What is the cost of running the tank? Not the equipment and livestock but once everything is set up, what is the average cost per month for running giant setups like these?
Once the systems set up and running, and I can’t give you a figure, but the running costs don’t seem much worse than a smaller system to be honest. You just have more water.

Yes you need more of certain additives etc. but I haven’t noticed any significant change to the electricity bill, or maybe I’m in denial! Lol

The main cost is buying the equipment in the first place and then the live stock

Hows the tank? I got my 400+ gallon tank delivered and come to realize that ecotech products are out of stock because they are shut down. I think its going to be a long cycle for me and honestly I am fine with it

I think the tank will be in place in about 6 weeks, need to wait until the frame and the walls are in place, seriously can’t wait.

Did you end up documenting your build? Any photos to have a look? :)
 

How do you run activated carbon on your reef tank?
