Usually, I equate "modern" to uncomfortable. Modern designs look great in aquariums, but when you just want to stare at a crab for an hour a chair is nice.

No sump = no chance of accidental flood. The whole tank (aside from the light) uses Tunze 9010=21W + Tunze comline 3166 with Turbelle electronic=12W and two Vortec reefcrest mode at 20W. 76 Watts for 120 SPS tank. No chiller or heaters in use at the time. BTW light is 400W lumenarc G-mann coral on IC electronic ballast on light-mover. The tank is a vodka + sugar driven bacterioplanktonic system. Skimmer is set on "plankton-safe" mode. Had a 2 inch wave going pretty consistently but the tank seemed to be stressing too much for my comfort level. Too bad, the corals seemed to love it.
The Tunze 3166 is a pretty cool unit. Fully adjustable flow with the Turbelle. Surface skims, houses mangroves, can fluidize media in the filter belle, holds Osmolator sensors, and provides some flow, AND is pretty energy efficient. The skimmer puts out darker skim in plankton-safe mode, interestingly. The tank is virtually silent except for the hum of the Vortecs. Let me know what you think.

Cam, cool find on that bottom tank. I wish I had the space to put in cushions on 3 sides of my tank so I could just chill out and watch up close. Minimal is artistic, but I'd rather just let the random macroalgae, polyps, tubeworms and the like overgrow the rocks...so it helps if there are a lot of them (the rocks). Modern doesn't have to be minimal, I'd rather see reefers utilizing modern technology towards an artistic end. I that vein, I just signed up for a sexchange operation so that I can have Aquabucket's children. Dude, that is the coolest application of modern media to a tank I have ever seen. That is MIT Media Lab caliber. I really dig it. You got any threads explaining how it is constructed?
