Water is rising ;-))))
Mini project on the side while waiting for the tank to be filled.....
Following 300 DD
Love the stand! Great tank and will be following...
This is how the filter system will be set up.
Prepping the baffles at the end and cleaning everything to be ready in a day or two ;-)
Picture from this morning..... tank is filling up.
Time for salt and Rockscaping as well the bulkheads, plumbing etc.
Sooooo much to do !!!!
Looks great! I think you may want a booster pump for that rodi unit though, the suspense is killing me haha
Gosh, tried them already with no effect. Our line pressure is pretty high already so the Booster pump did not do anything.
So I keep flushing the membrane twice a day to keep the unit as effective as possible ;-)
What skimmer is that and what is in the reactor?
Following along for the ride can't wait to see how the scape turns out
The Skimmer is a SKIMZ Monzter Twin Turbo .........
Great Skimmer with dual pumps. Only caveat it produces some microbubbles, so good baffling is needed ;-)
The Stuff in the Reactor chamber is simply C02 scrubbing media from Jorgenssen through vet medical supplies online.
That keeps my PH up since I constantly battle with elevated Co2 values in the house ;-(
So this stuff helps greatly to maintain PH above 7.8 in the night.
Backwall on the stand is installed. All removable ;-)
Painting will be done in the next days.
The side walls will be installed in a similar fashion.
Also the bulkheads are installed now. Tomorrow I guess I will be able to bring the filtersumps into the stand and cover the sides with foil/tarp temporarily.
Then I will get salt in and mix the water with the big MagDrive ;-)
This pump will also heat up the water at the same time.
Tank keeps filling......
Are you going to tile around the stand?
Starting to get exciting now!! Nothing better than a sexy, fresh, clean glass box to get everyone excited haha
No, actually the tank is not at it's final position ;-(
But I have to get my tank back up and running to get the corals back. At a later point of the built, I will relocate this beast within the room.
So I will either flooring in the final position or carpet around the tank.
Started to powerwash the first 150lbs rock and prepped my aquascape, all layed down on PVC piping as usual ;-)
So that's how far the tank is.........
Need still some more rock and not sure if I leave the scape as is here ??????
