    ** FLSharkvictim / Custom Rimless SCA 150 Build ***, Mar 26, 2019
  1. FLSharkvictim

    I tested my new sump and filled it with water and I am good to go, no cracks or leaks now it's time to move on with my SCA 150 build! This weekend, I will be plumbing my #Synergy 20'' External Overflow box which means I will be running 3 1.5inch drains off a #EcoTech Marine Vectra M1 RETURN PUMP and for my Turbo Scrubber I will be either purchasing an #APEXCOR20 or another EcoTech Marine Vectra M1 which will run my scrubber and my manifold w/ no problem.

    @lbacha- TRYING TO decide if I want to run my plumbing for my emergency valve on the inside of the cabinet or should I DRILL another 2-inch hole and run the emergency drain as I did with my other two drains?

    Let's talk a little about how I am going to be running my returns on my SCA Rimless 150. At first, I was going to just sell my #EcoTech Marine Vectra M1 and just buy 1 EcoTech Marine Vectra L1's for more flow.
    Decided to change my mind, go figure! I am going to be running for now 1 new ApexCOR20 return pump & 1 EcoTeach Marine Vectra M1 return pump. One pump for each return.
    I think More redundancy never hurts in a build like this one! They are both rated for up to 2000gph! How many of you all run two Return pumps, if so, please let us know what you are running? #2returnpumps.

    *** NEW UPDATE ***

    JUSER=26427]@Bulk Reef Supply[/USER] just shipped the remaining equipment for the rest of my build! After over 2 years of designing of custom designing my system the way I want it, it about to be completed and this build thread will be completed :(

    I will be getting my 2nd #Orphek Atlantik Compact V4 (Gen 2) LED fixture and the #GATEWAY WIFI box so I can control my 2 #Orphek Compact lighting from anywhere in the world. Already have my mounting legs that I bought directly from #Orphek, which i have pictures of the mounting legs above in my thread. Plus, I got 2 Apex optical sensors for controlling my water levels w/ @AVAST Marine Breakout box. Also, got the #WXM Apex Module in order to control my pair of #EcoTech Marine MP40QWD's powerheads. Plus, I will be installing 2 #TUNZE Turbelle Nanostreams 6055 controllable PUMPS that will be mounted in the back of the tank for any missed dead spots and for the return will be running a #EcoTech #Marine L-1.

    YAHOOOO. I just tracked my order and it appears that my shipment will be coming in this sometime next wk. After that, there is only one thing left to complete this 2 YRS design and move on to the next part of this never-ending journey! My Synergy CL-44 Sump and Matching ATO Container. Per Synergy, my sump and ATO 10-gallon container should be ready right around the 1st of February, which is perfect since I AM in the process of a 4-week recurring cycle on 50 lbs of my some of my old school Ultra Premium Fiji live rock that I saved from my last build! I just found that you can no longer get real Ultra Premium Fiji Live rock since it was banned in 2008 or any Tonga Branches which was also banned in 2004 for any type of Export. That's what you have seen an explosion of Artifical reef rock, like your Marco Dry Rock, Real Reef rock, Walt Smith Live rock, which in my opinion, its junk. In my opinion, there is nothing in the world better than Real live rock for your Biological Filtration, especially for a new tank.

    Tristian's Reef: (2019) - 350g Reef Update - Coral Eye Candy!


    Hey everyone I was overdue a reef update. Originally I was going to do one before New Years but life got in the way.

    This year I will be trying to get 1 new video out a week and I will also be doing more ReefTech videos since those were really popular last year.

    Thank You EVERYONE for all the support this past year. Its been an amazing Journey as a youtube creator and fellow reefer. I look forward to creating new original content this year.
