Easy-Reef LEAN Aquarium System: 60 Gallon

Regular price $1,650.00 Sale

What is Easy-Reef LEAN

Our Easy-Reef aquarium systems are the most customizable reef-ready aquarium system on the market. However, if you stick to a few standard features, and go with simple components and a lean-and-mean design, you can save more than a couple bucks!

Our LEAN system setups feature left-corner overflows (the most efficient layout for straightforward plumbing), and basic Del Mar stands in either black or white. For filtration, these are equipped with a minimalistic, but functional 24"x14"x16" Eshopps R-100 refugium sump.

You can drive the price down even further by picking clear-glass options for your aquarium sides.


•  Dimensions: 36"x20"x20" (LxWxH)

•  Rimless tank with low-iron glass on the three viewing panels and blacked-out back panel (clear-glass options available to save on cost)
