waterat4 Posted February 15, 2009 Share Posted February 15, 2009 Well here goes, here is my biorb life 60 marine tank, its taken a while to get to this stage and more money then I was expecting here are a few picture of what i've done so far Let it begin! Lighting track Lighting tracks in place Extra LED's rigged up! Baffles Sign writers vinyl for the black background, washing up liquid a blade and a scraper everything ready Equipment in At this stage I had a major problem with the extra LED's they melted the housing, I was over driving them and it was just too hot for the polyurethane housing, lucky I caught it in time but extra LED's mark one went in the trash! I will add extra lighting in later, one step at a time I think! Live Rock drilled and mounted all in place This is where im at now, not looking too bad. The rock was only partly cycled so im in the midst of the maturation process took my first set of readings today: Temp: 76.5 F Salinity: 1.025 Ammonia: 6.5 mg/l Nitrite: 1.0 mg/l Nitrate: 50 mg/l PH: 8.2 Calcium: 400 mg/l Phosphate: 2.5 mg/l KH: 250 mg/l Iron: 0.0 mg/l Im not sure why my KH is so off the charts but the was a lot of live rock sediment from milling the rock, maybe this has something to do with it, I will be keeping a close eye on it to make sure it comes down to normal tolerances. Other than that im stilling back and watching all my little hitchhikers! let me know what you all think, im sure I will have missed something very obvious cheers! Link to comment
