hey there reefers…

been a member here for many years,
but i never really put together a build thread for any of my systems over the years.
time to change that!

the title of this thread is an ode to marine depot

most of my equipment has come from them over the years,
but especially for this build about 80% of the items i purchased came from marine depot.
hence the title….

okay, now the good stuff.


equipment:

im 75ext
2 x mp40
vectra l2 return
bubble magus curve 5 dc skimmer
trigger sapphire sump
ati powermodule
reefbrite xho

testing/dosing:

afr for now, will be automating soon so this will be updated.


step one:

putting the stand together and figuring out layout before complete assembly of it…

thanks fishface,
oddly, all of my other stands are black…
figured this white stand would break up the uniformity of the room.

it’s worked out well!

(shout-out james, a local guy here to chicago who helped me with all the plumbing… i live in a condo and his professional work really gave me the peace of mind i needed when dealing with this volume of saltwater, floating in a box, a few hundred feet up in the air)
