Sps dominated cube tank

Recommended Posts

Kayleen

Due to power outage last month, I have lost most of sps and fishes. And I have decided to make myself a little more bigger tank, so that I could have more space for fishes and corals.

 

My new buid will be:

 

40" x 40" x 20" 12mm glass tank with two side optic clear glass.

29" x 24" x 16" 8-10mm glass

 

My stand will be similar to v1 rotate reef in the sky. Loved his stand, hope he does not mind.

 

My goal is for this tank as silent as possible, so I am trying herbie overflow with

2 x 1.5 " as for main drain and emergency and 3/4" single return line.

 

Eheim 1262 will be use for return pump, I was hoping this able to handle turn overate for my capacity. Planning to T it to chiller as well. ( or should I go with bigger pump ?

 

2 mp40wes are reponsible to keep my sps happy

 

And I had great success with zeovit, I might go on with that road. Hopefuly I could achieve the same result as my previous nano tank

I will update progress of the build

Thanks

Thank you for the kind words rehype, I have some lps managed to survive and 3 fishes also. They are in my holding tank.

 

 

I want to keep my sump as simple as possible. This is my sump layout

Wow, you're dropping some dollar. Send me one of dem MP40's when you got the chance...

 

Are you a big fan of the BioDigest and ReefBooster? I've never personally seen any crazy results with them.

 

GL, and I'm subbed. :D

Lol Can not say I am big fan, just like to dose a little to digest and booster once a month with zeovit running.

Thanks, I have changed my height to 22" . This build might took a bit longer than I expected.

Wow !!! Great build so far!!! So how do you like the Prodibio ? Have you used it before? I was think of switching out from dosing Vinegar for the Prodibio BioDigest and Bioptim. According to the instructions you dose every 15 days.

I would get a larger return especially if you are going to run anything else on it. I was going to use that pump for my return, but I found out later it doesn't deal with head pressure too well. I'm glad I up sized to a larger pump. It runs my fuge and reactors comfortably. FWIW I went with a WB 3000. My tank is 100 gal. Looks great so far, best of luck!

Used prodibio with zeovit dose digest only along with zeovit, but dosed inly once a month or so.

Thank you, I am sticking with 1264 eheim which is rate for 4500lph. Should be enough, the 1264 will shoot direct to chiller and output from chiller straight to return for DT.

Not yet lol
