I have been working on this project here and there for a while but I figured it was time to start an official thread. This tank will hopefully be filled in the next few weeks! Current Progress: Tank: Drilled 40 Breeder with Modular Marine Overflow (Bean Animal Style) Sump: 20 Gallon Long with Custom Baffles https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/custom-20g-long-sump-design-feedback-wanted.601665/ Filtration: Refugium and Klir Filter Roller Lighting: ?? Flow: Sicce 2.0 return pump with RFG nozzles Heater: 200W Cobalt Neotherm This tank marks a lot of firsts for me so please chime in if you have suggestions. Does anyone still use Miracle Mud? I was thinking about adding it to my refugium section. I built a tray to hold some substrate in my fuge and am looking for suggestions on what to fill it with. I'm also gonna go bare bottom with this tank and hopefully grow some montis, zoas, and other encrusting corals all over the starboard at the bottom. I have a lot of montis at the top of the scape in my 20 gallon and I dont want to repeat that mistake. They are fast growers and shade out large sections of the tank. I am currently working on the plumbing which has given me a lot of appreciation for all the reefers with those immaculate color coordinated PVC works of art in their stands ( you know who you are). I am on at least the 4th home depot run at this point. Anyways I look forward to getting this tank wet and sharing the progress with everyone!
Starting a new 30 gallon nano with a used tank and stand I purchased for $100. Also building a custom sump from a 10 gallon I acquired for $5. I have performed a leak test and everything checks out so now to move on to the build. This is going to be a long slow process but I will keep everyone updated and post as the build continues to progress. Pictures will be uploaded at each stage.
