Dan's 45g Triton

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

My actual tank is quite hard to maintain due to some mistakes I did when I was starting. All life is doing good but I decided to build a new tank, a little bigger and prepared for the Triton Method.

 

Specs:

 

- Tank: Custom 40g tank 30 x 24 x 14

- Sump: Custom 26 x 16 x 12

- Light: 2x AI Hydra 26

- Circulation: 2x WAV Pumps 1x MP10QD

- Skimmer: Skimz SN123 Nyos 120

- Return Pump: Sicce SDC 7.0

 

I'm still working on plumbing. Once I finish I'll move to the correct spot.

Hello!

 

Finally I was able to move livestock to the new tank. Still need to organize light wires.

BBT was angry with the tank change but it's fully recovered.

Thanks!

 

A quick update: I replaced the 2 WAVs for 1 MP10. WAVs are too strong for this tank. Hopefully one day Neptune make one smaller version.

 

I also replaced the skimmer for a Nyos 120. Skimz 123ND pump simply stopped working for the second time.. Nyos is doing very well so far. I'm impressed with how silent it is compared to other AC skimmers.

Wow! Awesome build. Great choices all around

 

Interesting to hear about your Skimz pump giving out. I'm using one for my return and it started giving me trouble the other day.

Yes, and when it was on warranty they replaced for a new one but both end up failing. And now that I'm using Nyos and seeing the foam I realized Skimz pump wasn't working as it should for a long time.
