The Burbon Glass Pico

Recommended Posts

dhoffroad

Well got it going last night want to say thanks to DiyDude for your closed loop idea by moding it I was able to make this work.

 

Tank specs: 1gal "burbon glass" tank, 18w PC (coralife 2 x 9 W ,1- 10,000k & 1- actinic ) closed loop with heater chamber (see diy

closed loop w/ heater chamber (pico size) and auto top off system.

 

Right now I just threw some frags, and small chunks of LR that I had layin in my 10 gal into this tank. I go the sand from a LFS out of a established system. The first two pics are of how it looks the 3rd pic is with flash so you can get a better idea of the layout, and the 4th is the closed loop w/heater system (for those who have not seen it yet)

Looks pretty cool. How do you plan on cleaning off the coraline once it starts to build up on the glass?

i'll just answer for him... that's what makes a bourbon glass a bourbon glass... they are really really wide so that there is a lot of surface contact... makes for a better aroma and taste... you only fill it up with about .5-1.0 inches of liquid... When you're drinking bourbon... now, when you're drinking a reef tank i'm not so sure...

thought about drillin, but the glass is prety thin and there are no flat spots. besides I just bought the "tank" 1 week ago an puttin the CLS together only took 1 afternoon. all in all not much time put into it.

hey man it's not a FILTER. do you know what a "closed loop system " is?. basicly it is just for flow , a way to get power heads out of the tank . there is no FILTRATION in the chamber it just HOLDS THE HEATER. so what I got in all that plumbing is a power head and a heater out of the tank.
