Aquarium final finish

The aquarium is finally done. I have been discussing the frames and hatches a lot with the carpenter and we ended up doing it in aluminium and acrylic plates. The plates are fixed to the wall with velcro glued and nailed to to wall. It think is looks great with a nice minimalistic touch. And most importantly it is easy to access the aquarium. Yesterday the two shark egg hatched so now there are two very small almost white sharks in the tank.

The aquarium is in place

The aquarium is in place and it looks great. It is custom built and ordered from Decocean, who has been great in aswering questions and have great service. Now I am beginning the process of filling it with cold salt water. The reverse osmosis reactor is working full time. I have cheated and added 100 liters of rain water too and 75 liters of real seawater from Rågeleje. A DIY solution for the lightning is also in place. It is made out 3 X 1o W outdoor spots. I am ot sure it is enough even though cold water tanks need less light.

Everything is ready for the new tank. A DIY solution for the lightning is also in place. It is
