Basser1 BC29 Updated 6/4/12

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Nano-Reefers! I had posted on another board about my Blue Spot Jawfish and posted a pic. A couple of folks asked to see some pics of my tank and set-up. I've had this BC29 going since Sept. of '06. It has been, and continues, to be a work in progress. It's amazing how your tastes change with time. Originally, everything was pretty much stock. Then I did the usual mods, i.e, widen the chamber between 1 & 2, added a Sapphire Re-Circulating skimmer in chamber 2. The pump has been changed to a Rio 6hf with a Hydor-Flow attachment, the pump is in chamber 3 along with a Stealth 75 watt heater. I also have a Tunze 6025 Nano-Stream. I have a more "open" arrangement for the fish to swim. My corals are a variety of Soft, LPS, and SPS.

Now that's a slick looking tank!

 

I'm looking at the BC29 along with the Nano-Tuners HQI upgrade (pricey!) to get back in the hobby after a long hiatus. Any heat problems? Are you running a chiller?

Thought I would post an update of my tank. As you can see, I have gone to the "stick forest" look!

Whoa, sexy.

 

 

Thanks fellas, but that pic is about 2 years old,LOL! It doesn't look like that now. I have since removed the zoas, and most LPS corals. I now have mostly SPS, acros and montis now. Still have the duncans and dendros as well, and of course, the Picassos. ;)

 

FYI, the pic on the previous page dated Feb. 6, 2010 is a more recent pic. Hope you still like it! ;)
