tanks look awesome. i wanna see more of them 

I just moved stuff around yesterday. Trying to make room for some other stuff and make what's in there a little happier as far as lighting and flow.

 

If all goes according to plan I should have a clam in there sometime soon. Trying to carve out a space for it! 

 

Do you have a tank right now?

Could you please describe for a complete novice your sump set up and the equipment you have in the cabinet. I read your entire thread. It's my inspiration for my first try as I already bought same tank 1 mo ago.

How's the summer been treating you @Justind823? Great to see ya!

 

What kind of clam are you thinking of adding to your tank? 

Howdy CM! Busy with traveling for work so it's been hard to keep the tank pleasing to the eye. What better than to just go ahead and get a clam for the tank right? :) 

I'm looking at getting a maxima but I've been down in LA for going on three weeks now so we'll see how the tank is looking when I get home in a few days!

Here is a list on my main page with a little more detail. Congrats on the new tank!

  • Tank: Eheim Aquastyle 9G
  • Sump: Mr. Aqua 7G with DIY baffles
  • Flow/Filtration: Ecotech MP10 in the main tank, Eheim Compact+ 2000 as a return pump
  • Lighting: Nanobox Tide w/ Bluefish Mini, Stock Eheim Aquastyle light for the sump
  • Heating: 200w Jager

I also use two BRS 1.1ml dosers for dosing two part and a autotopoff.com dual float switch ato.

Well everybody... this tank is no more :tears:

 

We live within Sonoma County in Glen Ellen and we were evacuated for these past two weeks due to the wildfires. Thankfully our house survived but unfortunately for almost the entire time we were evacuated our house was without power. All you reefers know what that means! 

 

I was really bummed to lose everything but I'm already thinking about what's next ;)

Let me know if you need anything random that could help rebuild. I have a few things!

In my short time here I've learned this is an amazing community.  While I can't contribute the wisdom I don't have, I can contribute frags and supplies.  

 

Once the dust settles, let us know what direction you're planning to go with a tank.  I'm sure we can get you pretty well started off.

Well I pulled the trigger the other day and bought some goodies...

@Marine Depot had a group buy going on that I couldn't pass up! I'll need to start a new tank thread and tell you all about it. 

 

Decided I might as well upgrade and start fresh.

 

I'm sad to be moving on from the old 9G thread but it is what it is. And so it goes!
