    Hi all,

    Looking for your ideas on how you would convert this tank to marine.

    It's a Fluval F60 with a Fluval 306 filter, Eheim external heater and a custom made acrylic lid.

    It would be nice if I could some how hide the intake and outlet pipes behind a weir but I imagine I would have to lose the canister filter.

    How would you do it?

    Plastic vallis or a red/ brown plant in the corner to hide the pipework, and some rocks forming a slightly sloping wall on the opposite side or along the back. But make sure you can see the intake tube easily to monitor it for foreign objects (dead fish) that might get stuck on the intake strainer.
    check out google images for rock walls in reef tanks. I have put 2 links below

    You can also use some glass silicon (glue) and spread a thin layer over the filter pipes, then spinkle white sand or small shells over it. But within 6 months the intake tubes will have coralline algae on them and you won't notice them as much.
