Hello to all! I've been wanting to start this thread to document my progress on my new tank and also receive some constructive criticism. I have been wanting to build a larger mixed reef tank for awhile and have now started to put my plans into actions. I currently have a Biocube 14 and just want something larger with more room for corals! I think I have done well with the biocube having it up and running for 2 years. But now I'm learning that I must have more! I've actually been researching, gathering info, and for the last 3 months I've been collecting equipment and building my stand. Just got a late start on posting! Pictures coming soon! Just in case I never mentioned, my name is Brandon! Equipment list: -75G Deep Blue Sea rimless tank -DIY custom stand (the premaid stands were too short and the doors were not big enough to get my big self in comfortable to work on stuff) So I made my own --Custom 48" 5 chamber sump from 302 Aquatics with Algae scrubber. --Custom color matching ATO container --(2) Ecotech Radion XR30W Pro --(2) Ecotech RMS tank mounts --(2) Ecotech VorTech MP10 powerheads -- Ecotech Vectra M1 return pump -- Ecotech Battery Backup -- Ecotech ReefLink (to control all the goods) -- Kessil H80 Tuna Flora refugium light with gooseneck -- Bubble Magus Curve 5 protein skimmer -- UV Sterilizer -- Neptune systems ATK auto top off --(2) Eliminator Lighting Power Centers (To individually cut on/off power to every single electronic) 16 switches total -- DIY electronics cabinet(in process of building. Will post pics soon) ---Future--- --Planning on Purchasing all my rock, sand, etc from Tampa Bay Saltwater! They have a complete package of rock/sand out of the gulf that they harvest along with my cleanup crew and other random hitchhikers/corals! So excited for this step in the setup! --Replace the 3 filter socks in the sump for new containers that will allow me to but whatever media, chemipure, etc that I want. I'll use the filter socks while cleaning and doing a water change to catch all the big nasty stuff. -- planning on eventually installing a 2 part dosing system to fine tune, stabilize tank and make life easier. I think that's everything. I'm taking notes, making a list and going tomorrow to get all the plumbing, unions, valves, etc that I need to get this system up and running! Progress !!!
