Here are a few photos after today's maintenance:
Just realized you got the burnin banana, hows that doing?
Looking good Rick. About time you stop neglecting the tank.
It's doing great.
No kidding! I finally was able to take a full day and do my yearly maintenance lol...
I like the light! very well done! i have always loved yoru products! maybe some day I'll have a reef savvy build too!
Thanks for the compliments!
Awsome build, I have a question for you. I just received my ss-34 and ATO from you. I saw on your MACNA video that you plumbed from the ATO to the sump with RODI line. I want to do that same thing but I was wondering if thats a problem with the ATO water entering just before the final chamber. I am placing my Osmolator 3155 sensor in the return chamber. I was also curious if you used a
Mur-lok Stem Adapter Tube x Hose Stem (http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/mur-lok-stem-adapter-tube-x-hose-stem.html) to connect from the air line to the Mur-lock bulkhead inside the ATO container. My tank and stand are being built but I will for sure share your product pictures with you when I'm done, your craftsmanship is top-notch. Thanks
Thanks for your purchase! We really appreciate it. It is totally fine for the ATO water to enter before the final return chamber. This is why we have the 4 connectors on the eurobracing. Yes you can use that adapter for the ATO. It should connect to the Tunze tubing fine. Just use Ro/di tube inbetween the ATO and sump. We also used 2 x 90 degree fittings on top of the ATO and Sump to make it straight across. http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/mur-lok-ro-elbow-stem-x-push-connect.html
Awesome, that is exactly what I was thinking. Thanks for the info and I really do mean it when I say your products are awesome. I saw somebody else ask you awhile back about you creating a tank cover for rimless tanks. Is that something you are still looking into? If so I would be interested.
I'd second FireEMT's comment on being interested in a cover for rimless tanks.
If not a top. Some sort of tab fit in the corners to make rests for a screen frame. I'm interested in something like that.
I also submitted for custom sump build today too. I have a reef savvy on order and looking for new sump too.
Rick how much for the synergy frag system you always display at meets with ghost overflow 24x24x12
Just curious what the craze is over the ghost over flow. I see people getting custom tanks built with it. Why is that a better option then just have an external overflow? The external over flow has zero intrusion into the display. and can be made with removable weir.
This is a knock on any one serious question, I am having a reef savvy tank built and have zero plans for the ghost.
I totatlly get that it's the best option on a non reef ready tank that is being converted to RR.
Who did u contact to get ur tank built
We had a friend ask us a few years ago to build screen "clips" for him but it not really something we want to do. He ended up just making some on his own with some scraps.
Those frag racks were last years. We are not producing those at the moment and not really sure when or if we will again. The fluorescent rods are expensive.
The majority of people that are buying our overflows are people that are drilling their own tanks or using an existing tank. Custom tank builders can definitely do just an external box like you are talking about, but it also requires the glass to be waterjet cut. Not all tank builders have that capability and it isn't usually cheap to have done. Ours installs in seconds and doesn't require someone to silicone a box to the back of their tank. Your choice was based on what was available to you with a high end tank builder.
That makes sense. Thanks!
If I had to have something in the tank for sure would go that route since it's so small!
FYI I sent for a quote on a custom sump couple days ago.
So the new build has started. We will be be transferring everything from this tank to the new system once it is completed. Here is the new build link https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/the-synergy-reef-v2-official-build-48-x-36-x-30.221122/
That's what I will be using in my brand new rimless SC -150! Also, the tank has already been drilled for a Synergy 20'' Overflow box thanks to Steve over there over @ SC. I Should have it by Sept 10th, the very latest.
Rick, what size Loc line do you have coming out of your tank -3/4?
Just ordered your 20'' external overflow box for my 150 and I was wondering what size Locline should i use?
