Here is my sca 120. 3 months in
Very nice. Those corals are really starting to fill-in the nooks and crannies.
That’s very nice in only 3 months!
This is what I built to run my tank upstairs. Mind the mess I am still building, adjusting. Just added a predator tank in the back. So I've had a lot of help keeping my water stable
Nice setup, especially only being 3 months old. Love the trigger.
What are you running for lights?
When I had meet other fellow reefer addicts at there homes for club gatherings,I always looked to see how they had ran the plumbing . I wanted to know more about the sump setup . I would ask why they used what they used ,and why did they use it ?
Would you share what your doing ?
How's the coverage on the ap700?
Ok I'm running a reef Flo pump. 1 1/2 pipe upstairs to tank. One inch drain and a one inch emergency. Through 3, 4 inch socks. Then into my reef octopus 200ss Skimmer. On my return I have a 2 inch Flo meter to my Apex. On the return it tees off and goes to my media, carbon and gfo tumbles. It also diverts to my refuguim that I loved so much growing kato and copepods that I added a 40 gallon tank for more room. My kessil ap700 covers a 4x2x2 area with really good results imo. This is my first tank so I am still learning.
I think it's great. But I don't have anything to compare it to
This is the predator tank I added. Now my 120 drains into 125 then into sump
The sump is from Geo's reef. I met him at reef-a-palooza this year while I was getting ideas to build. I was impressed with the build quality and thought it was a great place to start. I'm a plumber by trade so as I've learned and built and rebuilt and rebuilt I think I would build my own sump next time. I am still very happy with the sump it's a well thought out piece of equipment that solid. Support has been fantastic with all my questions
Yeah, Geo has some top notch stuff. You looking good there bro!
Holy cow that's a big hermit!
Any ideas on what you want in that tank other than the puffer?
That's the smaller of the 2 hermits. The puffer was a sad fish in a closing store so I took him home. I usually don't have a plan. When I see something that I have to have I make something work. So no plans on another fish yet. Plus I really need to slow down and let my bacteria catch up to the bio load
Are you not worried about your pinball machines with all that salt in the air?
A little. I will be moving them soon
Just picked up a baby porcupine puffer. I always loved these guys, they just always look happy and it makes me smile. Big puffer is being very nice allowing him to eat the scraps
