Thank you! Sorry for the delay we just completed the move to El Paso! But I actually got on the nano-reef forum and talked to them on their. I don’t know who manages it but they told me that none of the panes on this tank were tempered. You can get on their and message them if you want. They answered within a few days and were pretty helpful. If you have any other questions let me know!Looks great thanks for the inspiration, I’m looking at this tank for a RBTA/ clown harem tank. They are growing like weeds in my main display and crowding out my SPS and monti’s. I like how you drilled the tank. I’m thinking about drilling on the side and doing a simple overflow and intake line in on the same side. So it’s super clean looking. Question for you, Did you find any data stating that they use tempered vs non tempered glass on any of the panels? I’d hate to buy the tank and drill into a tempered glass.
I contacted Orphek about it and they said it wasn’t worth the time, that it wasn’t that big of a difference. As soon as we get the rest of our household goods I’m going to put my Blue Plus back on, they should be here tomorrow! I’ll update with pictures as soon as I can!I would contact orphek, you might be able to get a diode from them to diy a replacement in a different color, or you might be able send them the light bar and have them service it.
as for t5s - a 4 bulb would be fine on such a narrow tank I would think, six bulb would give you more bulb choices for blending spectrum though.
anyways - it’s such a nice little tank, I have a uns waiting to be setup still.
and El Paso is a cool town, I stayed there for about a year as a construction contractor at fort bliss
Thank you! I wouldn’t have gotten the stand either knowing what I know now, so definitely don’t blame you! Looking forward to checking out your 75s!Great looking tank! I found your thread a bit ago doing research on UNS tanks. I have a a 75s build in the process but also considered the 90L. I also considered the UNS stand but went against it based on what you had to do to get a sump in. Great to see these tanks being shown off. There's only a few of that I'm away of on R2R.
