I know that this is a nano forum dedicated to nano reefs, but I would like to share my tank progress with the members of nano-reef because I believe this is a nice community and other people have done it before. After dealing with a 29g nano reef tank for over a year now with nothing but problems, I ditched it for a bigger tank. Actually, I have been thinking about doing a big aquarium for a while now. The tank is a 100g (60”x19”x20”). More about the 100g equipment later, well I will just let the pics speak for themselves...
Big Update: 12/28/05
I haven't updated in a little while so I guess I will catch up on what I have been working on for the past couple of days. I started off by finishing up the painting on the canopy and stand. After I let the paint dry, I then polyurethaned the whole thing. I installed a wood floor under the stand. After that I polyurethaned it too. I cut a piece of foam to go under the tank and another piece for the back of the stand to help muffle the sound. Then I waited on everything to dry and started installing 4 VHO's to the canopy w/ a reflector. Boy, I have never seen so many wires for just 4 lights in my life . I painted the back of the aquarium blue just because I wanted it to look natural even though black would match the overflow . After that I put some glass divider pieces in the sump and siliconed them in. I then started to work on the plumbing for the tank and finished that up last night. Today I filled up the aquarium with water to check for leaks and test the pump out. All good so far, except I need to stop the noise coming fro the overflow (it sounds like Niagara Falls) Well enough of the chat, here are some pics
