       Projects For The Fish Room And Display Tank



I've always been the kind of guy that tries to "do it himself". I get an enormous feeling of satisfaction when I have managed to successfully build a piece of equipment for my glass reef - and it's not just about saving money. DIYing a project allows you to create something that has been designed and built to cater exactly to your needs. This, for me, is a large part of the interest and fascination I find in the hobby.

Below are a sampling of some the projects, large and small, that have gone toward providing me with the reef system I have always dreamed of. Thank you.
