This is Gizmo waiting for me to get the tools out again. If I’m working on anything he is intently interested with his nose constantly in my way. I think he is very jealous of my thumbs.

This build started because my Red Sea 250 started leaking, figured I had a good excuse to upgrade. Picture of old tank.

New SCA 150 has arrive! Had to build a ramp and use a block and pulleys to get it down the stairs. Live in a small town and most of my neighbors are to old to help. thought about asking my students but not sure if I want them knowing where I live. Worked out well and I’ll probably use the same method to get it up on the stand.

After the RS started leaking I moved everything to two forty gallon breeders. been about eight months of managing everything by hand no automation. Not a bad practice If your are home often.

This is the utility room where my sump and frag tank will be. The plumbing is run under the raised bathroom floor. Bottom tank will be a forty breeder sump/frag upper tank will be for frags feed from the sump. upper sump will have two HOB skimmers. not a big room, so have to use space wisely.

the main goal of this build is to save money and use all the parts I’ve been collecting for years.

05/08/ Little over two months since switch over. Everything doing well but did have a dino outbreak, got it under control and time to just sit back and enjoy. I will update the tanks progress every few months.

built a T-5 fixture for the frag tank. Blue and purple plus. Really like the color. Now i’m thinking maybe the DT needs the same?
