Dear readers,
I am GlennF from Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

I like to introduce mij tank in here

It's a mixed reef with about 180 species of corals and invertebrates living all together. This include discosomas, soft corals, lps, nps and feather stars.

It's (3 sides) free standing / look through / room divider tank.

Until december 2004 it was a fresh water tank inhabited with Malawi cichlids. In Dec 2004 I drilled a hole into the bottom, placed a sump and filled it with saltwater. This was the start of my saltwater adventure.

Nice job on the tank glennf.

I got to live in Utrecht for a year during my studies, back before the Euro. I loved how you could literally ride a train (or a bike for that matter) for twenty minutes and have a completely different flavor in NL. Only made it to Rotterdam a couple times. I'm happiest here in my mountains, but I really enjoyed my time there.

Excellent!!
Are these pics taken in the water?

Oh, and Glennf, your record keeping skills could/should land you a job with an accounting firm.
Your tank is spectacular. Would love to see view from different rooms.
While you're thinking about that, I've got to ask Seri how many gallons are in 1500 litres.:rimshot::read::idea:

1500 liters = (1500/3,78541178) = 396,25 Gallons
