Hi, So I am thinking about upgrading my tanks at work (2.5G Pico and 5.5G Nano) for after the contest finishes this year. I want to upgrade to a single system with a larger water capacity as the office shuts down for Christmas and I am not comfortable leaving these running unattended for over a week, even with DIY ATO. So I did what any respecting person would do while at work, trawl through EvilBay, I managed to find a tank in the size that I want Red Sea Max 130D, currently I am winning the bidding war online with this. I am attempting to win. Red Sea Max 130D Tank Tunze 6015 Wavemaker Media Basket Tunze 9002 Skimmer *** Most likely trade or sell this*** Powerhead 2x Stock Return Pumps Cabinet Ends 5pm on Friday, nice So as far as I can tell I still need to purchase the below Heater: I am thinking that I need a 200-300W heater for a 34 Gallon Tank? Entering British Winter now so will need more than moving temp 5 Celcius Lights: Obviously I have my Chinese Black Box (168W) which should be sufficient for this tank, I have also put aside a small budget (£150) for lighting upgrades if required Biofilter: I will need more Rock, thinking about going slowly with this build and seeing if i can get my hands on some Stax Rocks and Dr Tims and going dry start route this time Next Question, something that has been on my mind for a little while now. Lagoon, Penninsula, Bommie, what does this aquascaping names actually mean?

Otherwise, this will mostly be a TT from a 20G to a 60G. I currently have ~10kg of LR in my 20G. I'll be adding an extra 20kg LR to the 60G (split between DT & sump) - I've already been cycling some dry rock for nearly 2 months in a storage bin in preparation of the upgrade. All the equipment except the return pump is now with me - that will come when they deliver the tank to my house. Here's a basic sketch design of how the DT & sump looks like: This is a pic of how the cabinet will be (as texted by my LFS manager to me this afternoon): The color of the cabinet will be black matte: And this was the two of us discussing and adjusting the sump design repeatedly over the past few days: I left the sump design up to my LFS manager to decide. I'm not confident in designing my own sump, tbh, and he's more experienced than I am, so he'll be getting to it. The salt used will be Fritz RPM. I'll be mixing the salt a day ahead of the tank's arrival so that we can quickly scape the system and get it filled up and running as soon as possible. This whole setup did cost me a lot of time, effort, planning and money, but I think it's worth it. The main reason behind this upgrade is because my 20G is cracking, and the crack is angling towards the bottom panel of the glass - it's just a matter of time before the tank collapses. The secondary reason is because my Starry Blenny is too large and I think he'll appreciate a larger tank. The whole system will be set up in my bedroom, and no fans or chillers will be used since my room is quite cool enough, especially when I turn both the fan and A/C on at night. Will update when the tank arrives. Stay tuned! 🙂
