My tank update

Recommended Posts

Seems like ever since I started this tank I've been upgrading it. These are the upgrades I've done recently. Replaced my maxijet900 with a Seio 620, moved the entire tank over to a drilled 20l with custom acrylic sump and a new stand, replaced the coralife clamponMH with an Aquamedic pendant. I spent about 6 hours doing the switch last Saturday and it went pretty smoothly and I am happy with the tank now. Here's the pix:

Here's a pic of the digi frag I got in December and how it's doing now.

I'll be switching the remora out for an ASM mini pretty soon. I'm placing an order for a lot of SPS frags very soon so I'll post another update when I get it!

I definitely like the new look vs. the old look. Nice tank...I just drilled my 20L and I have a 20L fuge underneath(work in progress)...it is nice to see pics of other 20L's...they always look so good.

Thanks guys the clown has been in the tank since the beginning. I got it when it was small and it is getting kinda big now. It's actually kind of shy for a clown. It always used to have the torch host it, but for some reason after the switch it only goes in the toadstool.

 

I definitely like the new setup also vs. the old one. It feels more like a reef now and not like a rock pile with frags everywhere.

Got an ASM mini yesterday and it's set up and skimming. It creates a TON of bubbles but damn this thing is loud. Any ideas how to muffle the sound? I have some acro frags coming in the next few week pix up when they get here!

Very long overdue tank update.

 

Changed my lighting over to a PFO Pendant, Icecap Ballast, and 175w Iwasaki bulb. Uses less electricity than my 150w Aquamedic, and has probably 3 times the light output. Only semi-drawback is the color isn't as blue, but I actually like it better.

 

I put a Sedra 2500 on the ASM mini to quiet it down, and is pulling some nice skimmate.

 

Having some algae problems at the moment, but hopefully will soon be past it.

Had a custom frag rack built by DKReefkeepers. Great job!

Future upgrades/projects. Kalkreactor, phosban, upgraded flow (tunze nano stream?), and SPS only.

 

Wait for an update in another 9 months! LOL
