Should I MP10 this thing or no ?

 

Black sand again or no ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

should probably start a poll, but I cant figure out how to do that , so just answer my questions. :P

I was looking at return pump upgrade options , and found that my QuietOne 1200 will fit in the back chamber.

 

Chamber is 2.97" wide and the 1200 is 2.75" wide.

 

Should I just go with the single larger pump with the Y fitting , or maybe break it up in 2 single pumps and eliminate the Y fitting.

 

Third option would be running the 1200 with the SCWD that was bought for another tank and never used.

 

 

Stock pump = 211 gph

QuietOne 1200 = 296 gph

Do the upgrade pump - I think you will be happier. For sand, I'd go regular sand if any. For power head, if you have an MP10, use it. If not, get something cheaper (jebao, etc).

I am waiting for the Tunze 6040. I think it will add amazing flow and what not to our tanks ( nano ) and hide well. Plus SILENT!

 

Hit me up!

Just give up and pass it on to a local fellow reefer. (Me) hahaha jk. Sub'd. Can't wait to see for the start up. I'm starting up a LED RSM 130D also.



Also, I'm running a Jebao WP-10 in the RSM and it flows pretty nice, I would say go for that, since they are dirt cheap for the flow. I kinda want a WP-25 to make massive waves.

Thanks guys

 

The tank arrived yesterday, but there is a little separation in the false wall seam, so I have messages out to MD & IM to see what they want to do about it. I could easily fix it myself, but being a new tank, I shouldn't have to. Customer service info for both says M-F only, so it may be a waiting game for now.

 

 

Hopefully I will have good news soon.

Are you local ?

 

 

I already have 2 WP-25's , but they would be massive in this tank. I will sell off much of the stuff from my 90 and then figure out which pump I will go with. I will be running a tunze 6015 for now until I decide, I have 2 of them so I am more than good until then.

Pretty local, I'm in North Dallas! Dang if you wanna get rid of those WP-25s let me know I might wanna upgrade the WP-10 in my RSM.

Nice, we have a few local people on here. Some of us meet up occasionally , and when Kat is in town she joins in as well.

 

 

I will keep you in mind on the 25's , I want to at least give them a test run in this tank to see what they will do.

what nanobox you getting? a duo??

 

Not getting an entire fixture, I will just be running the internals. I will probably go with 3-4 pucks though.

Are you getting into the CNCReef enclosures? Cause that they are beautiful.

There's a local reefer selling that sort of set up. :ninja: Should just jump on one of his, I've seen his set up before, its so nice… Makes me want a rimless cube. Too bad I'm stuck with a RSM 130D.

Blah, sucks the tank arrived with a boo boo. This seems not uncommon with IM tanks <_<

 

MD seems to take care of its customers, hoping/thinking they'll make things right with you. Can't wait to see this tank develop.
