Giant Reef Tank Install

We had an amazing experience watching a ground-up custom install of a very large (540g) reef tank when the owner selected our fixtures as his lighting solution. Christopher McKee, president of Ft. Collins-based In-Situ, went with the Reef Slope in a six-pendant array to light the 8 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. aquarium, which will be home to an array of SPS corals. Jeff Harris, owner of Denver-based AquaMart, oversaw the project. The tank is an in-wall installation with pass-through visibility, allowing guests at the office a view from one side and employees the other.

We took some pictures over the course of the project to document the transformation. It will be fun to revisit the tank periodically to see how the livestock take hold. I’ll post more pictures as the stocking continues, and then periodically afterwards to watch it grow.

Here’s a sneak peak behind the scenes:
