Still waiting for the mounting, but I had to transfer the animals to the new tank.

Sump is almost ready, just need to organize the cables and add the refugium.

Hi! Denadai's tank is deactivated, I don't know why. But his tank was very beautiful indeed. His tank was SPS predominant, and mine might be soft or lps dominant. I'm still thinking about that.

I'm using the version "mini" of Siporax. It's smaller and recommended for a 50 liter tank.

Tomorrow I'll add a small refugium inside the sump with chaetomorph.

How did you take a picture from the future??

Personally, I'm offended. Tom's thread is gold. Platinum, even.

I really like the stand and overall cleanliness of this. I wonder though about the lighting spread.
Is that what you intended? I would move it farther AWL to get better spread or switch to a sol from the nano.

It will be cleaner when I intall the new mouting. But it will take 15 days do manufacturer. I don't want any cables appearing!

My concern is about nuisance algae growing in the sump. I'm thinking in add a black acrilic in the side where the light is stronger. Did you do something to avoid light in all the sump?

Twan,

Take a look at the project in the page 1. I know a guy that build fixtures and I asked him to make one for me, just like the project. I'll be able to move up. I had to transfer the livestock to the new tank so I couldn't wait and resolved to use the mounting that came with the fixture.

He sad he needs two weeks more to make the mouting.

Sorry about my english!

Thanks!!

No, it's not hard, but you have to clean just like the other glasses. My rocks are very easy to move, so I just move them to the side to clean everything bellow.

I do the same thing and move them to the side to clean and move them back. Then I use a small siphon hose to Siph out the detritus. Simple and easy!

Ah I still need to take a picture of my refugium for u to see. I just use a black basket and cut to fit the inside sump and added the chaetos. That's all. Cost only $1.84 for the basket. :P
