I've got a thread going on my local forums but figured I'd put this up. It's still very much a work in progress but slowly progressing.
Tank 72 x 36 W x 24 T Miracles rimless tank. central overflow; custom stand built by a local club member.
Lighting I debated LEDs and LED/T5 combos for a while. I would have gotten an LED/T5 combo if I could have but will instead do a 10 x 80 Powermodule as I've found the best color under LEDs. I will miss the shimmer from LEDs and metal halide but the expensive/heat respectively made T5 the best choice for me.
Filtration Protein skimming will be accomplished with an SRO 5000 XP cone skimmer with the Bubbleblaster 5000 pump. This thing is huge and has gotten great reviews from everyone that uses it. 57 W Aqua UV sterilizer. Carbon in a SMR1 reactor
Water Motion I'm a big fan of lots of varying types of water motion. For the return, I'm going with a Reeflo Hammerhead Gold which will feed the reactors, frag tank, fuge, and 2 1" returns. I expect about 2000 GPH to the main tank. I'm also going with 1 Tunze 6105 and MP60 on random on one end, and a Tunze Wavebox along the backwall. I love the up and down water motion that the wavebox provides and with it oriented along the width of the tank, expect a 1" wave at most, which will help with the rimless tank. I'm doing a beananimal type overflow and it's been great so far.
Controller Apex with 1 EB8 and 1 DC8
Support Most of the guts of the system will be in a fishroom I recently had built. 2 sumps totalling about 100 gallons will be tied in with a 60 gallon frag tank. I have a 160 gallon salt water reservoir and a 50 gallon brute freshwater reservoir in the room. Water will be produced by a 150 GPD RO/DI.
Additives RO water topoff will be via a Spectrapure LM3. I have an Ebay 3 part doser for dosing 2 part. I'm also planning on small water changes with the Genesis water change setup. I'll plan on about 10 gallons a week to start. I'll also likely dose Lugol's and TM pro coral.
400 gallon system in the works.
