Looks really good. Usually don’t like euphilyas but your tank makes me look nice

Thank you. Still small but hopefully they grown nicely. My plan is a euphyllia island with torches in sandbed and ancora/para on top of the stone..

 

the island on the left is in the making to be an acan island 🙂

 

have some problem with the right stone. Plankning it to be an anemon rock. Have two super red bubbletip.. my problem is the streamer. I have only one mp10 in that corner making it very stormy 🙂

Yeah, same with Denmark. I would not be able to enjoy the hobby due to the prices, if I were to move back.

Exciting custom build!  Nice to see another long tank.  :biggrin:  I'll be following this one.

 

How did you make that concrete top?  Is the concrete sealed with something, and does the depression where the tank sits accumulate salt dripping?

Thanks! 🙂

 

I reinforced the concrete with reinforcement iron as well as faced out for aquarium and aquarium mat.

 

besides that, i made holes for the overflowbox ( 3 holes down ), return and for the power cable from MP10.

 

Every PVC pipe is covered in brass pipes for a sharper look 🙂 

 

The Nanobox Quad is covered in brass goosenecks and all the wiring hidden in gooseneck -> back Wall -> back in the sumpcabin

 

hard to describe in english 😛

I have tried Vibrant.  It's most useful for creating a placebo effect.

Anyone who knows why my black/white torch is turning white in torches? 

 

All my other torches are fine. The black/white seems very happy besides the pale color.. 

 

it is the closest one in picture

I’m not sure how I missed this build!  😃

 

Things are looking really nice. I can’t wait to see it mature. 🙂

I have been going with the exact same thing... Acans, Blasto and rock anenomes are loving it... The zoas are a little slower to react, but I am going to be patient and give them time.

Same here.. but one of my torches didnt like that much light. So for now im going with a little lower. 

 

Seems like both my anemons and euphyllia like these settings better. My SPS:er also seems ok.

 

im going to raise it up 10% over a period of time F0C491C8-4B1D-4547-8752-84D8459DF7C1.thumb.png.91d702a488dd7b20c9ae90aef50b639f.png
