Boo's LPS lagoon. Now with video!

Recommended Posts

Hello NR! It has been a good while but I'm back. I started the hobby a few years back and some of you might remember my old shallow tank which I built back home in the Phillipines.

I have since shut this tank down when I moved to New Zealand but I just couldn't keep my hands off the salty stuff so I started planning for a tank as soon as I got into my new home.

The aim was to build something that could easily be moved if need be so I decided to go with a small 15G tank with a fuge converted AC110 for filtration.

Tank Specs:

-15G Rimless, seamless front glass 30Gallon shallow cube
-AC 110 (Fuge Mod) 20G Sump with fuge
-DIY 24 Dimmable High power LED light fixture(12 cool whites + 4 true violet + 8 royal blue) Maxspect Razor Nano 16K EcoTech Radion XR30w G3
-LED fuge light
-Hydor wavemakers- soon to be swapped for one RW-4
-Jager heater
-AutoAqua Smart ATO

I have since taken out half of the LR and replaced the sponge with a bag of Phosguard and a small clump of filter floss above it

Hype, your builds are looking stellar as always. I've been stalking your thread during my time away from the hobby and was gutted when you left. Glad to see that you're back and here to stay!
