cabinets are only accessible with a magnet to release the latches. Very neat feature for a public area.
