you get a glass cover top that fits perfectly

 

 

KEWL, thanks...Your setup looks good so far. Keep it up.

How are you going to route the overflow? Can you post pics once

it's done?

Aquapod 24, 70W MH Sunpod, stock pump, Fission Skimmer (sucks... probably replace it with a Remora), two powerheads, and a Reefkeeper 2. Located in Hillsborough North Carolina.

 

I've got plans to add an external overflow and sump. The stand is custom made for cabinet space and the future sump. It's about 6 days old, and I just added some live rock today!

Hey Egplant! Where did you get that stand? You mentioned it was custom in your blog. Is that something we can order?

 

Your setup with the controller and stand looks great.

Apod 24, Open Top, 150W Sunpod, 2 - MJ900s.

20 lbs sand and about 30 lbs rock.

Bags of Rubble and Floss on top. (Plus carbon for now.) Not planning on a skimmer.

 

 

Adding Hydor Flo and 1/2" Loc-Line tubing to split and run behind rocks.

Needed to pull of stock attachment to tank output and added a small piece of tubing (7/8" OD, 5/8" ID) to "adapt" to the 1/2" ball socket flexi tubing.

I am wondering about your light setup...when you get the 70W HQI, you don't get the hood, correct? But is the tank covered with something to prevent evaporation/fish acrobatics?

 

Yes, the tank comes with a full glass cover. I'm not currently using it, and evaporation isn't bad, but I've not yet added any fish.

 

I'm not worried about evaporation. I'd rather have the gas exchange. I do wonder if I'll have problems with jumpers though.

Hey eggplant,

What is you water evap? Mine is close to 1/2 gallon per day.

I am also running completely open top.

I may make a custom top, that is open in the center and covers the outer edge. That may help with jumpers yet still allow air exchange.

Cheers

Mine is similar. Maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of a gallon.

That tank is sick junkitu! It'd be awesome if you had more types of mushrooms, like colors. It is really clean and nice looking.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Alex :D ! I'm a total noob to SW so it's nice to get some encouraging feedback. I wish I had space for other varieties/colors of shrooms but I got the LR from a buddy when he re-did his 150G and they had already taken over. I've got my eye on some pulsing xenias to add a little more movement to the tank and then I think I'm done stocking...I hope.

Hello all,

 

We'll it's been quite sometime since Hurricane Ivan wreaked havoc in the Panhandle of Florida. I lost my 55 gal reef tank, but just recently purchased the

Aquapod 24! I just got my tank last week and several of the items arriving the remainder of next week.

 

Here's my set up:

 

Aquapod 24 Gal

Sunpod 150w HQI Metal-Halide

Coralife Super Skimmer 65 gal

100 Watt visi-therm Stealth heater

Maxi-Jet 1200

Mini-Jet 606

Coralife temperature probe

 

I think I've read every forum on the aquapod 24 gal. Thank you guys for sharing your success stories as well as not so successful ones. I hope to get your feedback as soon as I get some pics posted!
