Do have some more pictures somewhere but you get what I mean about not needing sump and skimmers .

A couple of videos linked below :)
It’s a bit cloudy as just added a bit more sand.







Any polite criticism/pointers/advice welcome!

PS I know the artificial decor is tacky but it’ll keep me going until I can get the real thing

Wow that’s pretty stylish, I could imagine my African cichlids in something like that
And sorry, I think I read your other post wrong, I thought you said you had a sump on it! Yeah, I’m familiar with the Juwel Rios, had a 125 a few years ago and I always thought the internal filter system was really good!

I’ve got a 120 litre tank not in use at the moment, but it can’t get a sump or protein skimmer on it. I’m wondering what to do with it tbh (and also what my family will let me do as it’s going to be a while until I have my own place with the price of houses nowadays!) I think a 170 litre plus a 120 litre would be too much weight in my upstairs floor room

You say do they do a marine one ?
A tank hasn’t got to be fitted with a sump to make it a marine setup .
You can turn a bowl into a successful marine setup .
I’ve been running different marine aquariums successfully for around 18 years and never used a skimmer or a sump .
I even managed to breed cleaner shrimp once , had no problem keeping various corals and anemone ,
So the myth about you need a protein skimmer and a sump to keep marine is crap , ( pardon me for swearing ) .
Adequate filter system and correct lighting with right size tank to host what you want to keep , there you have a marine tank .
I’ll try find a picture and show you a project I did to prove a few friends wrong ,
I had a 6 ft long , 500 mm deep and only 4 inches wide wall tank fitted to middle of my wall and ran same system .internal filter at first before changing to external eheim filter , spectrum lighting , ran that successfully for over 3 years as a marine setup .
