A.G.E. 40"x28"x22" Barebottom SPS dominant

Recommended Posts

Tank is 3 sides of low iron with a 1" PVC bottom, beveled and polished edges., the overflow is made of Acrylic, it was let to stand for curing for two weeks. 2 drains @ 1 1/2" 2 returns of 3/4" Savko bulkheads, and schedule 80 plumbing.

The overflow box has acrylic that slides down over the teeth so if you need to drop the waterline level for a wavebox.

Thanks, I cant wait, custom stand being built, picking my tank up at the trucking company at the end of the week. Have Marco rocks cooking in a huge sealed tote, so all algae from my seed rocks, have been eliminated. Straight bacteria going into the new tank, no algae on the rocks or hitchhikers.

Sweet, another A.G.E owner to drool over! Nice tank, I will be expecting to see your updates.

However, this is out of the Nano size isn't it? :lol:

EDIT: glasscages doesn't get the best reviews online. oh and AGE isn't the cheapest but the quality appears to be... EXTRAORDINARY (in the kung fu voice)

Thanks everyone! I just got my tracking information so it will be here at the end of the week...I hope the stand I have being built can live up to the expectations. I have been cooking the live rock for quite awhile, so when the stand is done, I will be making the transfer quickly. If anyone wants to get one of these, talk to Chris at the Fish Gallery, he is great to work with..... cbrenes@thefishgallery.com he got me my quote really fast.

No, no and NO. Glass Cages has the worst vendor feedback I've ever seen, and has for years -- only a fool would do business with them.

Here's my tote, I am using for cooking my Marco Rocks, I actually had a bunch of rock I was cooking, and added the new Marco stuff . The rock has been cooking for 3 months, but the Marco was added a month ago. Here's a pic of the Euro Reef skimmer pulling some crap out. It's actually not so bad, a lot better then I thought would get pulled out.

 

The live rock I had cooking, had some bubble algae and was loaded with phosphates, from when I fed frozen without rinsing. So I cooked them in total darkness, in a sealed insulated tote I use for Ice. The no light conditions killed all algae, and created bacteria only rock. It took a lot of water changes to get it to that point. Amazing how much crap gets into the pores of the rock over time.

Slowly making the move.....

Sump cleaned, as well as skimmer, Calcium Reactor, loaded with fresh media, and CO2 tank refilled

IMG_4960.jpg

Waiting for the cloudiness to settle, then I will move over some coral. Hope I dont have to run both tanks for too long.

How come you didnt go to the swap, i had a huge bag of chaeto, that i gave to someone else.

 

Thanks fellas, i wish I had a barbottom tank, then i could move the rock and be done with it. trouble with the sandbed is the rock that is partially buried, and it being toxic when you pull them out. I'll have more progress tomorrow, i have to hook up my chiller tonight...89 today
