72 Gallon Bow Front Nightmare!


Todesengel

Recommended Posts

Actually these bulbs are black... very very very old bulbs. They are prob the original bulbs that came with it when I bought it from the guy on RC. 10k Ushio's will be ordered next pay day. As well as some Koralia Hydor Magnums.

 

Buuuuuuuuuuut....... I AM DONE!! I love the way the aquascaping turned out. The water is still a little hazy from seating the live rock but it will look great in a few days with some extra carbon and chemi-pure elite.

Trying to figure out what I want to do for livestock! So many more options now that I am not in the nano club! Definitely going to get a red spotted blenny, but that's all I got so far.

AWESOME!

 

Wish I could get my tank going faster. Waiting on Dead Rock to become Live Rock. and with the past holidays I never worked on the tank.

 

nice job!

LOL I will never cycle live rock again, from now on if I ever need more LR its going to be from somebody's established system on craigslist for cheap. No more $5-$7lb and have to cure BS for me. On another note, I ordered my 10k Ushio 150w's today! Got them off of Marinedepot for $59 each and $10 for 2nd day air. Hopefully be here on Monday!

I just read your whole thread. I am happy the new tank turned out. It looks good. I am in the process of building a 3'Lx2'Wx2'H and a stand.

Nice looking tank. I am going to be setting up a 90gallon soon. Not quite nano either but am keeping my biocube 14. Are you liking your background color? What is it? I am gonna paint mine when it comes in.

Great thread, great tank!

 

I'm following this now. :)

 

In the next week I'll be picking up my own new 72 gallon bowfront with overflow, sump, stand, and return pump. I'll have to make the decision on lighting sometime thereafter. This thread has been really great so far.

 

Great job so far eh!

I got a massive hair alage problem and I am blaming it on my marine style sump. I am in the process of putting together a 20L sump and then I have to seriously clean this mess up before I take anymore pictures haha.

 

Thanks for the comments guys!

Your spray painting inspired me to do the same with my new 72 gallon bowfront!

 

Voila!!

Any updates here Tod? I'm just about to take the plunge and buy some lights for my tank and I'd really like to see some more shots of your tank (especially with the new bulbs).

 

Also, how do the moonlights look considering the top plastic support piece on the tank is almost directly blocking the middle moonlights? Does it have a big effect?

 

Pics? :D

 

Hope all is well with your tank!!

He won't post a picture because of algae problems. I was waiting to see his new Ushio 10k's also.

 

I ended up getting the same bulbs. He thinks they are too yellow. I find them to be a normal white. This is after I have switched from a 20k. I'll be going reeflux 20k next time around. the 10k's look fine but they do not "pop" the color of the coral.
