Subscribed. I am considering the same tank; subscribed. I look forward to seeing yours develop.
Total brain fart on the who made the sump question.
A local guy out of CT called Custom King made it for me, very nice guy and a pleasure to work with.
I just tried one out and was so impressed I got rid of my 2 vortechs. Only need the one gyre 150 on my tank (40 x 26 x 20) and its turned down to 60%. Flow is better with this one pump then both vortechs at 100%. You'll be a believer too
I'm sure I'll be a believer with a few versions of the gyre, I'm a firm believer that with these types of gadgets and technology, I'll wait till they work out the kinks out and make it more automated.
I've seen them in action, very impressed. I just like to wait. Lol
Finally got the stand done, just needs stain!!
That's a great looking sump! As for the Apex I just ordered mine and would need some tips as far as programming goes. Following this build as well, good progress thus far.
Made a little bit of progress.
Had a busy weekend devoted to the tank!!
Happy Easter Everyone!!!
Very neat setup.
Looking good! When do you plan on getting the tank wet?
Funny story...was going to fill it today and as I was mocking up the RO unit it decides to fall off the shelf and it snapped off a few fittings on the RO membrane housing. So I have parts already on order. So have to wait they come in
That's a bummer!!
These things happen. The parts should be here Tuesday or Wednesday
Cool build! Subscribed!
Long overdue for an update on this build. So here goes.
Had a quick battle making water for the initial fill due to well water pressure being sub par. Well after 3 days and asking people for water it was filled. Started the cycle with some aged live rock from a friends sump.
The cycle took about 3 weeks which I feel went pretty quick. As of this past Sunday I introduced a royal gramma and it's doing very well. Hides in his cave and is eating.
I spent a lot of time organizing and gathering the equipment I felt would compliment this build.
I would estimate that I'm about 180-190 total gallons.
Enough talk here are some pics!!
What kind of lights do you have on this bad boy?
I actually just hung an ATI Dimmable Sunpower over the tank. Spent an hour on the phone with a buddy programming it. I'm impressed
Loving my ATI!
Looking pretty good from back here!!!
