KevinStan Posted November 3, 2009 Share Posted November 3, 2009 I found two of these tanks that I finally got a hold of and now it's time to do something with em' Here is a basic rundown on what I have so far, then I will go into what I am planning on doing with it. I have the tank (Two of them exactly....) And the water volume is slightly under a gallon, but a little over while using the hang on back filter... I also have two of the mini hang on back filters I was lucky enough to find online which fit the tanks PERFECTLY. Since each HOB is rated to power 3 gallons I think I should be fine..... Using some live sand and LR to assist in filtration, and I think the water overflow from the filter is enough for water movement. I have always enjoyed the pico reefs the most (In my own definition a pico is under 5 gallons) I will really be experimenting with this smaller one and really seeing what I actually can keep in there.... I was thinking about starting with a blue hippo tang or a sting ray (OK, that was only a joke....) I would really like to add some mushrooms, and smaller zoa frags and just go from there.. but we will see how it turns out... I think I have a lot cut out for me for what I am wanting to do already.... I will be making a custom stand and canopy that will be used to house everything... (The LED light fixture I am creating... with the best of help possible on LED's - Evil66) <-- thanks again for the help! I will be running 5 Cree Lights over the top of this... 2 of the 460 nm from nanotuners website, 2 royal blue from ledsupply and 1 cool white for the daylight that will be mounted dead center.... I am going to be using 3 different LED drivers to control everything, and want to try and make a programmable led module that will create a sun up with only the actinics, daylight with the actinics and royal blues, and a mid afternoon simulation with the center mounted cool white... then reverse it all back down for night time and have the moonlight cut on..... Here are some pictures of what I have so far... feel free to follow along or ask any questions... you can also view my other thread on my reef vase I currently have going as well.... And now for the images... Link to comment
