So I started 15 months ago with a 24 G JBJ and like everyone else got the Saltwater bug.  I posted my 20g Long AIO build, it's coming along great but I was also building another tank.. Both tanks will replace my current JBJ.  Here is the build as of today of this one. 

It's a 12 Gallon Mr. Aqua rimless tank.  It measures 36"x8.5"x9.5. 
I had the stand built, it's 37" long 36" high. 
Tank was drilled for overflow on left, return on right.
Sump 20 long, with three sections, glass cut and installed by me.
Light is 36" Ecoxotic Panorama Marine 12,000K White/442nm Blue with dual dimmers.
Light mount custom built by me.
Skimmer SCA-301.
Return Pump Rio.
Reefkeeper Lite.
Titanium Heater.

I wanted to share, it's been a blast so far....

Of course those are with the lights cranked up, so I will for sure use the dimmers...  I will update as it moves forward...  Thanks for viewing....

Thanks. I designed the stand to fit larger tanks if I decided. The top is 18" deep, plus has to fit the 20long and stuff inside..

Cool, I can see doing something like this, a long tank with little volume and a relatively large sump.  Very cool.  
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler -A.E.
57 Gallon RImless build in progress check the thread before if becomes boring and just full of nice pictures of colorful coral!
