Welcome to R2R Nick. We love pictures, and you have some really great ones.
Hi everyone, I'm Nick.
I have been in our hobby for 13 years. Replaced several aquariums and systems.
Started with 18 gallons with 4 T5 lamps and soft corals (mushrooms, parazoanthus, xenia and sea anemones. Without a skimmer and no filtering, on weekly changes of 20% water.
But I could not contain stony corals.
Second 25 gallon tank.
Water from the Mediterranean Sea (diluted to the desired salinity), Deltek skimmer, refugium with haethamorpha, 120 watt Chinese LED lamp and the vodka method, well, 20% weekly change. For a long time everything was fine, until, due to, apparently, the quality of sea water, the system collapsed.
Third tank (current).
26 inch cube tank with sump. Total volume 75 gallons.
- T5 x 4 - Aquatic-Life.
- Kessil A360UW with a controller.
- TMC Aquabeam 1000HD with DIY replaced LEDs.(was only blue and white. Replaced Cree new generation LEDs (Cool White, Blue, Royal Blue, Hyper Red and UV)
- Skimmer from Korallen-zucht.
- 2 x Ecotech MP10 Pumps
-2 x Tunze 6055
Salt and denitrification according to the Tropic Marine system. With daily compensation of KH and calcium from ESV.
The system was launched 13 months ago. All things grows. With the addition of Kessil, everything began to grow 3 times faster (Bravo Kessil).
If until mid-September, dosed 10 ml daily ESV, now 30 ml. daily.
- 3 Chromis
- Blue Powder Tang
- yellow zebrasoma
- Zebrasoma welferum
7 peppermint shrimp (yes, and I have a problem with aiptasia)
