_______________________________________Original Message______________________________________________
Sooooooooo...

Upon anticipating a move... I broke down my 34 gallon Solana.. I've been tank-less for a little while. Well the itch is back... and I need to scratch it. I've graduated from AIO to a "real" sump! My tank is still on order, and I still have a lot to plan.

2 important things will be covering the overflow in something that can be scraped. My biggest gripe on my 34 gallon solana was the textured back wall. I want no coralline on the glass or overflow. I also need to bring it on this scape. I got a little lazy last time around and ended up with a good scape... This time I want a great scape!

I have a few decisions to make.
1) Do I want to go with 1 MP40, 1 MP40 + 1 MP10, or 2 MP10's. I'm pretty sure an MP40 would be enough flow, but I'd like to do something to randomize the flow more. What do you guys think?

2) Controller/Auto Dosing? I'm debating if I want to add a controller and possibly dosing. I don't know the first thing about auto dosing... so I'm not sure If I'll go this route. The Profilux and Reefkeeper add additional functionality to the Aqua Illumination set. Do I really need thunderstorms? No.. but I want them!

3) Should I upgrade the sump pump? The standard pump is a Quiet One 4000.

4) Livestock plans: I'd like to have a nice pair of Picassos, a pair of Helfrichi firefish, a Tail Spot Blenny, and... I want to have a singular showcase fish. I would do another Blue Spot Jawfish in a heartbeat, but I'm not sure how much sand I'm going to have in this tank. I would like my tank to be as peaceful as my last tank.

Congrats on the new tank.

I'd go with two MP10's. Both on the back glass, one on each side of the overflow.
Yes, one MP40 would be enough but you would likely have dead spots. Besides, the price would be about the same.

The QO 4000 should be more than enough. You don't want the water going through the sump too quickly. Although in my experience the "Quite" one pumps are anything but quite. If moneys not an issue, may want to consider going with an Ehiem pump. They are supposed to be the quietest around.

HTH,
GOod luck!

I'm debating between artisian 60 or solana xl 60 at the moment.. Lol decision decision.

Med you should go with 2 x MP10 on each side so that there is no dead spot at all. 1 on top and 1 on bottom on both sides.

You can try to find some MP10 on the classified hardware section. I see them go low as 125.00 often.

Thanks Kris. I was leaning toward the 2 MP10 route. I'll give the pump a try and then swap it if it is too loud.

I looked at the artisan, but it was only 50 gallons. It also seemed pricey when a stand was added. It has LED lights, but I really liked the Aqua Illumination LED's after reading up on them. The Solana seemed to give me more of what I wanted at a better price. I may end up upgrading the sump at some point though... we'll see.

I'll check him out. Thanks!

I also realized I need to figure out what substrate to go for this time... that and what salt to use. Is there an updated guide to salt mix evaluations?

I will probably upgrade to the solana xl 60 probably next year lol. I want to follow along on your progress just incase of mod or diy you will do. Hopefully the price will go down a little bit more by that time.

What kind of glass is that tank? Let me know if it's quite as the 34g solana ok. Thanks

ha ha... i get to be the guinea pig? The XL's are starphire glass as well...

So minor setbacks...
My LED's are delayed as they are back ordered. It could be up to two weeks.

It also turns out that the company where I bought my Solana from was having it shipped directly from current to me. Because Current is in California, I now have to pay tax on it... *sigh.

No one near me is an aquavitro dealer for seachem. I want to use the new Salinity salt, but NO ONE carries it. This problem is compounded as you can only get it from a LFS. I'm going to have to see if I can have someone order for me.

Lastly I ordered 120lbs or reef cleaners dry rock. and 2 MP10w ES.

Haha that's sound good on MP10s

When I get my tank I will add 4 mp10es lol. I need to start saving up money now as we speak so for the moment I will just gonna have to drool all over your tank. :)

I also like your setup on your led fixture. Does it really have thunder lighting? Make me wanna sell my led now and get one like yours

Any picture of the tank yet? Did the stand comes with the tank or separated? I want to get the tank and stand combo around 900.00

4 MP10s :o I will see how the flow is...If I need more, i'll bite the bullet. I was researching your fixture and found the Aqua Illumination vs Maxspect PAR comparison.
http://www.reefcentr...d.php?t=1841197
I then found this article with some comparisons to the other available fixtures.
http://www.advanceda...10/5/aafeature2
Needless to say I was sold.

The stock controller only lets you do sunset/sunrise and a lunar cycle for the moonlights (besides independent control of the white and blue light intensity for regular viewing.) You have to get a controller like a Profilux or reefkeeper to simulate a real lunar cycle, clouds, thunderstorms, and rainy days.

I just ordered my tank on Friday. It should be here within a week since Current is delivering locally. I'm going to try to schedule it for next monday. I got it for $950 shipped from premium aquatics(although now I have to pay tax because Current is in California.)

The only thing it doesn't come with are lights, the light hanging arms, and a skimmer.

Another twist... So I will have to wait 2 weeks + for my tank to get here... Sigh... I can. My lights, on the other hand... are on their way to me. MP10's and digital refractometer should be here today.

Thanks Nirvana! I'm concerned with my scape. I want it to be something different. My lights arrive on Monday. I never thought LED would be in my future so quickly! I also need to figure out what level of automation I'm going to go for.

Well considering you've got time til the tank comes in, play around with some scapes with just the rock. Could always drill/epoxy some together and make some cool shapes.

I'd say less is more but you've already got 120lbs of dry rock right?

I'm jealous ... wish I could swing a 60 cube right now. Especially with LED!

I bought 120 lbs but I plan to use half of it if that. I just wanted to make sure I had enough variety for coming up with something. I am most concerned with hoping the pieces work well together and that I can figure out how to stick them together. lol.

It took me 1 hours and 47 minutes to drive 41 miles to pick up some Salinity (gotta love LA traffic...on a Saturday). I'm mixing my first back of SW, but I haven't tested it yet. One thing that struck me... I have two 32 gallon Brute containers for mixing. I realized after filling up the first container, that it was a lot of water... now I'm going to be doubling that for the show tank... This is my biggest reef ever. I hope I'm up to the challenge! (yeah yeah all of you "large tank" folks pipe down).

I also realized how handicapped my RO system was in Portland. I was lucky to get 25 gallons a day out of my air water ice 100 gpd RO/DI. Now it's pushing water out like nobody's business! I absolutely love having an extra room to store the containters/buckets in. And now the Aquariums have their own bathroom too. whoo hoo!

I need to go out today and get another powerhead for the other container. Any recommendations on a powerhead for 32 gallons? I will probably go ahead and get substrate today so I can wash it and have it ready.

I'm almost ready to start... if only I had a tank...

This is where the magic happens... this bathroom is fish only. I've never even used this bathroom before.

I LOVE my digital refractomer. No more squinting and no more uncertainty. This sucker is super easy to calibrate and use.

These suckers are BRIGHT! the controller is a bit finicky. I love the gradual ramp up and down of the lights. I can't wait to see a sunrise on my tank!

Talked to C2 (makers of the AI) and they indicated that there might be a future firmware update that would allow for a bit more show rather than just the sunrise and sunset.
