Any reason
1) ur going with DC pumps
2) not going with the new vectors pumps
3) using xr 30 instead of 15s

1) ur going with DC pumps
2) not going with the new vectors pumps
3) using xr 30 instead of 15s
1) Controllable DC pumps are great to run at the specific speed for the tank's plumbing and head pressure.
2) We are planning to upgrade to the new Vectra's (pending tank owners approval of course) The initial equipment list was pre new Vectra's release.
3) That is the plan however we may consider change it up since we are having a lot of success back at our retail store using the Radion XR15's Gen 4 Pros on our 293 Gallon WWC Display Tank

So please follow along, we will be updating with new pics and info if anything changes along the way. Feel free to keep asking questions as things move along in this thread.

Time for some updates on the progress of the Peninsula Style Custom Aquarium (Location 2nd floor living area)



For something this massive we had to bring in the troops. We called in a crane and an crane operator to get the job done.
