The main tank is directly stack on the sump. This is a fun and new design. The flat tank is viewing from the top down. The inhabitants in the tank will be clams, mushrooms and some shrimps.

Glass bar as a pillar to strengthen the main tank that the wall thickness is only 5mm to reduce the weight.

This is an unique design by myself. I am not good in DIY and no any tools to make it. I order it in LFS.

Very cool! Looks like you have put a lot of thought into this. Can’t wait to see it up and running.

very nice!
great looking design!

when you drilled the tank how did you do it?
and how does the small hole prevent siphon?

The tank maker drill it not me. :D
For the syphon, you can do a test. A pipe that has a small hole above the water cannot make a syphon.
