Here we are again with a new build for my new Elos 70. This will be in my basement with my main display (https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/sponsored-project-reef-by-elder1945-200g.291796/)
This will be a fun and exciting build so join along for another fun filled build.


So much more to do for this build but the tank is in my shop! I will be re launching my YouTube channel with build logs and so much more with this and many more builds.

I appreciate comments and criticism as there are things to learn in the hobby every day. If you have a question or a suggestion please be sure to post them!

So 80% of the gear is on its way.. Still need to pick a few things but this will happen over the next few weeks.

Tank made it! Packed well and arrived safe. First overall impression is just sheer amazement at the quality. Better pic's on the way just needed to check for cracks or breaks :).

First few issues of this build or things that need to be done right away.

1. This will be the location of the system. I have some holes to fill in the wall and re paint this should be quick. It may look a little tight in the pic but there is quite a lot of room here for what I am going to do.

2. My gaming PC is in the way of the view of the system. I am going to be moving it into a wall mounted case.

Wall mounted case for my PC I will have to mod it a little :).

New location of the PC.

This should be all easy to do so I can start this build.

Now comes the fun part of figuring out what I want to put inside of this system :)

Polyp Labs is an amazing company with some amazing products and wanted to share my experiences with them. I have a bunch of there products on the way to help support this system and my others. As for Orphek the lights are just good and run them on this system and project reef.

superscribed to your channel and would like to see some of Your company projects not just reef stuff ? BTW am I reading it rite Cerebra Vll ?
Yes! I am working all of this out now... I have ordered a few more cameras and I am working out the workflow with getting footage and so on. I will be making a channel ad soon then a few build videos. It is going to be fun and people seem to like watching me build stuff.. Also considering that aquarium related builds make up less then half a percent of what me and my shop builds there is quite a lot of content.

Following!
:) Thanks!

Ha! the Eagle 55 is a great Pallet jack so much so I own 2 :p

Why two Atlantik compacts vs one full size?
The overall aesthetic of the system will be better with 2 compacts. It will also help with some testing I am doing with the different Orphek lights as I run V4 over my other system. There are a few other lights that I want to try that Orphek makes as well.

My main display with 2x Orphek V4

That Core P5 case is pretty nifty. Are you just leaving it open?

Thanks!

I was just looking at a elos70 I have heard good things about their tanks
Yes do it they are amazing and well made but the big sell is the overflow and return.

This is my kind of work ! ! ! LOVE it ! ! !
:)

No, The case comes with some janky acrylic that I will be re making and doing some extra stuff with.. Still working on a few ideas... TBH i kind want to do a custom loop on this PC but time is never on my side.
