    Those are absolute beasts! They must push around a huge amount of water!

    yep - The RFGS200 has an Optimal Suggested Flow of around 1,800-2,500 GPH, but they can go well behind that.

    Yes it is! Just wait until we actually get to the build out of our show tanks, lol!

    Please do come by! You’ll love it I’m sure :)

    Thank you!!! And yes, we’ll need all we can get!

    I used to run a smaller version many years ago and you’re right they are amazing. The spread for a closed loop is incredible.

    After seeing the proposed layout and plan for the new mega store, it might be wrong not to plan a vacation around seeing the shop!!!

    Sounds like a good plan to me :)

    Thank you so much and not at all! I’m sure that’s completely normal. Just don’t mention it to a non reefer, they might think you’re just a bit crazy... but then again that’s why we do this right? Hahaha

    Sounds like a fantastic idea! We will see you then :)

    Very cool. Looking forward to this. What is your plan for HVAC? I can provide some suggestions for you.

    We have 3 units installed totaling 37.5 tons. Hopefully that'll be enough :)

    Great pictures of the progress - thanks for sharing!!! It may be just the camera angle, but the tanks in the new farm seem like they're a lot deeper than the one's in your current farm. Why did you choose to make the change and won't they be harder to work in? How many gallons are the farm tanks?

    You're right... at least 28" but looks like it may be 30++"

    I guess they plan on keeping some MASSIVE Mother Colonies happy.

    We appreciate you following along! They are quite a bit deeper, and yes these will be more difficult to work on, but these "display" tanks are not for working in, but for planting and allowing the mother colonies to grow out into huge fragable colonies. These will supply our raceways, which will eventually become sellable frags. These tanks are 96" x 60" x 30" = 750 gallons. Our raceways will be 96" x 48" x 16" = 350 gallons

    30" is exactly correct! And yes, that's the hope :)

    They are already in the process of coming down... Much of the 900 has been taken down already for the most part.

    Thank you so much! Just keep coming back to check on it :)

    Darn! Well, I'm sure your next displays will be just as nice. I should have made it happen earlier though.
