  1. Relapse - 7.5 gallon Desktop Tank

    My original intention was to make it a bommie reef, but I think it doesn't really work well at this scale. I'm happy to hear that it looks that way lol

    The sandstorm has subsided!

    So I'm about a month late, but it's finally running!

    I've been running the tank with water now for about a week to see how my mp10 would work and to observe how much water evaporated on average. Evap wasn't a real issue but there seems to be a bit of particulate going into the tank due to our overhead fan. I may run a aquaclear 20 to add some mechanical filtration. Live Rock will be in the tank at the beginning of next month if everything goes according to plan

    Update: Decided to move the tank to the bedroom. I Couldn't stand the thought of it busting open and ruining my computer The LED light is complete for the most part. Here is a breakdown of the specs: 3 Cree 3up (2RB1NW) 3 420nm Violets 1 OCW w/ 90 degree Optics 3 nano led drivers from rapid LED 0-10v 700ma 6x6" low profile heat sink 120mm low profile fan 9 inch gooseneck mounting kit from cnc-reef All of it is wired using cat5 ethernet cable. Next step is to take my Apex off my vivarium(what became of my 40 breeder!). It's only running the lights and a mistking now, so I'll need to get a couple of timers to replace it. With the Apex I plan on using the 0-10v dimming to create sunrise/sunset and cloud cover.

    The whole thing minus the guard is about 1 inch thick. Working on getting an enclosure done this weekend.

    Yo yo! Whats up pismo! As of right now the plan is to keep the tank "low tech"(lol). I'll be running the mp10 but no other filtration/dosing as I'll be relying on weekly water changes to keep everything stable. As for inhabitants, it's going to softies and LPS and lots of inverts and gobies. I changed my plans for the light . Without giving away too much here are some keywords: Full spectrum, Low profile. Custom built, clouds

    Long time no talk. Got something awesome in the mail as a belated birthday present from the girlfriend. It starts with Ecotech and ends with mp10
