    Those are unusual dimensions. I guess explains why it looks like a plain of coral more than the typical wall or pile.
    (63x39x27.5 in inches, for the Metric impaired)
    I wonder. 3 sump pumps, 3 skimmers, 2 calcium reactors. Is that for redundancy or a result of growth from tank to tank, or price / availability issues.
