Thought I'd share some pictures of my latest build. Put together my take on the Fluval Edge. The tank sits on my sons desk as if it were stand-alone but overflows are drilled through desk into cabinet below. Personally I think its a better size than the Fluval Edge and get the clean modern look but can still have a sump. The AI Sol sits flush on a glass panel sealed off from the salt but heat-sink still exposed from above. The bamboo wood stand completely encloses the back workings of the overflow etc. Only the intended display portions of the tank are exposed/visible. See Flickr set at link below:

Nicest nano Ive seen. Looks really sharp. Gunna look even better with corals. I think it would be a really cool species tank too, ie zoas, rics, acans.. just sayin.
